    Proofreading….If only more people would pay it the attention that they should. It seems to me that literary standards are diminishing with each year that passes.

    don't understand why as levels dont still exist. i hate that my ucas predicted grades is completely my teachers' prerogative; no solid data of performance in a public examination like you used to get with AS levels. universities will suffer, as they did last year, having to put down grades as A levels become harder and predicted grades become…. less predictable

    This man is a diamond in the rough when it comes to admissions tutors. He is so candid about this process that so often gets wrapped up in all this bureaucratic nonsense.
