What are your opinions on whether the following statements are true:
1. O-level grades should still be detailed on the CV of a 36 year old fresh MBA grad. They were harder than GCSEs and will be respected by recruiters as such.
2. A-Levels in 1988 were harder than A-Levels now. A-level grades of ABC in 1988 are sufficient to pass the screening of those companies that feel they are still important.
3. If there were extenuating circumstances for the C grade (eg the teacher taught the wrong paper and promptly resigned) it would only look stupid to mention them.
Many thanks for your opinions!
