Would just like to see some posts of people who have done a subject in GCSEs which they got a decent grade at, but they took the subject at A-levels and got a higher grade.

Format:

Subject:

GCSE Grade (For the subjects listed above):

A-Level Grade (For the subjects listed above):

Comments:

Edit: I'd just like to add that the reason I'm making this thread is that some people think that it's quite literally impossible to get a higher grade in A-levels for a subject they took at GCSEs.... I hope some of you TSR Members can prove these individuals wrong.

Hey, I've got 5 GCSEs that I have done in France and got A* in French, 2 Bs in maths and English language and a C in literature and in statistics (A*BBCC).

For my AS-Level, which i sat this year got A in French, A in politics, A History and A Sociology (i moved to the uk);

So it is possible, depends all on you

In my GCSEs I got 1A* 4A 4B 3C.

In my AS I got Distinction* + AAB.

Though unfortunately the B was in History, a subject which I also got a B in at GCSE.

Interesting stuff guys. But I hope you guys are aware of what this thread is actually for. It's not really to compare your overall GCSEs to your A-Levels, it's supposed to compare individual subjects you've taken for both GCSEs and A-Levels, to show that you can do better in A-Levels than GCSEs.

Example of what I mean (note that this is made up):

Subject: English Literature

GCSE Grade: C

A-Level Grade: A

Comments: I didn't do that well in English Literature for GCSEs, but I made sure to make a significant improvement at A-Levels.

But a B in A Level history is like an A** At GCSE because it's so much harder so although it's the same letter it's worth alot more effort and time and valued more so technically.... YOU HAVE DONE BETTER!

It would be nice to see some people who've done better in a single subject in A-Level than in GCSE. Anyone?
