    I'm seeing so many negative posts about A'Level results and seem to be seeing very few people actually happy with their results? What happened this year?

    Why would someone create a thread just to state how happy they are with their grades?

    People who are unhappy usually seek advice or if anyone else has/is in similar circumstances.

    Some people had medical issues, bad exams, poorly marked papers or were just unlucky.

    For most people however, they got what they deserve, whether good or bad.

    Trolls are usually the smartest in the class. Trust me I'd know.

    I'm not talking only about people on TSR. People from my school, even the really clever ones are getting E's and U's.

    Yeah I know. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with people seeking advice, I'm just saying I've noticed that a lot of people haven't done well this year.

    Is this AS or A2?

    In my experience, a lot more people fail in AS because they still think they can get away no work like in GCSE.

    It's mainly AS I'm referring to because I know more about it than A2 as my sister recently got her results.
    Yeah, I think that is a major reason but I was surprised to hear that some really hardworking intelligent students got E's.

    Oh...maybe the exam boards made a mess?

    From my experience, you tend to get out what you put in at A level. Most of my friends who worked hard did well. I think the main reason people fail AS is because they don't take it seriously enough. It's not unusual for A* GCSE students to drop to E's and U's at AS.

    By A2, people tend to have realised they need to work. Plus, there are uni places on the line to motivate them.
