    A good set of results is at least 20 A*s.
    Anyone who can't even reach this most basic of standards deserves to be rounded up and sent to slave labour camps.

    Define good results? It varies from person to person, from school to school. If we all judge ourselves by our own standards, and we meet or even excede our own expectations then those are brilliant results. If you're talking about 9 Gs or something, obviously that's not so great, but if most of your grades are C and above, then you are a highly useful statistic to the government, congratulations!

    I would say if you meet all your predictions then that would be classed as 'good grades' (unless you've got awful predicted grades because you've been lazy and haven't worked all year and you meet those - that wouldn't be classed as good!). I just want to meet my predicted grades. I'm not too disapointed if I drop a grade in a few subjects but I'd be annoyed if I got drastically lower than predicted. If I got higher than predicted I'd be surprised, pleased but somewhere in my head I'd be thinking, 'well this raises the standard expected for my A Levels now!'.

    I got level 6 for science in my year 6/KS2 SATS and I thought it was great at the time but then for my year 9/KS3 SATS a few years later I was so worried about not getting my Level 7 because if i got a level 6 (or worse, a level 5!) then, it would be like I hadn't improved at all since year 6! Obviously I had but it was extra pressure I didn't need.
