      Religious Studies is a beast and is completely different from GCSE. If I didn't find it interesting and love my teachers, I would definately have been tempted to change it to something else lol. In fact, quite a few people did (one changed to Music, another to Maths, another to Chemistry).
      haha! changing to maths or chemistry FROM religious studies because they were finding it hard going shows the level of intensity between subjects is pretty much even.

      i love religious studies, but it is no way a mickey mouse subject.

      i don't really think any subjects can be considered mickey mouse. some are easier than others, but not to everyone.

      but that's just my humble opinion.

      Well, I'm predicted 4 As, but thats not going to happen.
      3 As and a B would be enough to get me into Cambridge. But I would be extremely apprehensive in stating that I think I've done that. 2 As and 2 Bs is the least I would be happy with.

      Oh, and not because I'm snobby, but because its what I'm capable of getting, and any less will be letting myself down. If your predicted less, but get what your predicted, or exceed it, then you've done just as well as someone who gets 3 As.

      Highly doubt it
      Explain
      One definition of snobby is:

      1. One who tends to patronize, rebuff, or ignore people regarded as social inferiors and imitate, admire, or seek association with people regarded as social superiors.


      Saying "People need to get out more" is patronising, as is "Academics are pretty much nothing if nobody likes you in my opinion". Saying people are "nothing" is rather snobby.

      This thread asks people what they are predicted / got and if replying back with AAA makes you think those people are socially stunted sort of makes you look slightly snobbish but I would say more shallow since you basically called all these A grade achieving people losers

      I'm not personally attacking you and I know what you mean with people being overly competitive and feeling superior because of their grades but that doesn't mean everyone who gets As are snobbish even though people like that do exist...I haven't seen anyone brag about it here which is why your reply may have seemed shallow?

      I never once said people are nothing, i said/meant that academic success to me means nothing if thats all your life is based on instead of people

      People do need to get out more because this forum as i see it shows a lot of people talking rubbish about mickey mouse subjects and not understanding that it isn't possible for everybody to do the sciences/maths/traditional subjects

      don't think this post makes much sense, but try understand where im coming from

      I did say i wasn't tryna downplay people's achievements but by snobbish i meant people talking about "mickey mouse subjects" and looking down on people because of their subject choices etc. I have nooooo problem with people being proud of AAA's, i'd be shouting it from the rooftops if that was what i was predicted

      A couple of pages back there is someone who in my opinion seems to be on some kind of high ground coming like they're better than others

      Oh right yeah I totally agree with you but from your earlier post it could have been interpreted as you being shallow and labeling everyone with As as snobbish but thats cleared up then

      I totally understand. Some of my friends are like "you're not stressed because you know you are going to get AAA". Fat chance. ABB would get me into my firm.

      At the end of the day, anyone who manages to make it out of the British school system alive has done incredibly well in my book, whether they go on to work in MacDonalds or take it all the way through to Masters etc. :p:

      There's no bloody way I'm entering this before results day. I'm predicted AAA, as I got AAB in my subjects last year and the B i took up two months late. I hope I achieve the AAA result.

      Wow, this really is an interesting poll... Shows what a poor representation the members of TSR are as a representation of all students doing A-levels. In my school (a highly-performing comprihenshive), there are only about ten of us in the year (approx 160 people) who are aiming for AAA and only three who are doing more than 3 A2 levels... Most people are expected to get B's, C's and D's and maybe the occasional A thrown in here and there. So TSR is full of very clever people!

      Myself, I'm predicted AAAA (hahaha) and am doing Philosophy & Ethics, English Literature, Geography and Drama & Theatre Studies (some would consider this a soft option but its actually by far the hardest subject because of the extremely particular skills the examiners expect, both in performance, analysis and written exams!)
