    It depends on your definition of good. If I got a C I'd be really annoyed with myself and think I was a complete failure. If someone that was regularly failing got a C they'd be over the moon. It's subjective.

    If you're happy with it that's all that matters. Providing the grades get you what you want you don't need to worry if they're good or not. They'll be someone better and someone worse. There's always a way to compare yourself that makes you seem average. If you're happy then who cares.

    Well done on the grades. They're all passes

    schools generally want 5 A*-C grades including english language and maths. since you hit that, i think you did pretty well! well done op☆
