UI design suggestion

When using drop-down lists it’s not always a good idea to preselect something. Why? Because someone will forget to change the default selection and you will get the preselected item, usually the first one in alphabetical order. Do you want an example? Look at my IELTS certificate:

  1. Yah, sorry about that. I was but a young graduate trainee when we wrote that particular software. Ah, the glory days of Delphi 3. (Wow! 32 bits!)

    I’m personally not responsible for the drop-down feature: I think it was a colleague who did IELTS – I did the BULATS admin software IIRC. It probably has the same flaws (-:
