    [QUOTE=Excalibur]I guess it comes down to, for example, whether 9A*s or 9A*s, 2As & 1B looks better.[QUOTE]

    While the first one may look better for the perfectionist, the second does show more comittment, especially if you studied the extra 4 gcse's from home.

    Anyways, it could even be 9A*s vs 11A*s & 2As if you're good enough

    Dont slam people who did extras; some did it for the knowledge rather than just so they could say 'ooh look, i have more grades than you'.

    I did 9.5 in Year 11, plus AVCE ICT (but I got a D, so we don't mention that ) and I've just done Spanish in Year 13. I don't resent the number we had to do because it's about average, but I do resent the fact that so many subjects were either compulsory or had to be chosen from certain groups, which led to me being forced to take subjects I despised instead of ones I would have enjoyed and got better grades in. The Year 9s now have far more choice than we did- typical

    I did 11 GCSes and a GNVQ in manufacturing through school, and one GCSE on my own through distance learning.

    13 GCSEs, took GCSE statistics in year 10. I know a few people who did 14 because they took an extra GCSE in their language outside of school.

    Half a GCSE? Well that would be either a GC or an SE.

    I did 10 GCSEs. In my school most people did 10, a few did 9 if they were let.
    Compulsory subjects were English Literature, English Language, Maths, French, Biology, Chemistry and Physics, which really sucked. Everyone then chose 4 extras. We were only told about a month beforehand though that we were doing double science instead of the three seperate sciences, so we all thought we were doing 11:rolleyes: Then again we weren't told that English Lang and English Lit were seperate either:rolleyes:

    I did 11 GCSE's plus GNVQ ICT (however many that is worth). Most people in my school did 8 but I also chose to do Environmental Science, Business and Communication Systems and Short Course RE.

    I did 13, but I did 2 in Year 10, so only 11 in Year 11. I couldn't have done 13 in one sitting!

    I have 12. I did 11 at school in my GCSE year, then did GCSE Spanish as part of a fast track 'AS Spanish in a year' scheme in year 12. I quite liked my old schools way of doing GCSEs as we had 5 compulsary subjects and up to 6 extra subject choices, which is more choice than most people get.
