New PDF release: CP Violation in {B_s}^0 -> J/psi.phi Decays: Measured

This thesis experiences at the ultimate size of the flavor-mixing section in decays of strange-bottom mesons (B_s) into J/psi and phi mesons played in high-energy proton-antiproton collisions recorded via the Collider scan at Fermilab. Interference happens among direct decays and decays following digital particle-antiparticle transitions (B_s-antiB_s).

These papers are optional, and it is considered normal to take them in only one subject, two being the maximum permitted. Not all Special papers are marked. As already stated, "A" 52 THE GENERAL CERTIFICATE OF EDUCATION level results now come in five grades of pass, and only those with an A, Β or C grade in a subject have their "S" papers in that subject marked. The Special papers themselves are divided into three categories—"distinction" (Grade 1), "merit" (Grade 2), and "unclassified" (U). Only about 15 per cent of all candidates can expect to obtain either a distinction or a merit classification.

The Council proposed the replacement of the School and Higher School Certificates by the "General Certificate of Edu­ cation", to be taken at three levels—Ordinary, Advanced, and Scholarship. They would clearly have liked to abolish all external examinations except those taken at about 18, but felt unable to do so because so many professions admitted entrants at 16 on the basis of performance in such an examination. They therefore restricted the examination to children of 16 years of age, pro­ posed that the pass level should be the equivalent of a credit in the School Certificate and Matriculation examinations, and expressed the hope that ultimately the professions would admit entrants at an age later than 16.
