    Most proud of getting an A in English Language paper because I got a C and a D in both of my mocks, but at the same time I'm annoyed that I'm 3 marks away from an A* overall.

    Way back in 2013, I got full UMS in English Lit. I was also rather proud of my Maths as I had full UMS in the exams I'd sat in Year 11 (99 overall).

    History by far. I was getting Ds consecutively all year and in the final exams I got 2 A*s amounting to 92%. I'm still in shock now. Probably dodgy marking

    A in maths, english language and literature.

    Predicted an A in maths (I copied peoples work in class which is why I had a high prediction) But I had 0 hope in myself... In year 9 I literally did not have a maths teacher. My year 10 maths teacher didn't even know I existed. I used to get D's and scraped C's. I learnt all of my maths with my year 11 teacher. Espeically with the high grade boundaries I'm seriously happy it's the first time I've gotten over a B in maths!!!!!!!!!!!!. I should really go back and thank her for getting me so far within just a year. She has pretty much saved my life. I hope she's still around.

    Predicted a C in english. I don't know how I ended up with an A especially after writing the largest amount of bullcrap I've ever read but I'm happy regardless. I wrote about a fricking boxing anime in my language paper. Maybe my examiner watched the same exact anime and gave me an A for being a fellow otaku
