    Basically, I have been here quite a while and realised this place is saturated with people achieving a very high percentage of A*s at GCSE and it is a bit overwhelming, do you guys think some people lie about grades and if so have you caught them?

    What, you mean like this guy?

    Honestly I think it attracts a lot of high-achieving school students who want somewhere to show off their high grades to try to get some sense of appreciation that they can't find elsewhere...

    So methinks most people are telling the truth

    I'm sure there are people on this site who lie about their grades but the reason it may seem like everyone seems to get all A*s is because it can feel intimidating when there are people on here with the wrong idea about success

    Try not to compare your grades to others people's or be intimidated by them, what's important is that you get the best grades you can with your ability

    Nah I don't think they lie, if I weren't for me reading all about people being predicted/getting top end grades at gcses then I wouldn't have have had the belief that maybe I could do well too in my gcses. My grades are considerably lower to a lot of people here but oh whale

    Apart from the obvious trolls, I don't think so. I just think this website attracts some people more than others. Don't get overwhelmed by them - what matters is that you've done your best, that's what achievement is.
