    I got back into my school which has a 7B's and a C requirement but everyone in my school seems to have got better results than me. I got 2 A's 8 B's and 2 C's but I don't know whether it's good enough. I know some people would be thrilled to get these grades but I can't help feeling like I could've done better and am a failure in comparison to others. Does anyone feel the same?

    Try not to compare yourself too much. Your grades are still very good and you should be proud of all the work and effort you put in, regardless of the end result.

    You're more than good enough.

    For comparison, I got 2A's, 1 Distinction, and 8B's. I had difficult circumstances that meant I did not achieve my potential at all, and so like you could've done much better.

    You said you could've done better, so just work your ass off for whatever you do next!

    You've done really well so be happy!!
    Don't think you're any less clever than your friends because everyone's better at different things besides those are great grades Well done and also remember GCSEs aren't everything a levels are what universities really care about so keep working hard!!!
