I went to a pretty bad comprehensive school for my GCSEs - we got 23% 5A*-C grades last year but to be fair, it was quite a bit worse than previous years. Another school in the local area got put under special mesures becasue it was so bad and they still beat us in every way :rolleyes: Ony something like 3 students got any A*s one girl got 8A* and 2As - she might have got all A*s but our school had the intelligent idea of making us all do double award ICT in just one year with crappy teachers :rolleyes:

I now go to a slightly above average sixth form college. Last year someone got in the top 10 in the country for Physics and another got in the top 5 for Law.

heyy im a grammar schooler too but i think the reputations that they have for being anything great is rubbish... we have amazing gcse grades but everyone is psychologically pressured to get good marks from the time we start here aged 11, the school isn't that good they just have the knack of making us feel like we -have- to work... i guess it kind of pays off though i'm doing scarcely any revision and am not worried at all :cool: ...*shrugs* perhaps i should be though... :confused:
