    Glad to hear you managed an A in A level History!. However, even in the mid-1990s A levels were a good deal easier - in terms of achieving a particular grade - than back in the 1960s & 1970s. I believe the switch to Absolute Marking from Relative Marking occurred in circa 1988, and thereafter A level - and GCSE - grades shot up. I recall in the early 1970s that 30% of pupils sitting A Levels failed to achieve even the lowest pass grade - ie a grade E. Nowadays over 95% manage that despite the fact that such exams are no longer restricted to the most academic pupils.
