In my day, as in yours I'm sure, there was no such thing as GCSEs. I left school 18 months before what I assume was the equivalent, GCE O level, I returned to take 3 O levels failed 2 and passed Maths, about 14 years later I took GCE O level in English and passed so that I could gain entry to a degree course. I never really felt out of my depth alongside the other students all of whom, had A Levels. I think the standards appear to have dropped year on year, the GCSE seems about the same strength as Secondary Modern leaving exams, which from memory didn't have a name, in the mocks I had passed 7 out of 7.

Well after months of hard slog and even homework/revision on coaches to away matches....I am so proud that TOPCATJNR got 9 GCSE passes out of 10 exams and was only one mark off getting all ten. (This has gone back for re'marking). :clap: :clap:

I was always a rare creature; started geography, history and music for A-levels, but once decided on being a cellist left geography though I liked it. Got a pass grade for hitory and an 'A' for music but went to the Royal Academy of Music where it only mattered how you PLAYED !!

As it should, you knew what you wanted and earned it. Today's students go to college take media studies or psychology and finish their degree with still no idea where to go, becoming first rate baristas or burger flippers.
