The more i read posts on this board (old and new), the stupider i feel. I constantly read posts like this one:

'I got pretty average GCSE 5 A* 3As and 2Bs and but I am capable of getting much bettter grades at A level. I didn't really take the GCSEs very seriously.'

Pretty average? PRETTY AVERAGE! I thought pretty average was 8c's, not 5 A*'s, 3A's and 2B's! This seems to be the attitude reflected through-out the forum, if someone our year got those grades they would easily be the smartest! Last year there were only 6 A*'s through-out all subject areas, 1 in French, 2 in English and 3 in Media studies. Now either i go to a really stupid school, or this is the smartest online society ever made!

Makes me feel like a fool, with my (predicted) grades of 1 C, 6B's and 5.5 A's!

Yes, this forum is full of geniuses - Its waaaaay above anything in schools, miles ahead!

The average GCSE Grade in England is a High D.

I got 6A*'s and 4A's, and class myself on here as thick

I know what you mean, in the normal world getting a couple of As and the rest Bs means you are a genius.

They may be all clever but I know I'd win them all in a slanging match.

I did very badly all throughout my school life and I come from a state school. This was through SATs and GCSEs.

Last year I got 6As for my AS levels so miracles do happen.

Fear not! I believe males have a longer mental gestational period - like me.

Just remember (so many people have said this already lol) that this place is called UK Learning, and most people come to it at least in the first place for acedemic reasons. Also, people lie, they do, it's forum peer pressure I think!

Yes and it prooved my theory that 'clever people aren't attractive' wrong.

comparing most of the people here to the outside world they are not particularly attractive, no.

LOL! Good point. It doesnt prove any theory though, i am sure ugly people won't post their pics - so it isnt fair. I can't see how some people get good grades, they seem to spend so much time on here. Would I be making a bit to big of a generalisation saying that, for over half the people on this board, this forum is there only source of 'fun'. Meh!
