    People will get positively repped for saying not very confident, but people will get negatively repped for being confident!

    So, I am very confident!!

    I was, but now it's been announced that the government have asked exam boards to lower the number of people getting A's, and in particular A*'s, I am less so.

    IMO A's are the not the hard thing to get but the A* is a whole step up from an A, an A requires a average amount of revision but to get an A* real effort is needed and you have to be quite intelligent to begin with to be capable of getting an A*

    Not gonna lie, my physics teacher, who also advises people on their uni choices. She is extremely well informed, and judging by our colleges performance this year compared to last year, I'm gonna take her word for it!

    The people who are most confident that they can get an A* are probably the least likely to get it.
