    its amazing how in this thread everyone seems to have 125+IQ
    It's always the case with any Internet discussion of IQ. One may conclude such threads attract intelligent people or maybe just people with self-esteem issues.

    Recall of information doesn't make you intelligent.
    If you get a better grade than you are. =) Isn't that the whole point of exams, a test of intelligent to see if you are trainable enough for a good job.

    But it is just recall of information, how in any way does being able to recall something make you intelligent? Would you say in 20 years time your intelligence had declined because you failed to recall what was in the exam 20 years ago?

    No you wouldn't.

    So what does make you intelligent then?

    oh, and maybe getting A/A*'s at GCSE without revising too :sexface: (that's right, feel my arrogance)
    Getting an A/A* at GCSE without revision is like beating a 6 year old in a fight without practice. ****'s easy, don't be so smug because that attitude is going to screw you over in later stages of education.
