the_bear_thfc said:Thanks for the reply and advice super mario. I phoned up the careers advisor down my local branch (Chatham, home of Nelson) and he basically said that you would have to resit your maths GCSE no matter what other grades or achievements i possess. So although i agree with you lonestar in relation to the laps / distant in time of the retake, that doesnt seem to have a barring. However as i phoned up anonymously i do feel that he just threw me off, i feel that if i went down and spoke to the afco that i have had previous dealings with, i feel that he would be able to guide me better.
Additionally, slim, you just sound a very bitter twisted old man. One that sounds like he is waiting to 'pop his clogs', obviously slime by name but not by physique! Or could your username possibly be describing the 'probability' (pardon the mathematical pun) that you put you're brain into gear before speaking. Furthermore, 'pot kettle' where you have said I lack basic english capability. As I said in my last post that my English grade was fine. Maybe you are the individual that needs to go back and brush up on their reading and analytical skills?!
Finally angrydoc, Bachelor of honors is just the same as bachelor of arts, bachelor of science. My degree was upperclass second (2.1) in bachelor of law (basically a posh was of saying 2.1 in Law). Additionally to say that it is easier to get into university on a whole is 100% wrong. To get into university to study lesser subjects such as American history or animal care then yes it is, as its a government money making machine. However to do proper subjects, like law, maths, engineering or things to do whith science its getting harder and harder. The more money the universities are getting from the 'mugs' that are doing the mickey mouse courses, they are pumping back into the University to improve facilities. This then consequently results in charging higher fees, and also deman higher entry requirements (higher ucas points).
Thanks for the update on Nelson, I was obviously mislead when some barsteward told me he was dead.
