Nah she was applying to Birmingham she was just a cow lol, don't just make assumptions to justify some randomers sh*tty behaviour. And yeah the people who got U's probably should've worked harder but it doesn't justify her rubbing it in their faces.(Original post by BioStudentx)
the girl going over 90% was a possible Cambridge applicant. And yes, if they'd worked harder they wouldn't have got Us. It's amusing how they're offended at other people being upset over their grades when people with Us hardly revise. Surely the person who put in more blood, sweat and tears has more of a right to be upset?
A*/A grade - is it okay to be dissapointed? Watch

It's not wrong. The principle of very working hard for something and in the end not being able to achieve it is disappointing, despite the grade you got anyway still being very good. I completely understand why people are disappointed if it's what they worked very hard for, as long as they're still happy and recognise that an A is a very good grade.
I would however recommend not sharing your disappointment with other people, as it can make other people feel worse about their own grades and its generally not something people like to hear. Keep it to yourself

It's perfectly fine to be disappointed with it. You were aiming for a certain grade and you didn't obtain it - naturally you will be somewhat disappointed. However portraying this disappointment as if it is the worst thing that happened probably isn't the best thing to do. A lot of people would be very happy with an A and for someone to be disappointed with it, they may feel stupid by the fact they can't even get a grade that someone thinks is bad (which obviously is not true)
So it's fine to be disappointed, in fact it's a good thing because it means you aim very highly, just don't publicly display this disappointment.

This may sound snooty and seem unappreciative and think I'm up myself, but is it okay to be disappointed in an A grade instead of an A*? I know if I got an A I would be proud and I know it's a great grade, but I'm such a perfectionist and I know that I am able to get the A* grade due to previous mocks. I've put so much work in so to get an A (in certain subjects at least) would feel disappointing and though I haven't done what I knkw I can. Is it okay to be disappointed or am I just being annoying and rude?
but it's okay to be disappointed! especially when it's a bullsh*t paper/grade boundary that invalidated your hard work. i'm doing better with my grades now and i'm disappointed when i don't get the highest mark i think i'm able to get.
i think it's just a case on who you express it in front of whether it's being rude/it's accepted. but don't avoid the disappointment! you can only improve if you acknowledge that you can do better.Last edited by mythical.6; 25-08-2016 at 02:05. Reason: forgot i'd get censored woooops

I don't think it's wrong at all!
I sound very much like you- a perfectionist who knows they are capable of A*s. People have the right to be upset with them selves regardless of that grade or percentage they get. Everyone has their own expectations of themselves; some may just want a C while others strive for 90%/95% on everything. Just because you get an A doesn't mean you lose the right to be disappointed!
As for people saying that some would love to get all As that's true, but there are also people who would love to get all Cs or all Ds. You are always going to get people who would be happy to have your grades irrelevant of what they are!!
Anyway good luck!! I'm sure you've got your A*s!!

It is absolutely okay to be disappointed. I certainly am. You didn't get the grade you were hoping for/expecting and worked damn hard for. How can you not be disappointed?
