    I agree.

    So many people get upset over not getting straight As or if they only just got into the A boundary, it just gets a little annoying (no offence to those people). I got a little bit upset about one of my grades untill i realised I'd still got into my university so I'm really happy and proud of myself

    If your proud of what you've got, and you're going where you want to go, like you said, that is all that really matters.

    Congratulations

    Well done! That's all that matters at the end of the day; reaching your own potential and getting what YOU know you're capable of.

    Nicely put. The A-Level people aren't too bad, but I'm getting irritated with some of the GCSE people moaning that they only got 24 A*s when they should have got 25 :rolleyes:

    Tell me about it :rolleyes: How about the ones insistent that the examiner must have made a mistake with their only paper that didn't achieve full marks and they're sending it off for priority remarking at once.

    Well, they can at A Level and seeing as most of the exam boards are the same i would assume that the policy is the same. So, in short, yes ;yes;

    Exactly! None of this "OMG!!!!ZZZZ I didn't get 600/600 even though I got an A I want full marks, I want a remark OMGGGGG!" Give it a break ;yes;

    Everyone should know they have a limit, I knew mine as I'm not the most brightest girl but I worked hard and achieved the best I could, and better than most expectations either.

    Got a remark for Media as AQA hadn't taken my doctor's note into consideration. I now have a B instead of a D, which gives me ABB
