    I received my GCSES results today and I'm slightly disappointed. I ideally wanted 8 A*s and 2 As but these are my results:

    English Literature: A*
    English Language: A*
    Maths: A
    Physics: B
    Chemistry: B (1 mark off an A)
    Religious Studies: A*
    Spanish: A*
    History: A
    Latin: A*
    Drama: A*

    So I got 6A*s, 2As and 2Bs. I know these grades are fine but I'm still quite disappointed. All the subjects I'm doing for A Level I got high A*s in, which is positive for A Level but I still feel I could have done better.

    Are they good enough for top universities, preferably abroad? Congratulations to everyone else too

    Are they good enough results? no.

    Will they get you into a good uni? yes.

    ---

    Piratically speaking they are perfectly good enough for anything you want to do..

    But really, you aimed for higher, and would not be asking this question if you were not a little disappointed. so no, they are not good enough. you set yourself a high standard, and next time if you want to match it, you need to find a way to be better. *

    Take all the positive feelings you can get from those who will praise you, but you know you wanted better, so no they are not good enough - and next time make sure they are up to your expectations. Often its those that are not happy with what is practically enough, but strive to match their own personal goals that end up doing the best.. *

    Probably because Max is 400. With 400, 200 is a D and 240 is a C.

    UMS is the way to translate raw marks into grades. Grades are based on % UMS points (D being 50% and C being 60%).
