    A - Art
    B - Statistics
    B - Maths( Remarking Few Marks Off - I honestly do not believe they marked my test)
    C - French (Lol)

    I personally believe I failed; though it may not look like it but everyone's own pass rate is self defined... I had practically everything a few marks off and I'm not feeling having to remark everything. Ah well. So how do I fare competitively - once again competitively - against other people overall and in computer science? Will I be fine for uni?

    Please no; GCSE's are gcse's focus on A Levels; I want you to tear me apart. I was after 6+ A*'s and got stuck with A's; 8 UMS off A*'s for RE and Geography however when added up individually; I however cannot find the grade boundaries for the total of these subjects as well as English Literature so I can't really be sure. If anyone can hit me up - Science is AQA and English Lit is Edexcel I believe or AQA as it was on my AQA sheet (test number 9717).

    Thanks to all whom have replied so far. I am painstakingly aware of this and I love this fact; as academia isn't exactly my main priority but it's a means to an ends and I just so happened to not get what I expected... so I've been reading how GCSE's sort of come in to play in further areas etc. Med School and that's got me thinking about where else it could come in play.
