    No offence but didn't you underperform at GCSE if I recall correctly? Just makes me wonder if your predictions are too generous. I'm not intending to insult you btw, just telling you to not get your hopes up

    I did and that's because I didn't put the work in. This year, I really did put the work in. Hence why I got a place on the Cambridge residential whereas those few people with mostly A*s at my school did not.

    Was very complacent last year, but this year I knew I hadn't secured the grades until I actually took the exam. Obvious I know, however post (very good) GCSE mocks I thought I had secured all A*s
    Sound mate, I hope you do well

    'Under performed' ' too generous'. Might as well have said ' you did **** at GCSE and you're being unrealistic'. Anyway I remember being in that GCSE results day thread and I swear they got like 1 A* few As and Bs. Not really under performing?

    Assuming he did badly without knowing how hard he worked( which he clarified in the last post)
    Edit: the guy was fine with it and don't rly want to start an argument so I'm just going to leave it.

    I remember him saying he underperformed for his own expectations, I wasn't calling his results '****' so jump off your moral high horse and do one. Ty.

    I really don't care what your opinion is of me, you're some random individual over the internet. Now please, stop trying to derail the thread by provoking an argument.
