    Wrong... If you put in the effort there's no reason why you can't do it.
    I not saying they can't do it without effort, it just depends on why they achieved low GCSE grades. A grade B at GCSE does not tend to translate to a B or a C at A levels statistically, I know many people who achieved A* maths GCSE and then achieved, Cs and Ds.

    Yeah cause they were over confident and didn't work hard enough, that's all it is. It's possible..

    I agree, you find that a substantial number of students in year 12 will do near on no work for the first term and spend the whole weekends partying and not doing work.
