I sat my exams last year and am currently at sixth form studying Psychology, Geography and French - and, I also go to an exceptionally high achieving secondary school.
Are my GCSE results good? Like, for me to go to uni, become successful within an industry etc?
Obviously, I know how important other things are, such as personality, desire, motivation and drive, but I'm only wondering because knowing whether you're 'intelligent' or 'good enough' at something becomes ridiculous once you enter the four walls of my school.
I was predicted 9Cs and a B (in RE) so know that I have done much better than initially thought, but I'm so confused now...I don't know whether I should be happy or sad or surprised, you know?
Being insecure is one thing, but then going to a fab school and only coming out with the below is another.
What do you think?

It really depends. To be honest, most universities are not going to care too much about your GCSEs - they're far more interested in your A levels. As long as there weren't any shockers, which there aren't there, then you'll probably be fine. If you want to go Oxford or Cambridge etc. it'll probably be more important.

GCSEs are somewhat important and your GCSE results are pretty good, not spectacular, but good. However, if you got, for instance, 3 A*s at A-Levels then I doubt your GCSE results would matter too much. More importantly, it depends on which university you want to apply to, which course you want to study (how competitive it is) and your A-level results! GCSE results are amongst many other relevant things that add to the success of your academic career. Don't be overly worried about them and rather focus on your A-levels!
