    (Original post by BigBoy786)
    Well, I was predicted mostly a's and some a*.However I relieved grades which were a lot worse.i feel like my school(private) gave me false hopes.I am also very competitive and my friends are too; but they received better grades than me making me feel like all the revision I did was a waste.these were the grades I achieved are they that bad?

    My results
    Maths:B. Predicted(c)
    English lit:B predicted(a)
    English Lang:C. Predicted(a)
    Chemistry:c. Predicted (b)
    Physics:c. Predicted(b)
    Biology:c. Predicted (b)
    History:B. Predicted(a/a*)
    Spanish. Predicted(c) - p.s teacher failed the whole class(majority got a u in
    unit 1)

    I saw my friends get into the sixth form I could've gone and felt my strengths(humanities) let me down.Im so ashamed I got no a's when I thought I did well I'm the exams and even payed for extra resources(mygcsescience).

    Did I forget to mention that I did completely **** compared to my sibling which takes. **** on my self esteem even more.i know GCSEs aren't the end of the world but I truly feel let down by everyone and vice versa as private education isn't cheap. ;(
    I am sorry to hear that you feel all this time has been wasted. I want to point you out to a quote by Albert Einstein....

    "Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a three it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid".

    I did think that this quote would be the closest one I know to your situation. Please remember that this are letters. Don't let yourself be stopped, defeated or controlled by some letters. I am sure you are much better then that. You sibling and friends my be good at Physics or History.... However you will be much better in something else! Study and learn what you enjoy and the process will turn into an enjoyable time and not just doing it because you have too. Keep going and stay positive.
