    No they're ****.

    To be honest man, I'm sure someone who holds the grades you have achieved knows the answer to this question without having to ask a question on the forums about it.

    Depends if you're happy with them! Objectively, they are high grades, but some people put such high expectations on themselves that even nearly perfect grades aren't good enough for themselves!

    Yes, you did extremely well! Considering your school is a special measures school, your grades are awesome! You should be extremely pleased with yourself, mate.
