    Got a U in C3, resat got an A. Got a U in C4 too that year.. and a D in mechanics. I had no motivation, even found myself making excuses to leave lessons early :/
    Got a D in my chemistry this January too.. Resitting that and will probably do no better. Chemistry is the anti-rob. Welll it is when you've no motivation. Had my fair share of As/A*s (couple of 100%s too somehow!) to balance it out though I really should avoid subjects I dislike with a passion

    I got an E in the Ethics side of my Philosophy and Ethics mock. Predicted an A :p: My teacher was aghast. Just took the real exam last Thursday and actually revised. It better not be another E :rant:

    I got an E in AS Latin translation. I learnt as many words as I could and made up the grammar as I went along.

    The worst I've ever done was getting a C in an AS Critical Thinking exam. I considered retaking it, but eventually decided I didn't give a damn.

    That sounds a lot like my GCSE arabic, learned as many words as i could the night before..and when I did write sentences I wrote all the words in the wrong order..
    I say wrong order, but it felt right to me at the time

    LORD KNOWS HOW I EVEN GOT A D

    Yeah that sounds a lot like what I was doing. I also got a D overall when my other papers were taken into account.

    Same. Although I could still consider it some sort of accomplishment, a C was the highest grade achieved in the subject throughout my sixth.

    Got 43% in a practice S1 paper once.
    Though I had only joined the class a week or two previously so I hadn't covered a lot of the material. Plus it was mostly on venn diagrams which I loath with the passion of a thousand jihadists.

    If you were anywhere near being factually correct then I might defend my post. But as your evaluation of my post was about as accurate as my cricket bowling I shall not bother.
