    I think it's meant to be between a GCSE and an AS level

    All the top set at our school were allowed to do it, but most people dropped out and now I think there are less than 10 left

    We had one lesson where 5 people just stood up and walked out at the same time :giggle:

    No we have to do that as well this summer...

    Our classes are split so half are normal maths and half are additional maths, but we finished the syllabus for GCSE maths a while ago so we just do past papers now!

    1 A*
    4 A
    4 B
    3 C

    Actually, I don't think my results would have been much better if I had taken less. I don't see many people who have taken as many as I have often though. Not sure why I did so many.
