improving my grades? is this the max to my intelligence?

    • Thread Starter

    hello, i got 6 a*s, 2 a's and 1 b at i/gcses
    im doing ib currently predicted a total of 40 (i hope i can achieve this)
    anyway, some people did much better at their i/gcses etc. and i only want to apply to top unis (also what my parents want) so how can i do well since my i/g's arent that good? i have plenty of extracurriculars and stuff btw, to help me get into uni.
    i study so much already to achieve the grades i have. am i just naturally dumb and have to work harder to get what others can get easily? thanks
