    It was really hard! But hopefully that means the grade boundaries will be really low too

    Aaaand of course, I end up with contradicting answers ;u;.
    Certificates? Is that what the piece of paper is called? We weren't given any notice telling us that this was something we had to keep. I would've thought if they were like official final results shouldn't we be given some sort of warning telling us to look after the results or something?
    We'd seriously have to go back to the exam board?
    IthinkmaybeI'lljustignorethemthe ydon'tmatternextyearanyway ; ;

    Or is a certificate something separate like, for individual subjects that we do, because I didn't receive that, only a piece of paper telling me my two grades from year 10 and all that info.
    Well, it's kind of assumed that you'd have the sense to keep public examination and qualification information safe, but maybe different schools stress the importance of GCSEs to different levels? The way mine approach them is as if they're as important as a levels, I don't know if yours treats them more like SATs.

    You can find the information on the exam boards website or with a quick google, but the process isn't actually that bad. You really should try and get/find the replacement certificates, especially for a subject like English which along with maths is one of the only gcses employers may actually care about. You never know when you'll need proof of you holding the qualification, could be when you're applying to sixth form, could be in 20 years time trying to change careers. The longer you wait the harder it gets, though.

    Slightly worried about english language. For the writing section, I ended up writing a full page of my answer to q6 on the page I'd left for q5. I did write a note on both pages, so hopefully it won't be too bad.

    My school predicted me grades for every subject that were usually a lot higher than I knew I would get anywhere near, but teachers explained they didn't really bother about them too much as they weren't very representative... I won't be hitting many targets anyway lol

    My exams went half decently. With the exception of English Lit, which I really really failed on one of them Most others were do-able I think, not expecting amazing marks but good ones at least

    Same! It felt like I spent more time staring at my paper than actually writing in my English exams

    I've heard a lot of complaints about the OCR additional maths exam which is good news in a way because I found it my hardest one of the lot. Despite a hard exam usually meaning grade boundaries will be low, I've heard that 33% of people get a U in that exam each year. Nice...

    I know GCSEs are important, what I'm trying to say is that they didn't tell us this was some sort of official thing we were being given. We've been given so many different pieces of paper telling us we got whatever our grades were I don't know what a real official one looks like. I wasn't given any sort of certificate things for each subject if we're supposed to get that (as I said I know nothing about results because nobody tells us anything about results). My mom used to be a teacher so I would've thought if she thought my year 10 thing I got was something major and official then she would've made us look after it or something... but I really don't know.

    I just looked at edexcel because that's the board my statistics GCSE was with and I saw a page about this: http://www.edexcel.com/i-am-a/studen...ults-Slip.aspx
    I am sure I have not received that slip yet for my year 10 GCSEs, so does that mean I will get it with my year 11 grades or something?
    This is so confusing ;u; It would make more sense to just put year 10 and year 11 officially together when you get year 11 results. xD

    That's sounds really difficult! I st the ccea maths exam so I don't really know about the OCR add maths! Was thinking of doing maths for a level but it sounds hard because we'd be following the OCR spec! Hope you get a great result in August though! Good luck.!
