Are you serious?... If you are then...The British High Schooling system is based on marking through percentile basis... The Ordinary Levels and Advanced Levels marking system is on percentile basis. A lot of other qualifications/academic examinations are based on it.

So its also followed in Pakistan and a number of other countries.

Is it?

I did my A Levels from London and my marks were in Percentages and not in Percentiles. Sumaaan, would you comment on this?

hey derivativetrader, I did my Cambridge GCE A' Level from Karachi and my marks were in percentiles. You should read the back of your grade sheet more carefully<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

Mr Faraz,

I know that once you entered for British Examinations from abroad the board here opt a different marking strategy than later. I was just referring to another person's writing whereby she was mentioning the whole British Education to be same, which is obviously NOT the case.
Regarding whether I should read the back of my sheet more carefully, I must say that I believe in FRONT PAGE news rather than the explanations!

Regards,

SalamX [I] !
is it exptable that the no. of rotio of studntX getting pass in CA is a/c to the market demand [o)] ....??[p]


<br />I hear a lot of you people talking about ICAP's passing policy.

Well I have heard the following from a Baba who was also at one time in the Council. He told me once that the passing marks remains changing and depends upon the qaulity of paper and students response to that paper i.e. if the paper is a toughy, passing marks are lower and if a paper is easy, the passing criteria goes above. Further, he elaborated that passing marks are based on the average performance of examinees i.e. say 1000 students gave the exams, their papers were marked and simple average of their marks was computed which comes to say 65, now all the students getting above 65 are passed and below are failed.

Personally I have witnessed the same thing. I was refereed in a paper when I was 100% confident that the least I will get will be 70 and similarly in my other exams, i performed lower to my own expectations but was above the average, so I passed.

Seems like fair and square to me [)]

I believe that the above method, if used by ICAP is right. Also consider the worth of CA as compared to other professionals. Who wants to see a qualified CA to end up like MBA or Doctors or Engineers or Indian CAs????
