    What do you guys think? I got these grades at A-Level and personally, I am devastated by the B, especially with the B being 1 UMS off an A. I'm not getting it remarked, because I had A's in all my modules except one which I did quite badly and expected it.

    Please don't think I'm trying to fish for compliments, I really am not. I just want to get your opinions on these grades, seeing that many people on TSR who got two A*s normally get overall grades like A*A*A.

    Thanks guys!!

    They're good grades. Better than 3A's in my opinion.(and 3A's is considered good)
    TSR grades are completely skewed so take no notice of that.

    A*A*B = A*AA, which is obviously > AAA. :holmes:

    Well I'm Asian so....

    My mom thinks a B and below is essentially considered a failure.

    LOL at these though!!

    By TSR standards? You should be ashamed.


    By normal person standards? Those are brilliant grades, well done.



    I would look into a remark or resit though, if you're that close, there's nothing to lose, and A*A*A will look amazing for whatever you want to do, especially if you're considering any super competitive courses, where it could potentially make the difference.
