7.6
7.9
Note that there'll be a considerable rise in this average year on year. When I did them (2000) a perfect 8.0 would get you in the papers, now hundreds of students, including several in this thread, manage it.

My sister got a perfect 8 (from 11 A*) in 1998 and she didn't get anywhere near the papers.

yes, but the number of students who get a perfect 8 from a state school is extremely small, most schools have none.

i go to the best high school in leeds, and only 1 girl, a one-off i may add, got a perfect 8.

its only the private schools were there are quite a few - in normal schools its a rarity.

thats why oxbridge are often harder on private school applicants in regards to their gcse's, because its generally easier to get the grades if you go to a private school.

emphasis on the general.

think - better teaching, smaller class sizes, more work on exam technique, better facilities, more weight on doing well etc. and no gimps. (or v.few)

Well I got 4A*, 2 A, 1 B, 2 C (science - grrrr)

I was told that my application wouldn't even be considered by a horrible person from the grammar school when I mentioned it. Proved her wrong. I am doing English now and I got top 5 for my English lit GCSE so I suppose that makes up for the science. Who needs science for English anyway?
Me too for the top 5 thing (not that I'm doing english lit anymore heh) woo!

It's actually extremely good for the area, miles above the rest. Thing is, most of the people who start at that school can't speak english, they also are the only school in the area able to support people with learning difficulties. So yeah, they're facing huge problems, but they do rather well for themselves. I think there's a video of Blair having a noddy around still online.

stuff you loser.

tek is sound, ok i was a bit mean to him about whether he was a boy or a girl, but he is a good member of the forum.

dont talk to people like that, loser.

7.9 is a superb average - way above average for oxbridge.

"you're also a nobhead" - you need to practise.

replace "you're" with "I am".

there, learn now.
