They're a vaguely good way of tracking your progress.

If it helps, I'm old (November) and I took my year 9 SATs in year 2 and did very well thank you very much, but only got 4 A* and one A at A level so...I'm getting worse and worse all the time At least the young'uns are improving when it matters. :yep:

:O:O you took your year 9 sats when you where in year 2, so you were like?? 6 or something?

Godd I hope I can get better A-Levels than I did at GCSE. I got A*Core science, a bunch of ethics and multiple choice questions lol. then I got AAAAAABB the B's were for maths and french. But I got an A for German which should have been an A* but the school ****ed it up. And french I bet I was like 2 UMS off or something.

GCSE I got AAABBBBBBBE but AS I got AAAC.
I tried to work really hard for my GCSEs but that didnt pay off. So I hardly worked at all for my ASs and it paid off. I mean revision... seriously I hardly did any :\ Read over notes for an hour or so before exam. I probably should of done more...

Also, I was born in September

Do you mean second year of secondary school, or actually year 2, because if you were that young and doing that you must of been a genius.

Most universities don't care about what you got for your GCSE's... well apart from English and Maths! Heck I'm off to the University of Nottingham which says quite a lot!! So I guess they don't really care about my GCSE's especially my D in English!

Good luck in becoming a Psychologist anyway

I think he means he got 4 A*s at GCSE, and 1 A at A Level.

I think she means 4A* in her GCSEs (amongst other grades) and 1 A at A Level (again, amongst others).

I was confused by that too, but I assume he means of his GCSEs, there were 4 A*s, and of his A-levels, there was only one A

As for myself, I improved a little from GCSE to A level, as my GCSEs were fairly rubbish. From A* AAAAA BB CC to AABBa (Maths, F. Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Philosophy). Neither set of grades is particularly impressive, but then again, neither is my work ethic.

must HAVE. Sorry to be so pedantic, but that mistake gets to me enormously for some reason. He must HAVE been a genius, not must of.

I guess I did - only got 3A* 7A for GCSE - but got 4A's & 2 AEA Distinctions at A2 - one of the A's was in History which I only got an A for at GCSE... Conversely there were quite a few people at my school that got 6A*s or more and then buggered up their AS and A2s. I suppose it just depends what sort of study you're most suited to - GCSE is just fact learning - and AS and A2 require a bit more analysis and interpretation...
Lucho what are these AEA distinction thingys? I've read about them a few times on TSR but dunno how they work. Is it a separate exam or were you just awarded it for your A2 marks?
