    I doubt you could do much with straight Cs at A Level.
    Anything lower than C is useless in my opinion.

    Well if anything lower than a C is useless why do you think a C is good? A B could be considered good at a stretch.

    Silly question. Depends who you are. Virtually no one would be disappointed with AAA, no matter who they are, so they cannot be considered bad. Some people would be ecstatic with ABB or BBB, some would be disappointed with AAA. It depends on your own expectations.
    Sorry, AAA would be a disaster.

    I'm not sure exactly which point of mine you are disagreeing with. I said virtually no one. And why, exactly, would AAA be such a disaster for you?

    No A*s. With grade inflation, A* is the new A.

    So? Who really cares? A levels are just a means to an end

    Good A-level results are results which enable you to apply to the university and degree you want to.

    Tbh id be pretty disappointed with aaaa, considering my probable firm choices are A*A*A or A*AA. also personally, i feel i am easily capable of 4 A*s, i know that sounds arrogant but thats honestly how i feel so i would be disappointed if i didnt achieve what i thought i was capable of.

    To each their own. Im sure i suck at something (many things probably) that you guys excel at.

    It depends from person to person. I'd say CCC was better than A*A*A* if the person who got CCC worked their ass off while the other did nothing

    Yeah I guess everyone's got different capabilities, as for me, I know AAA is out of my league, let alone A*s

    Good is a generic term Einstein. I also said in my opinion. DEU are not good grades. C in maths physics biology still good. I also meant if three grades lower than c for example DDD

    i dono...if the other did nothing, that shows their fairly bright and efficient in terms of picking everything up in class. i got 5 A's in AS with fairly minimal effort tbh. Whats the point in working your butt off to get the same grades that you would get with a decent amount of work

    Anything above BBB is a good achievement. It depends on the subjects of course. I went to an average school and an average college and I am one of only about 15 people from my year to go to a Russell Group uni (out of 260) so my AAB is actually fantastic considering.

    Umm, great, good and bad are all generic words, what are you talking about Einstein? I think the word you're looking for is okay/not bad, not good since good is a positive word, ****.
