    Took GCSE Mandarin early- got an A* but if I found that difficult, how would I cope with 10 other subjects with a harder grade system?

    That's right
    Wow good luck! I happen to want to do medicine too! Keep in touch man

    Actual Results: 9A/A*s (5A*s and 4As) 1B

    English Langauge: A happy cos exam went horrendously
    English Literature:A* thought I would get an A maximum
    Maths: A very disappointed
    Core Science: A*
    Additional Science: A could have worked harder for this one
    Religious Studies: A* shocked
    Geography: A* shocked
    Resistant Materials: A* shocked
