Sir: Further to Professor N. Kurti's comments (31 August) on A-levels, when I left my Scottish school at 18 in 1961, I had five 'Highers': in English (language and literature), mathematics, German, history and science (chemistry and physics). I continued to the Arts Faculty at Glasgow University. I could just as easily entered the Science Faculty had I wished.

Yours faithfully,

P. J. P. THOMASSON
