He can help him by telling Will some rules, and what to expect. So Will doesn't go in completely blind like Harry did. Remember Harry's shock at clothes thing? Harry can teach Will different things like that.

Prince William Portrait to be sold

From the Daily mail

Prince William portrait to fetch £100,000

The only life portrait of Prince William is to go on sale this week. The rare study of the second-in-line to the throne when he was 17 was painted by artist John Wonnacott in preparation for a group picture of the royal family to celebrate the late Queen Mother's 100th birthday.


It will be put on public display for the first time on Wednesday at Agnew's gallery in Mayfair, London, alongside Wonnacott's other preliminary works. Two pictures of the Queen Mother and one of the six royals in the final image - the Queen, the Queen Mother, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales and Princes William and Harry - will also be available for collectors to buy.

There is no way to truly compare the the American degrees to the Scottish or English counterparts. This is because the pupil usually just studies a Degree Course ie History so unless the pupil decides to take a few courses out side of the degree they become an expert in that subject.

Ah I see - I misunderstood! My modules work as follows:
Each year you have to take 120 'CATS' with each module being worth a varying amount of CATS - in Computer Science usually 6 or 12 and in Engineering usually 7.5 or 15 at my university, though arts modules tend to be 24 or 30 CATS so they only study around 4 modules a year. You can choose to do slightly more than 120 CATS if you want (e.g. I'm doing 139.5 CATS this year across 12 modules) to enable you to take slightly more broad options. For each course in each year, there are certain 'core' modules which you have to take and then approved option modules which you can make up the rest of your CATS from. Alternatively, if there is a module in another department that you'd like to take, you can apply to do it as an 'unusual option' and usually if you have the requisite knowledge and a good reason for doing it ("it's easy" doesn't cut it ) then they'll let you.
A 4th year student "Arthur" takes a 40 CATS Modules Disseration. How would get up to the 120 CATS Modules would he havr to take? This is what I was gettting at. Are "Subjects" different then the CATS modules?
This is how is t is set up at St Andrews whrer Prince William attend

If you use a 4.00 GPA and just coverted it the his GPA would have been 2.40 to 2.76. However the work that he had to do included all wriiten essays exams and and 50,000 word dissertation in both 3rd Year (Junior year in the USA) and another dissertation of equal size in 4th year ( Senior Year in the USA). In most ot the courses that he took the Course work was either33% or 40% of the final mark and the exams at the end of each unit and or the term were 60 or 67% of the final mark.

I saw the whole painting (with the family group) and I think it's quite good. It's kind of moody, but he's looking down at the Queen Mother. IMO it's the artist's way of showing William contemplating the past and his own future.

I think Wikipedia gives a great definition. "Upper Second Class Honours (2:1) "

Spam's canned as William ploughs a familiar furrow
By Katie Nicholl, Mail on Sunday. Sept 25 2005.. edited

Prince William has agreed to do the land management part of his 'work
experience' on his father's Duchy Estate and will start next week. The
23-year-old Prince, who will also enjoy a stint in the City before
going to Sandhurst next year, had seriously considered working for
Lord 'Spam' Vestey and even visited his 6,000-acre Stowell Park estate
in Gloucestershire earlier this year, say Royal insiders.

I think it's unjust to convert to GPA like that, because in the American system you can have a GPA of 4 but in the British system you can't never ever have full grade. The maximum is 80% I think and it's very rare. So I would say his GPA was rather something like 3-3.5.

Thanks for the contributions and explanations about William's course everyone.

Now I think it an appropriate time to move on to other discussions lest we get stuck in the GPA groove.

William down on the farm

PRINCE William is off to work on his dad’s farm.


The Prince will study land management on the Duchy of Cornwall estate. Before Wills, 23, goes to Sandhurst in January, he will also work in the City of London and join a mountain rescue team.

He said: “The placements will give me hands-on experience.”

The way I figureed it was to just take the precentage 0.60*4.0 to 0.69*4.0. I believe that what I said it was most likely higher ot atleast I ment to say that.

FARMER PRINCE
PRINCE William began his working life yesterday - as a farmer.

Wills is learning how to run his father's Duchy of Cornwall estate in Gloucestershire.

The move was the first step towards a career in countryside management which the 23-year-old heir to the throne intends to follow.

A royal aide said: "William has done his first day's work and he loved it.

"He has a passion for the countryside and it's not unfair to call him the farmer prince

William's portrait sold

William's £100,000 portrait sold on day one


The only life portrait of Prince William, which went on sale today, has been snapped up already by a mystery buyer.


An as yet unnamed collector reserved the painting at the £100,000 asking price at the start of the week following publicity about the historic image. Showing a 17-year-old William in Eton dress, the 3ft by 4ft oil on canvas piece was painted by John Wonnacott in preparation for a group picture of the royal family to celebrate the late Queen Mother's 100th birthday.
