    Does anyone here care about what anyone else thinks about their results (e.g. friends/teachers)? I hate that all my friends and teachers used to tell me that I was going to get all A*s and said I would overachieve, when in fact I underachieved. They used to all have high expectations of me and I can't believe I let them down.

    You've probably misread something. The way it will always work for GCSEs is as follows:
    90% UMS - A*
    80% UMS - A
    70% UMS - B
    60% UMS - C
    and so on.
    Are you sure that it's out of 200 or that you got 172?
    I looked at my grades now and yes it just says 172

    Was anybody's mark for AQA Christianity and/or Christianity Ethics (Units 1 and 2) much lower than expected? I got an A in the mock and was predicted an A*, yet I got a C.


    Yours sincerely,
    Alec Robertson.
    This is very urgent as I need to decide whether these should be re-marked!

    These were my results:

    A - Maths
    B - English
    B - English literature
    B - Science
    B - Additional science
    B - Business studies
    B - PE (short)
    C - ICT (short)
    C - RE
    C - History

    I plan to study economics, English combined, geography and maths (for AS) this year in sixth form. Do my GCSE results reflect my options for a level? Are my GCSE results average or decent?

    hey I have no idea about the question you're asking but I got 9A*s and 3As and since we got similar results and you're looking into studying at oxford do you think I would actually stand a chance too? I never even imagined about Oxford or Cambridge!

    Average point score, which 6th form use for admission. A* is 58, A is 52 and 46 is B, C is 40 and so on. Usually you need 40+ to get into 6th form. What did you get? I got 51. They add all the numbers and then divide it by the number of GCSEs you have (average). For example, you may need 45 to get into your 6th form.

    9A* and full UMS in English Lit, which is what I plan to likely study at uni. Somehow managed to bamboozle the OCR music people into thinking my coursework was great, whilst getting Bs in the exams Have spent entire day in a haze of fatigue and shock, got a (horrific) photo of me alongside the other 9A* people from my school (who all look gorgeous - curse my lack of photogenia), watched a lot of movies and ate a lot of junk food, and can barely remember half the things that have happened. Today is simultaneously one of the best and one of the most surreal days of my life...mainly due to that last night is the first all-nighter I've ever pulled :O
