    They're only mocks, it's not the end of the world. And of course they're good enough. You'll only annoy people if you talk about it like that (trust me, I know) so just work to get them to what you want.

    There are far bigger obstacles in your path than your lack of 17 A*s.

    Why do you say that 5A*'s and 5A's were 'really bad' results?

    because they aren't 10A*s and they arent all at 100% (in fact none of them were ) therefore they aren't good enough!

    Exaggeration :P But quite seriously, you probably will get 10 A*s in the end, and again, if you don't, there are far more serious barriers to a law career to be worrying about.

    Having high expectations isn't a bad thing. But why do you think they are 'bad, real bad' and go on to claim that they aren't good enough for law (when they quite clearly are)?

    firstly gcses have a tendency to mean absolutely bugger all and secondly they were a mock so dont feel so crappy bout them and thirdly i think u should stop seeking sympathy when the average person would dream of having those results!

    people really need to get over the whole gcse thing really do?! u can study them in a week n pass! they have no significance...sorry to sound arsey but it annoys when people are like i got 10As n 4A*s n im gutted! get over it!

    you will all realise when u've done em!

    People like you piss me off. There is more to life than a 100% in each and every GCSE. To do law you don't need that, you need other qualities such as the ability to think on your feet and be outgoing rather than shy etc.

    There are many people applying to law who have been rejected from top uni's with 15 A*s or whatever, and many who has been accepted with like 1A*, 7 As and 1B. As it is your mocks were very good, you know it and I feel that you are looking for someone to boost your ego a bit.

    Er, yeah i'm really sorry to say this but you really need to get out a little more. I knew someone at school who was always wanting to be the best, and in the end she had no friends ledt because she got on everyone's nerves so much! Surely its better to have a great personality which will be with you for life, than getting all a's at gcse.
