    I did worst in English Lit and Lang because they changed the grade boundaries two weeks before we got our results. At least I asked for a remark and went back up to one grade below my predicted. :|

    Short course Religious Studies - I somehow managed to get a C but it seriously affected my overall grade point average for my MEG at college

    Further maths… it was a brand new course, first time the exam had ever been sat and it was so difficult. Tbf the exam was way too hard for everyone as you only needed 15% to get a B…

    But yeah, definitely my worst GCSE, I really regret taking it because if I didn't, I would have had straight A*/A

    I got a C in Chemistry - my only C I'm surprised I even got that frankly, the standard of teaching was pretty poor and I had pretty much 0% interest in the subject. Getting A*'s in ISA's helped pull up my grade massively I think, since I'm pretty sure I got a U in one of the units I was made to take all 3 sciences as some sort of 'fast track' group - would've just taken biology and physics otherwise, which I didn't mind.

    Looking back, if I put in a bit more effort and revision, I could've been a lot more successful in the sciences (I got B's in physics and biology), but I didn't really have the work ethic back then for the subjects that I wasn't so interested in.

    I haven't taken any yet but it will be music. I'd bet my life savings on it. ******* OCR syllabus with the insane grade boundaries. And creative task will genuinely be the death of me.

    My worst grade was religious studies, which I got a C in - but I walked out half way through my first exam because I was coming down with Glandular Fever - who really cares about RE anyways? In terms of the stuff I actually cared about, my lowest grade was a B in Electronics - god that lesson was such a doss but it was fun!

    My worst subject was Latin (1 damn UMS from an A), but I learnt it as part of an extracurricular club, and the teacher literally said "Why don't we try doing IGCSE Latin?" 1 year before the exam, just out of the blue, so I guess a B is not bad. Plus, I had no interest in literature whatsoever, so little that I could even be bothered to memorise the plot of the poem.

    The worst subject that was actually part of my curriculum was Additional Maths (got a B), but as the name suggests, it's supposed to be hard. Also, only a 30 people in my year did it, so I guess the worst subject I did which was in the general curriculum was World Lit. I abhor literature and BS'ed my way through the exam without even finishing my conclusion and received an A: pure luck .

    my worst subject was spanish (which was admittedly an a) because i was awful at the listening paper. i got a's and a*'s in the speaking/writing/reading and then got a c at listening which dragged it all down. *shakes fist at exam*

    I was on the UMS Mark for a B after a remark from a C in English Lit.

    In LLW I got a B and got it remarked and it also went up to an A


    I also did foundation french reading and writing and managed to get a B. Lol. My form teacher said I am the luckiest person she knows... lol

    Overall I got, by the skin of my teeth and no more: A*A*A*A*AAABBB... I was so so lucky
