High intellectual achievement is in the grasp of only a few, but stupidity is within the grasp of all. An unintelligent man who knows his own limitations is far less likely to behave stupidly than a highly intelligent man who doesn't. In fact, high intelligence often encourages arrogance and an unrealistic assessment of one's capabilities in unfamiliar fields.
Intelligence is like counter-terrorism: one must get it right all the time or instead be reminded of his limitations.
Just out of Curiosity, Why are we having to make our A-Levels easier in this country. If it's so that every one can get them it makes them worthless.
Anonymous, educational institutions are a business. They have bills to pay, payrolls to meet, benefits to fund. The more customers (students) that they have, the more money they make.
