For those hoping to take courses with near maximum points, most will probably be taking honours maths anyway. From what I hear, honours maths as a subject takes up twice as much study time as any other honours subject so maybe it´s fair but we won´t really know until we see how it effects cao offers next year.

I´m thinking that for courses with near maximum points, those doing 6 Honours subjects but Ordinary Level Maths, will really be up against it. I really don´t think that is fair. I can see that it is an incentive to get pupils to take Higher Level Maths but why do it for Maths only?
