    It has a 46.2% percentage of students achieveing A*/A. How does that compare to the national average?
    My old school achieved a 48% pass rate at GCSE compared to the national average of 68.1 % (I believe). Do all universities have a flag system in place?

    EDIT: By 93% I meant A*-C percentage
    lol, that is le amazing

    I told myself I was gonna go over moles for chemistry, and re-read my triple science book in order to refresh my memory of science. It didn't happen. Instead; I've been begging my mum to stay a little longer in the stationery section of each shop, to no avail. Going on Wednesday! :eek3::eek4::eek3:

    Your college is doing really well-A*C pass rate is 77.2% nationally and the A*-A pass rate is 26.3% nationally.I am going to make some predictions on the A-Level results in 2015(our year group)-A*(5%) A(17%) B(26.8%) C(24.8%) D(14.9%) E(6.6%).

    Your school has 2% more achieving Academic A Levels than Techno836-the subjects that really matter to Universities so its doing better than Techno836's school.

    It seems to be doing quite bad everywhere else though.. Apart from achieving the English Baccalaureate.. a whole 9% more! I think that's down to the fact that my school made a really big thing about it, and made sure that there was a humanity and language in every option block.

    Is another language GCSE even worth it because I'm kinda interested in doing one.

    I'm doing another 2 language gcses because really..... i love languages and its something i'd want to do at uni, i'd say do them if you're really organised and passionate or if it complements with your subjetcs but it really does depend on your time management as you need to prioritise your a-levels

    I am! Shamefully. It only makes me mad, especially in the latter stages of the competition. I don't know why I put myself through it.
