Are A-levels considered university preparatory?

Have you read Harry Potter?

Remember OWLs and NEWTs.

They are sort of based on the idea of A and O levels.

At the end of compulsory years of school students sat O levels when Diana was at school. I believe they are now called GCSEs. These are externally set and marked nationwide exams. William has about 12 of them. They can sit one or more earlier than others as well.


In the last couple of years of school students choose what to study and sit nationwide exams in these subjects. William did History of Art, Geography and at least one other subject if my memory serves me correctly. These are called A levels.

The number and grade of the A levels determines, for most people, what uni and what course a student is eligible to undertake. They may also be used by other institutions to determine entry.

Harry did a couple of A levels and got a D for one of them - indicating a pass but not a strong pass. I think Eugenie has the most A's of the royals.

Diana didn't get any O levels, which indicates a poor academic achievement. She herself admitted that she wasn't very bright and that is what that indicates. She was street smart (she could read people) but not academically smart.

Didn't notice that in Harry Potter, wasn't a great fan of those books in any case (sorry!).

Yes, I knew that the end result was that, in the USA we would have said that Diana didn't graduate high school and wouldn't be going on to higher education. Another missed opportunity for this young lady (I wouldn't have tolerated that from my teenager).

I've wondered sometimes whether Diana had an attention-deficit problem. Patrick Jephson said that she had trouble concentrating during meetings, and she was also known to have a high level of energy well into her adult years.

I love these two covers.Magazines without Diana have no so much interest.It was always a pleasure to see her so elegant and kind.
Princess Grace and Princess Diana in the cover together is great,as they had many things in common,pretty ,elegant,fairytale princesses,icons of fashion,who died young in a car accident...
In the last cover she is specially pretty.Diana was beautiful inside and outside.Thanks maryamj
I like specially these two covers,I like the hat in the first one ,and the pink dress in the second.Thanks dear maryamj

Of all the magazine covers featuring Princess Diana, I love the ones in which she's wearing a tiara, especially on her wedding day but I hate those where she's wearing ugly waterproofs because nobody looks attractive in them. Hideous and most unprincess-like IMHO.

A Preview of Harper’s Bazaar’s ‘Best Covers’ Issue
A tribute issue dedicated to Diana, Princess of Wales featured intimate images by Patrick Demarchelier, who had shot Diana two years earlier for a different cover.

Hmm, the dress looks OK but I'm not too keen on the hairstyle because it looks as though Diana has just got out of the shower and straight into her dress.

She sure did... though I do not think of her as a celebrity. She was a humanitarian.
