I would have (strongly) though that the grades peole have actually lead, in the past, is by far the best indication of their true ability, and requires no judgement (assuming its all been recored in ticks in the guide) than what grade they may desire to lead. And that over time such tick marks ahve taken all the various factors into account.

But maybe i have missed the point your trying to make..

Cheers

At least the grade ranges in this poll (13-15 vs 13-20) are far more revealing.
