Maths boost is unfair to others

I AM a sixth-year student due to sit my Leaving Certificate in the year 2011 and am studying maths at ordinary level.
I wish to express my anger at the decision to grant 25 additional points to those who pass maths at higher level.
Although it will not affect the students sitting the examinations in summer 2011, I feel that it is grossly unfair to award someone greater points simply because their talents lie in mathematics.
