    These are my own predicted grades and I'm not sure whether they're seen as good or poor grades , like will employers and universities accept them?
    Media studies- A
    Maths- B
    English literature- C/B
    English language-B
    Religious studies-A/B
    Business Btec: D (equivalent to A)
    Computing Btec: D (equivalent to A)
    history-C/B
    Art-C
    science- I know I haven't passed science because I did absolutely terrible in the exam!
    Oh dear. I got all A*s if that helps.

    How does the fact that you got maximum grades in all your GCSE's help a person seeking reassurance about getting B's and C's?

    Little cheeky saying that a Btec is equivalent to an A at GCSE isn't it?

    I think the OP may mean BTEC distinction but I do agree.

    Yeah. Saying a Computing Btec is worth an A when the Computer Science GCSE is much harder (Not too hard, but still harder) is probably a bit insulting and devalues them.

    A BTEC is no where near as rigorous.

    You are welcome to voice your opinion and likewise I am welcome to voice mine. Studenteb3027 doesn't make much sense either.

    Also, you posting your grades and asking for thoughts clearly shows you want feedback, but if you aren't willing to accept comments then please do not post on a public forum.

    I want feedback from what I have asked not unnecessary comments which are completely irrelevant to what I am asking.

    I am giving you feedback, a BTEC certainly isn't as rigorous as a full GCSE.

    Your grades are decent but probably not competitive. Fundamentally AS and A2 will be the most important, though.

    Good luck in your studies.

    Clearly wasn't feedback, you were trying to clearly belittle him, weren't you crazyfool? A Btec Distinction is the same as an A, although it doesn't have the same importance, it still matters #JUANMATA

    I never said it doesn't matter, all I said was that it isn't as rigorous.

    GCSE Computer Science (Although not very difficult) is not even close to BTEC Computing
