    Computing - got an A so a big improvement on the F I got in the mock!

    Also maths, ruled out getting an A after I saw the grade boundaries, but I got one! somehow!!

    and R.E - got E's in every other exam but managed an A!!
    I got an A in maths too, I was shocked because it was 140 for an A

    Yes! didn't expect to pass 2 certain ones and didn't expect any A grades.

    Thought I was reading it wrong when I opened it!

    I got an A* in my English language which was never expected as I've always had B's in the mocks! I also had 97/100 UMS in my second RS exam which I didn't revise for

    Well done everyone! Tbh I was surprised by all of mine- I think the universe was on my side for once lol. I'm most surprised about music though. My teachers spent the whole year telling me I wasn't going to get anything above a D, and yet I got an A! Feels pretty good ngl :aetsch:

    Different approach here, I'm surprised I only got a C in drama. And as horrible as it is; I blame my teacher. She favourited about 5 students and those students always got the most practice to explore drama and play main roles. Everybody else was cast aside and not given the light of day. I wish she had treated us all as equals and let us come out of our cage more, if we weren't good enough, tough. We wouldn't receive enough help to succeed. I truly believe I deserved a B and I'm so bummed out that I didn't get it.

    Further Additional Science.

    I've been predicted a B throughout my GCSE years, and achieved an A in core science but still worked at a B standard (apparently). I revised the hell out of Biology Unit 3, less on Chemistry Unit 3 and almost to nothing on Physics Unit 3. Exams went reasonably alright, predicting an A in biology, a B in chemistry and a low B/ C in chemistry. Much to my surprise, the only A* I get is for Further Additional Science.

    I get you on so many levels.
    I was expecting an A for RE, turns out I got a C.
    My English teacher favourited a lot of students as well, but what's done is done.
