Wow Hahaa ; so upsetting when teachers have such low expectations on their students !(Original post by Paraphilos)
For me it's about being in the middle set mathematics class throughout GCSE - being told no one in our class was capable of a B in mathematics - and then getting a grade 1 in STEP to get into Warwick.

I think a few sixth forms do it. I thought it was a common thing, it was for students who got AAA or higher so they could have their photo with their grades for the next college prospectus.

I got an A in AS further maths without realising 😂

I was predicted straight Cs in my GCSEs but was determined to do better! I literally fought to retake assessments so that I could boost my overall grade in the end.
In summer (2016), I cam out with 1A*, 3As and 6Bs.
I got my A in English language (A* in the exam and 1UMS mark off an A* overall - grrrr), despite getting a D in my mock-mock exams, and managed an A in RE, despite getting an E in my mock-mock and a D in my mocks.
Hard work and determination really are everything, so please believe in yourself!
You can do this!!!
