    Oh so do you prefer having more exams in Year 10 than Year 11 or would you rather have them all in Year 11?

    If you put the effort in, you can handle everything. Maths is something anyone can achieve if they try hard enough and have enough support. Don't play down your achievements, you've done brilliantly!
    Oh, thanks for the encouragement

    My first post on TSR was on the 20th June 2011 I believe. I've been here over 2 years but I feel that I have had a negative impact here.I looked back at old posts, a few months ago and thought that my comments were far too nice and naive-maybe TSR has turned me into this person completely obsessed with results who classes anything below an A a fail because my posts back then were only a shadow of this.
    Ah, when you put it like that it's seems pitiful


    About feeling like anything below an A is a failure, that probably occurred from expectations you personally inherited from tsr (even though, all round tsr teen geniuses represent, I'd say 5% of all students). In a way not completely your fault...

    But you cannot deny, is that you have control over what you post and what you may call naive or even nice is perceived as bragging in it's rawest form.

    Furthermore, on a pre-results GCSE thread it isn't the wisest thing to reveal, right?

    I don't believe you're a mean person but I believe it's your responsibility to control what you post and the same applies for every person

    I'm predicted 5A*s, 5As and a B, and I'm one of the high achievers at school! Now I'm on here and people are saying their 'worst case scenario' is 8A*s and not the 12 they're predicted!!

    Definitely Year 10 because it takes the workload off in Year 11. I got a B in Physics and a C in an English Language exam but because this was Year 10 I did resits in Jan 2013 and got an A* in Physics and an A in English.

    Whats everyone doing after they get their results? (to celebrate or to cheer yourself up lol)
    I haven't got anything planned! Hopefully I'll just catch a few people in school and go into town with them afterwards for a bit, but nothing more than that I imagine. I know of people who get massive rewards for their grades though, like £100 per A or A*!

    I have a question.

    For the chemistry GCSE there are 4 units which compose of 3 exams and 1 controlled assessment.

    One of the exams I did in march was 70/80 but I then resat that in June and I'm still waiting for the result. Suppose they cash in the one in march but the June one was higher, what do I do then?

    I had 7 exams in Summer 2010 and 8 exams in Summer 2011 and would have had less exams this summer had I not have opted for an optional extra GCSE or rather IGCSE in Further Maths with AQA, which I did in 1 hour of leftover English time because I finished English Language a year early with an A* in English Language, only 3.4% achieved this in the year I completed the course and I was in Year 10 and an A* in English Literature.

    In Summer Year 10 I took 3 exams in Core Science,1 exam in English Literature, 1 RE exam,1 Geography exam and 1 Maths exam.

    This Summer I have took 2 exams in French, 2 exams in Further Maths, 1 exam in Geography, 1 exam in RE, 1 exam in Maths and 1 exam in Additional Science.
    Wow! You're a genius o.o I wish my school would push students further. The teachers focus more on the dumb kids who don't even care about grades, so us that do, end up having to do a lot of the work ourselves.
    Congratulations on those grades, by the way! What do you plan on doing in uni?

    I've seen that, one person at my school even got like £100+ for FAILING a re sit!! :eek::rolleyes:

    My parents did promise me some cash once I had all my GCSEs done, but I'm not expecting anywhere near what I've seen some people expect!

    Seriously? That's idiotic. I know I might get negged for this, but I think some people and schools take the whole "you tried your best" attitude too far. They leave out the top end students because they focus so much on trying to reward and encourage the lower end students who, often, don't care. Key word being "often" there, as many of them do care.

    I'll be lucky to get anything about say £100 for all my grades combined.

    I passed but went to my local school (worst in the city which is 2nd worst for education). I don't regret it at all.
