Report Young Can Not Cope With Life in House prices and the economy Posted January 5, 2013 I would be really interested on your views as to what specifically in the education system is ruining kids' life chances. I could write a book about this subject. How about this. A level Chemistry coursework with maths content, my son was doing A level maths so got virtually 100% right, other students basically failed but were given C's. A sample of the coursework was then checked by the external board and the C grade work was found to only be worth E's so my sons A was knocked down to a C despite it being worth an A. And we couldn't ask for his work to be marked individually because it is cohort marking and there is no way an individual can dispute the moderation. I have dozens of examples like this - so appalling that no one ever believes me.
