    Would people mind sharing their GCSE results in comparison to their A-level results, to perform to me how the two would either be connected or completely different from one another.

    Do you know of any cases where people have only just passed to get into A-levels, and two years later, come out with exceptional marks?

    Personally I don't know anyone that 'only just passed' to get into A-levels, schools are strict enough with how they let people onto courses (say a B in physics to do physics), I'd say for most people its the other way around, getting straight A* for GCSE and not continuing the work into AS/A2. If you have the right mindset from the start of the year, your GCSE's don't matter whether you have 10A*'s or none.
    Most importantly, do subjects you enjoy and you will find it much easier to get the grades you want.
