    I swear this is like the most depressing thread ever.
    Lol it is. I have been thouroughly deflated about my results.

    I was happy with them, but now I realise that they are are really quite weird.

    Biology A (297):eek:
    Core principles- 90/90
    Genes and Genetic Engineering-88/90
    Physiology and Transport- 119/120

    Chemistry A (268)
    Organic- 108/120
    Atomic bonding and periodicity- 83/90
    Foundation physical and inorganic- 77/90

    Physics A (287)
    Particles, Radiation & Quantum: 90/90
    Mechanics and Kenetic Theory: 90/90
    Electricity and Materials: 107/120:confused:

    Mathematics A (271):mad:
    Core 1-97/100
    Core 2-89/100
    Mechanics-85/100

    English Literature A (288)
    Shakespeare-90/90
    The Mordern Novel, Spies people!- 90/90:eek:
    Text in Context- 108/120

    General Studies (283), and I got a B in Critical Thinking. My excuse is that it wouldn't fit onto my timetable so took the "read a textbook the night before" approach.

    Maths is irritating because I got 100%s for the mocks, but I knew I screw up those papers after the exam. I suck at chemistry period, well, I suck at sticking to the marking points anyway.

    The English and Biology though were completely unexpected, so it was a mixed batch.

    What's wrong with you?
    Most of your marks are far higher than people like me can ever expect to achieve. You should consider yourself fortunate to be getting over 90% in most subjects.

    (253/300) Economics AQA A
    Module 1- 92/105
    Module 2- 98/105
    Module 3- 63/90 (Dont know what went wrong in this one)

    (249/300) Physics AQA A
    Phb1- 99/105 up from 82/105 17 marks increase in the resit
    Hopefully can do the same in January with Phb2
    Phb 2- 74/105
    Phb3- 76/90

    And (249/300) Philosophy AQA A
    PLY1- 74/100
    PLY2- 82/100
    PLY3- 93/100

    Which was nasty because I was going to use the mark in philsophy and physics to decide which to drop, had to go by gut instinct.
    So went for physics because you can resit in january where in philsophy they only have june exams.

    We're all pretty similar, thinking about it. A few lower, a few higher. Although I have just spent a lot of this afternoon with a girl who's been revelling in 100% in physics and complaining about dropping 2 marks in chemistry :p:

    Well there are a lot of people here who have done a lot better than I have in my subjects. That does tend to burst the bubble a bit.

    And in answer to your question, yes I have friends who have similar results to me, give or take a few marks and in different subjects. I just came off the phone from a friend who had exactly the same unit marks as me for physics, we found it slightly disturbing. She got quite a bit higher than me in Maths and Chemistry though, and she complained about her "low" English Lit mark. We do consider ourselves fortunate, but it doesn't hurt to want to be better. I think it's just a different perspective. We're all under a lot of pressure to achieve more. It's probably not a healthy attitude for the long stress levels.

    Come to think of it, your average is under 95% (in the 5 ''valid'' subjects), so its nothing exceptional.

    To everyone here: well done, your results are fab!

    Last year looking at the GCSE results thread was really disheartening after I was initially pretty happy about what I'd got, so I'm trying not to let the same happen this year. We've all done well and I bet everyone has at least one module or subject they did better in than they thought they would! Comparing ourselves only makes us feel worse - be happy with your personal achievements
