A B grade is very good!

You said you wanted us to explain everything for you...that's quite an open question! Is there anything in particular that you want explaining?

Any specific courses/uni's you're thinking of applying for? Most should be fine with it - as I said, a B grade is very good!

It depends. Do you want to be a programmer?

A B is good but it depends what specific computing sector you want to go into?

Thanks for the replys. Well I'm not so sure at the moment. But what courses do you think I could do in A Levels/uni? Thank you.

Depending on your maths GCSE grade you could do a computer science A level

You'd need an A in maths. Computer science is where you learn how to programme and stuff like that

I'm not too sure about ICT at A level. I think you need an in GCSE ICT for that. ICT will be easier, but computer science is the better qualification. Personally, I find ICT to be stupidly easy

Okay thank you. Still can't believe I got a B overall :c considering I got an A on my mock exam, and got a C on the real exam. I really wanted an A/A*, do you think B is still okay and does it really matter? THANKS!

Yeah, a B is OK but I would've been a bit disappointed

Yeah I'm disappointed. But I've just gotta move on eh? Does it really matter I got a B instead of a A? If so why? Thank you

Well yeah - you'd probably need an A to get into a computer related course at college

I wouldn't worry about a B I got a B despite getting an A in all of my ICT work, but then my science and RE pulled it down (I done the ICT Higher Diploma so they counted) then I went on and done ICT at college and got a B overall in that too, which is enough to get into uni so I wouldn't worry
If programming etc is more your thing though maybe doing computing at A Level would be better for you? You do a lot of programming and ICT A Level is more expanding on your knowledge in all aspects. Hope this helps and congrats on your results
