    Tip

    Tip
    When i did my a-levels i got D,E,E Maths, Physics and computing. I got onto foundation engineering at liec uni in 2001

    Anyway what i really want to say is, while ur young, looking at uni course''s, remember to get experince in the work field u would like to work in. If you can retake the a-levels.

    After i finshed uni this year, every top company wanted 1st or a 2:1, plus 240 plus ucas points in A-level's. Why??? u may ask, this is to sive or filter out all the people that apply. Alot of students get 2:1 these days (besides me, i got 2:2 :duh: ) so the companies then look at the next thing 'a-levels'.

    The other thing that they really want is experience, if you dont get the best grades, try and build up the experience with a year out.


    check here, its a good web site. Remember try and plan your career.

    Lol, As I dont live across the pond like all of you gents, Im just forced to post my OGT (Ohio Graduation Test. Crappy things, We were the first class to take them ever :eeek: ) results.

    The scale is (from worst to best):
    Limited
    Basic
    Proficient
    Accelerated
    Advanced


    Reading- Accelerated (Missed Advanced by 2 points :blah:
    Math - Advanced
    Writing - Accelerated (Didnt even think I could write that well, Missed advanced by 5 points)
    Science- Accelerated (Missed by 2 again :waah: )
    History- Advanced (So thats why I was pushed to take AP History this year :hehe: )

    So yeah, not the same test as you guys took, but equaly as scary. Only because for 2 years the school was cramming OGT crap down our mouths and saying that 1 in 4 people would fail and have to take it again. 98% of my class mates passed. So that means that like 7 or so failed. It was way to easy

    Computing - C
    General Studies - A
    English Lit - B
    English Language - B
    Classics - B

    Not at all happy with the computing grade (did it as a night course so only 1 hour per week - clearly not long enough). Happy with classics though since I did the full A-level in one year. Didn't get into Durham but got into Newc doing comp sci - not sure if I'm gonna go this year though
