    This is really the most stuck-up and insensitive thread i've seen all day. On a day where people haven't necessarily gotten the grades they wanted, threads like this only serve to upset and belittle them for their under-performance... or under-value the achievements of those who have got what they deserve. Good for you for getting 4As, it seems to have come at the expense of compassion and a sense of reality.

    Well, it is bit strange that you cannot get a* at AS. But do you want it, if you already know what UMS you have got?
    Yes so it distinguishes me

    Don't worry about it. Universities are not really bothered about your UMS, except Cambridge. I think what you really want to do is to boast about higher grades to you your friends (who also got the same grades as you: a's), without mentioning your higher UMS.
    Just concentrate on getting A*'s at your final year of school. Then you can showoff your grades .
