    People like me and you can get those grades, but that's because we don't have limits. Don't underestimate how stupid the average person is, and those people have limits.

    I used to think anyone could get A*s because I got them so easily. Now I realise that lesser mortals are simply not able to do this.

    The arrogance in this thread is strong.

    Sometimes certain people, myself admittedly, just aren't able to get A*'s in our A-levels. No matter how long or hard we revise. You've got to accept that it isn't as easy as "just try harder". I would've thought that a straight A* student would know that.

    Also, acting all high and mighty about your academic successes isn't going to get you liked by many.

    Wow OP you inspire me, most people around our age just settle for a normal job and don't want to chase their dreams, they need to try harder and believe that they can do it.

    I'd like to be an actor, I think it'd be amazing, to be able to play so many different people, you get to act the lives of people you wouldn't think of. There is so many opportunities if you are known, like going into fashion etc. I'd want to start my own business as well as I feel that gives you freedom in a way, I also find law really interesting, but the physical side of things.

    Do you? You have 'got to accept' failure? Do you really?

    This sentence sums up your problems nicely.

    And no, I am not an A* start student- yet. However, rest assured I will be by the time my Alevels are finished. Why? Because I believe I will get that. If I don't believe it, then it's definitely not going to happen. So why wouldn't I believe it?

    Sorry but since when did you accept defeat? Did Edison say that at his 10000th attempt at creating the first working light bulb? No, most certainly not.


    "Young man, why would I feel like a failure? And why would I ever give up? I now know definitively over 9,000 ways that an electric light bulb will not work. Success is almost in my grasp." - Thomas Edison

    So you are telling me after..I'll assume.. 10 exams? That you can't get an A* grade?

    No, after 50,000 exams there will be some things that I just can't understand. End of.

    May I ask why you are so adamant in getting the top marks? I know you'll answer with "because I know I can...if I believe..." or something similar.

    I aspire to join the Armed Forces, Corps of Royal Engineers to be exact. I do not need the top marks in everything to achieve this ambition. But I will give 110% to do the best job I can if i do get in.

    There is a difference between pessimism and realism. And as for my attitude, that's your opinion; and whilst I respect it, I sure as hell do not have to listen to it.

    I think it'll remain a pipe dream but one day, after I've graduated, worked a job in the civil service, got married, had babies etc, I'd really love to open a cute coffee shop. I'd turn it into one of those places that have been open for 100 years, with a really nice homely feel to it, known for making delicious cakes and pastries with secret recipes, great coffee, etc. I wouldn't expand it either, I'd be happy just keeping that one special little shop. I love baking. Ah it'd be awesome. :daydreaming:

    I am afraid your attitude and view on life in general is rather skewed if you think that
