# If you get 10 A stars, do you say that you got 10 As and A stars or just 10 A stars? watch

1. would appreciate any help!
2. Lol, wth?! You got 10 A*s...
3. noo! It was just an example! So anyone know how you call your results as? Argh!
4. oh right, is that the answer? Lol I'm so dumb, thanks!
5. A* = A star
A = A

I'm not really sure what you're getting at here
6. coz i heard from someone that you can say "I got 10 A and 10 A stars" when they just got the 10 A stars lol! thanks for ur help!
7. No! That would give them 20 GCSEs, it would be like counting each A* twice!
8. If you get 10A*s, you say "I got 10A*s". If you got, say, 7A*s and 3 As you might say, "I got 10 As and A*s" - or "I got 7A*s and As"! If that's not what you mean, I'm thoroughly confused.....
9. heheh no probs, I get it now
10. I agree with the above post. If someone got ten A*'s then they would probably say that ''I got 10A*s''. However, if they say, for example, for 6A's and 4A*'s they might say ''I got 10 A's and A*'s'' or ''I got 10 grades at A or A8'' or ''All my GCSEs were at A or A* standard''.

I've only just finished GCSEs. I hope this helps. I'm very confused!
11. Yer i see her point, for example i got 7 A's and A*'s

it sounds better than what i really got, 2 A*'s and 5 A's (and 4 B's) allthough i was never trying to mislead people.
12. Zakatu> lol
13. Just like saying 'I got 6.5 A*s and As' sounds better than 'I got 1 A* and 5.5 As'
14. yer, it makes it sounds as if you got all top grades, when only one maybee was an A*.

I never thought about it though at the time, just seemed like an easier way to say it.
15. hmm, so you don't feel you might be having this problem of what to say with your 10 A*? :>.<:
16. Hmm..... I'm liking it... "I got 8 A*s and As"... on the other hand, I'd rather be like some of my friends and be able to say "I got 8A*s"
17. yeh if you get 10 A*s you just say "i got 10 A*s." you'd say "i got 10 A's and A*s" if you either got 20 gcses, or if you got a mixture of As and A*s, totalling 10 gcses. except normally i think people say "i got 5 A*s and 5 As" or whatever because that makes more sense.
18. The real question is do you say "ten A STAR" or "ten A STARS" because i've met a people who say it both ways!
19. You normally say "I was pleased with my results." Going around telling people you got 10 A*s will just get you in serious trouble.
20. (Original post by glance)

Yah did that last year (only had one A* then) but there are just some people who will keep pushing to know exactly what you got, then when you tell them say "you shouldn't just be pleased you should be bloody extactic!" which is jsut as bad!
