Matravers A Level Results
« on: August 14, 2008, 20:13:21 pm »

Matravers School in Westbury had an overall pass rate of 99 per cent and an A-C pass rate of 72 per cent, a 15 per cent increase on last year.

Headteacher Chris Dark said: "The big improvement has been achieved by hard work by teachers and students and we are pleased that we can see the reactions of the students today."

I also think the staff and pupils of Matravers school should be proud of excellent A Level results. They have certainly, in my opinion, negated the beliefs of those who think todays' youngsters are "no-hopers".

I wish them all the very best for the future, including those who will now go onto university.

Which means achievng an 'A' level even more meaningless.

Whilst I agree that it is a great achievement by the students, I believe the examinations need to be harder in order to distinguish the good from the better.
Already universities are setting entrance exams because they have so many applications with top grades and need to really know who is the best of the best.
