We take RE
early at my school, and I got an A*
I'm half Spanish, and got an A in my AS
(cos you can't get A*!)
Got the big lot of them next year.
The exams, by the way, are NOT easier. Every year, the same %age of the population is awarded the same grade, eg, 35% may get Cs, to account for the exam one year being easier or harder, to not allow this to have an effect. Even if they WERE
easier, the same number of top/average/bottom grades are awarded. Hope this makes sense!
