    I remember a student ambassador at Oxford saying that 6 A*s is the average for successful candidates.

    That sure is a lot of A*s :3 you're so smart!!!!!

    ...does that help?
    im not specfiaclly being rude to you, but knowing the average A*s to get into oxbride dosen't make a difference, as im going to get A*s in all my subjects hopefully

    And yet you say:

    really I don't think its that good especially that annoying B grade. and the grades aren't good enough to get me into oxbridge

    The only grades you could've been referring to were your 9 A*s. I mean...I just don't understand what you're saying...Maybe your train of thought is beyond mine =3=

    I'll get

    Physics A
    Biology A*
    Chemistry A/B
    Maths A
    English Language B
    English Literature C
    German A
    Business Studies A
    ICT B
    R.E B

    Just didn't spend enough time revising. Honestly. I'd be happy with 4 Bs and 5Cs. Because that's all I need to get back into school. I know my capabilities and I don't regret not wasting another month of my life just to scrape out another A or A* when it isn't necessary at all. Plus the weather has been phenomenal.
