Two notebooks from 1967 (lower sixth) are extant in pure and applied mathematics, and I have posted one in two parts on this blog (following messages). I completed the whole course in one year and obtained a B grade (next to the best A grade). The intention was to make way for pure mathematics, which I did on my own in 1968 in the upper sixth, without teachers. So I have two A level certificates: one in pure and applied mathematics, and one in pure mathematics. The standard is about the same as a master’s course at UNCC, so the education then was a lot superior. There are some tough problems, and all had to be done without any computers, resulting in a genuine grasp of mathematics. There are the usual ten out of ten, but some difficulty with the later problems, probably because I was doing the two year course in one year. I was a Prefect because of my school prize for best O level results.
