    Looking forward to publishing the responses! Do I do it at 100 or leave it until I've finished all my homework?

    I'd say give it an hour or so? So everyone has a chance to answer, but I don't know, it's your choice in the end

    I would be tempted to say to wait until late tonight or even tomorrow for publishing the results. The more surveys you have completed, the more meaningful the results are.

    Also, I would like to see 'the average person on TSR has x number of A*s, etc', like a median of the results or something. That'd be interesting.

    Hope people haven't lied, that would just ruin the results.

    True, although it will get to a point where more surveys will have little difference.

    I'll leave it until around 10pm ish.

    Okay, I'm only able to collect 100 responses because I don't have a 'pro' account.

    Unless TSR towers are willing to pay expenses hahaha

    This is actually quite interesting! Didn't expect there to be so many people who go to comprehensive schools if I'm honest...
    I hope the other people answering this were honest.

    This is so interesting. Whilst the A* percentage doesn't surprise me (it is TSR after all), the comprehensive percentage does surprise me. Thanks for compiling this survey!

    Not surprising at all TSR grades are very inflated indeed.

    THIS IS VERY TENOUS BUT I'D SAY IT'S FAIRLY ACCURATE

    The average GCSE pupil on TSR will have 4A*s, 3As, 2Bs and 1C

    The average AS pupil on TSR will have AABB

    The average A2 pupil on TSR will have A*AA
