for A levels here its

A 80% +
B 70 -> 80 %
C 60 -> 70 %
D 50 -> 60 %
E 40 - 50 %
U (fail) less than 40%

C/D is considered average and an E or above is considered a pass

for gcse (high school) it was easier to get the A,B,C grades as it went A* to G

ah icic.. I'd like to be a 'foreign' exchange student and take classes in England.. just to see how their education system works.. it would be exciting too :) as I have never been anywhere outside the U.S. I was invited to go to England via some ambassador program, but it cost way too much.

Anyone here study chemistry or physics?

i can post some past papers

P.S you should have come to england and stayed with me :)

Yea, I'm better at physics though.. post a link to a physics exam or something, and I'll see how an American high school student does.

hah.. that would have been tight :) You could teach me the accent

At my hs, they offer three physics courses. Physics 1, which is basic mechanics. And then 2 higher level physics courses. Physics 2: B Is electricity and magnetism, which covers the topics for the physics B AP test. Then, there is Physics 2: C, which is again mechanics.. but with calculus, and is much more complex. It covers the mechanics AP test. I only took physics 1 and physics 2:C b/c phys C is more challenging, and I didn't have any room for phys B. 9th I took bio 1, 10th I took chem 1, 11th I took bio 2 and physics 1, and 12th I took phys 2:C

Here they offer Algebra 1, Algebra 2/Trigonometry, Algebra 3, Geometry, Precalculus, AP Calculus, Statistics, and I think a few other electives. Some of those also come in honors if you want. If you want to go into something higher than AP Calculus still in your high school career, you have to go to PSO which is post secondary option where you go to college for part of the day.

Ours is similar.. thats a lot of math classes for 4 years of hs.

Alg 1 in 8th, geom in 9th, alg 2 in 10th, pre-cal in 11th, calc 1 and calc 2 in 12th, and differential equations for all those ahead one level in math.

I'd say WWII is my favorite period. That and the Civil War. I'm pretty much interested in anything from 1940-1965, too.

Yeah... WWII is the most interesting to me also.
