    I can understand being annoyed that you narrowly missed an A* but in absolute terms your grades are outstanding. So if you are fishing for compliments then you have one, if not then chin up.
    What would he be doing BESIDES fishing for compliments?

    No idea, just accommodating the possibility.

    Why does OP have to be a troll or fishing for compliments? Everyone has their own idea of good and if, say, OP was expecting A*A*A* then A*AA would be a disappointment, especially with one of them being close to an A*. I understand OP... in a similar situation to you, just got the minimum to meet my firm, literally 2 UMS off A* in F.Maths, and 70% of people have 2 or more A*s at my uni - so I'll be the 30% which doesn't :rolleyes: There's nothing you can really do about it now though, if you're going to uni just try to do the best you can. (Besides, A*AA isn't actually bad)
    Thank you. I was predicted A*A*A, so of course I am disappointed that I missed the second A*. I do, admittedly, go to a grammar school, so perhaps the results there aren't representative. On the other hand, I do know people from other local schools that received pretty much the same grades as me.

    I'm not sure why people think I am a troll, I'm not

    A*AA just seems SO unimpressive now. Tom Daley got the same, and he spends all his time diving. :facepalm2:

    Erm, why would I be fishing for compliments when I've acknowledged that A*AA isn't that good?

    Everyone I know got between AAA - A*A*A*. So A*AA is very much average

    No offence OP, but I got four A*s in my A levels, but not everyone can do great I suppose. And no, I'm not joking or lying.

    Average??

    Have you even seen the statistics? 3% of A level students achieve AAA or better...A*AA is obviously even less. TSR is just a massive distortion of reality; you won't find someone on here who doesn't care about their academic attainment.

    If you took your A*AA grades and took it to any normal school such as mine, you'd be strapped in a chair and tortured until you told them how you managed to get A*AA. The average at AS for my school this year was roughly BBCD. I'm guessing it was ABB average at A2.
    Well done on the grades though, but posting about them can always be a dangerous thing, as it can come across different ways to different people on TSR.

    3 UMS of A* FM here. Made my firm, but still galling.

    Tom Daley's A* was in photography though, so I wouldn't say it's the same.

    Wow, this is like talking to a brick wall.

    Again you said AAA* isn't that good. In your OP you said it is ''so average'' :rolleyes:

    THAT is why you're getting negged as hell.

    (HINT: They are great grades. Got it now?)

    Nah I agree with you, those results are average. If I'm honest they're quite bad but you should be proud for being brave enough to tell everyone these embarrassing grades.....

    I think your results are very good but please don't throw them away like most people do. Do something with them and use them to improve your life! You are obviously very intelligent so don't go down the path that other people go down and do stupid stuff that will ruin your intelligence.

    Don't do what other people do by throwing those great results down the drain. Make something of yourself! Good luck.

    Hi, sorry to bring up an old thread, I'm just curious about which uni you go to? 70% with A*A*A seems so competitive! Please tell me it's not UCL or Durham, otherwise I'm screwed!

    Well they're definitely above average, but if you were expecting 3 A* I can see why you would be dissapointed

    Imperial (Physics). Our year had the best a-level results they ever had though so it's not like everyone here is a complete genius
