'History A-Level to become 'a thing of the past'". Isn't that the point?
Elaine O'Neill, Nottingham, England

Erm, surely my mate who was an extra in Pearl Harbor (sic) is the best value ever according to this method of measurement. That film took over £150m worldwide and yet he can only have been paid about £150 - not sure how many sandwiches and cokes he managed to put away. I make that £1m return on every £1 invested.
John Coulthard, Bath, UK

Dinosaurs given protected status? Bit late now, isn't it?
Adrian Jones, Edgware, United Kingdom

Doherty 'faces Jail' over drugs. Hmm surely something we knew last week/year.
Edenzor, Reading

Regarding the Lilly Allen story. We're told: "She was detained for five hours but not strip searched. Understandably she was upset by it." - was she upset about not being strip searched?

Colin Main (Monday's letters): The UK is indeed Great Britain and Northern Ireland. 'Britain' (without the 'Great') is synonymous with the United Kingdom, so does include Northern Ireland. An uncommon grasp of subtlety from the EU?
Nick, Cromer

Never mind the "largest exoplanet yet" in the picture here, what do scientists have to say about the giant pair of golden scissors just appearing behind the sun?
David Pegg, Nottingham

A landmark day! On the same day that the 21st World Scout Jamboree closes at Chelmsford, I get 10 out of 10 on the map symbol quiz! Scouting Rules!
Howard, London, UK
