    Spanish - got a D. Out of a class of 20, only 1 got a C or above.

    I regret not trying harder even though at the time I felt it was my best.

    Mine was Astronomy, way back all those 2 years ago that I did it

    They asked for a labelled diagram of a black hole so I spent twenty minutes coloring in the page with a pencil and writing black hole at the edge with a crude arrow.

    Am I a drain on the school that paid for the exam? Yes. But did I have fun studying the stars unconventionally? Hell yeah!

    But honestly, for anyone doing GCSEs and worrying about pulling a bad grade in one subject, just don't. You'll find your specialty and once you've started A-Levels you'll wonder why you cared about it at all.

    Have fun

    (I can also remember drawing the Potter Puppet Pals on a Geography paper, but I got a C in it...I think the examiners gave me sympathy UMS points)

    Geography. In terms of units, I scraped a C for the first unit but resat it and waiting for the results on the 22nd. I also sat the 3rd unit but the A*'s from the coursework and unit 2 would even my grade out. I did the full course by the way.
