    This is going to sound really up-my-own-backside, I know 😂
    I got straight A*s at GCSE, I'm new to writing a CV, would they rather read A*-B?

    I don't want to come across as a show off, or like I'm lying about my grades. I'm only applying for a job in retail. I DON'T KNOW WHAT I'M DOING *panics about finally being a part of the real world* 😅

    yes most definitely put you got straight A*'s! it will show you're varied across the board and are able to do a variety of skills. talk about how much effort you put into getting these grades (even if you didn't put any work in at all) to show that youre hard working and a dedicated person. well done on them grades btw! great achievement! and good luck with your application

    Just say that you're on TSR... The straight A*'s will be so obvious that you won't even have to include them!

    Or write, '11 GCSE A*'s (including English and Maths) but where's the fun in that?
