    Do you guys think that they should make a grade for 100% achievement on topics? I know the new GCSE grading system will include it up to 9 which is the top end of A* currently but still for the people who can get 100% do you think they should achieve a special grade for it?

    I don't think they should.

    Nice idea, but people will stress too much for it (I know my parents will break their backs to allow me to have 100%), which will just cause further problems.

    Also, next to no one will have it. Some of the exams are easy, but I tend to get, for example, 98% on a Maths exam rather than 100%.

    Also, 10 A*'s is good enough for anyone.
