I'd propose GCSE's being split up into 2 years- for example the "key" subjects as they were known as when I was in education- Maths, English, Science in the final year as that is what most colleges tend to look for should they be going to one.

Yes, she had a good run. Misba seems likeable too - maybe she'll get a good go at it too.
Quite possibly- I did find the fact that she was a bit unsure what to do for a moment as Kerry reached out to shake her hand quite amusing :)

Sad to see Kerry go out today as she provided us with some close games that made for very good viewing + she came across very well. 5 wins got a similarly likeable contestant Jan Pask a place in the finals- would not be out of question/one can hope that she can squeeze in :)

I've said this a few times this week about players like Adam and Jimmy, but Kerry seems like the consistent type to win a few more. Does not strike me as octochamp material as it stands, but 109 is a very nice score to debut on nevertheless, and it was a good game to watch!

So, it's D-Day for Brendan. Can he do 8? Smart money says so imo. But maybe he will pull a Bob and crash out on game 8- if so, will he steal Dougie Mackay's short-lived crown as having the highest total for a 7-win player- Will only take him about 75 to get over 800 though....
