    Ya grade boundaries are hella low but the maths in it made about as much sense as Japanese to me. The U was a highly plausible outcome.

    Going from CCD, retaking and achieving AAAA at AS with full marks in Philosophy and Sociology. I guess my Oxford interview was quite a personal achievement as well.

    Achieved 100% in Elocution when I was 10...I got a trophy too! I was a bit annoyed on the presentation day though because I had to sit next to someone with the same name as me (I had a bit of an ego back then)

    Also I won the Literacy Award in Year 8 for reading the most books :lol:

    The only two academic achievements I could think of
