why is it that most people who visit this site ave really good grades, and those that have average or below dnt?
I don't have good grades!!! Mine are pretty average - I got CCCD at AS level, although I have done many retakes which I put more effort into. Still I'm not looking at any really intellectual uni's - I want to go to East Anglia. I still visit here though!!!
I didn't get spectacular grades at all, I got a B in pretty much everything. The only thing I got an A in was History but this was balanced out by the fact that I was forced into taking Geography (school f**ked up and I had to do it dispite me not having studied it) which I got a C in. I do not think that you should rate intelligence on the basis of grades!
in order to discover this site, people had to go to a "Learning Forum". Automatically, that means people came here looking for academic help (That's why I came here anyway during my exams!). As a generalisation I suppose that people who really care about their grades tend to come to forums like these more than people who care less about their studies.
Also people who dont do very well , dont want to publicise that, especially if there are those who post how well they've done.
And anyway, I think Bs and Cs are excellent too and are absolutely nothing to be ashamed of!
i have a theory here...it is after all an educational site + although we only occasionally talk about college etc + often ramble completely about really random things, we did all find it at some time for a purpose to do with our education. that shows we actually care about our results etc. and are more likely to try hard and revise blah blah getting us good grades.
does anyone agree? (does it even make sense?)
makes sense, even though that's not why I came here. I have learned alot here though. I make good grades as well though, I'm overall an A student, with an Ocasional B every now and then.
Im soooo tempted to go into one of my "A*'s doesn't mean intelligent" rants but I have done that so many times, I'm scared that I would depress most of the forum.
Please do Leekey - your a mod so you could delete your post afterwards (beware d is on at present)
Aren't really in the mood now (too tired). If you like I will post one when I get my AS results. No doubt, by that point I will need reminding that a "U" does not make me a terribly stupid person (just one that has no flair fo sitting exams -especially electronics).
leekey- u could always prepare a rant and then post it on EVERY thread, that way it saves u the hassle of retyping...mind you now you're a mod you should probably lead by example....wil quit rambling (how often do i end up saying that?)
I get the feeling that copying and pasting a rant (especially one of my lengthy, confusing, left-wing, slightly deranged ones) would create much hate towards me.......i never apologise for my ramblings and neither should you!!!
