This article is absolutely rubbish, and saying that the entry requirements at Imperial College are the 'highest in UK' is one of the most ridiculous things I've ever read. As Rupert said, STEP is so much harder than A level that it isn't even comparable, and achieving a 1 in STEP II and 1 in STEP III, or occasionally higher, as required for admission for maths at Cambridge, makes achieving an extra A* at A level almost insignificant.
