First ever Maths A-level where getting almost half of answers wrong will get you an A
Students who got almost half of the answers wrong in their Maths A-level this summer will get a grade A, it has emerged.

Just 54 percent is required for an A in this year’s OCR exam, according to a leaked copy of the grade boundaries seen by The Daily Telegraph. It is believed to be the lowest amount of marks ever needed to secure a top grade in a Maths A-level.

Students with 43 percent will be awarded a B, those with 33 percent will get a C and those with 13 percent will pass their A-level with a grade E. ...

Now that God does not bless this country Satan and his Liberalist ideology is reducing all our authorities and institutions to feeble and inadequate.

This means that our society becomes more wicked and iniquity increases.

The visible church is dying out with unBiblical worldly ideologies overwhelming Bible doctrines.

So education today is not blessed and the actual achievements of our children is falling.

For some years we have watched the Liberalising of the schools to the extent that education and curriculum are failing to produce educated children in society.

We have heard of cases where potential employers have complained of a lack in standards of the young folk applying for jobs.

A nation which rejects God will pay the price of Wrath against them.

There is nothing wrong with this...

The rest of the nation is sick and tired of being way behind the folks in Mississippi. So they just decided to lower the grades to our scale...

It nice to see the country standing behind us in leading the world by having the most students finish classes with an A...

Grades aren't important as long as the letter is high🙃

The “DUMMING DOWN” continues!

Who controls the education system?

Conservatives or liberals?


Has it become clear to you yet?

Another misleading headline. It should be titled, "In the UK,...." since few people in the UK are evangelical Christians who read this blog, and few churches in the UK are broadcasters here.
Maybe we should search the Jerusalem Post to find news articles there about life in Israel; at least, a few dispensationalists here would find them interesting.

... much of calculus, and statistics, important, yes in a specific context.
Authors, journalists, politicians, bureaucrats, and corporate PR often make statistical claims to sound more credible and "scientific." To scrutinize these, one has to learn the discipline before one can find fault in its use. Statistics usually involves massaging data until one gets the desired or convenient result. There is nothing in the data itself, for example, to suggest whether one should use the mean, median, mode, min, or max to summarize a data set. And how should one handle outliers?

And any poll result or scientific claim published by someone with a Conflict of Interest should be dismissed outright. This is more a matter of ethics than statistics. Think about it: the Washington Post is owned by a man whose other business has contracts with the CIA.

More evidence that governments want a poorly educated populace because they are easier to deceive and thereby control.

First, hard to tell coz of a paywall, but this looks like fraud.

Second A lot of math is not practical in daily life, the basics are often more than enough.

Is much of calculus, and statistics, important, yes in a specific context, but not in daily life, hence why so many never apply it and never master it.

You can clearly tell the difference in asian students who are good at math, but are useless in practical applications, many cannot teach because they themselves don't understand the value outside of using it to pass an exam.

I sometimes grade masters’ and doctoral theses for students in two Bible colleges. The minimum grade required for an A is 94, and very few students ever attain it. In fact, a fair number of them fail. I’d sure hate for a surgeon with a 33 average in math to cut on me, and a mechanic who can only get 13 out of a hundred right would probably see no reason why my car shouldn’t work just fine with only one wheel. The only viable future for these dunces is to become Democratic senators and representatives.
