    He's just said that he's dissapointed. Don't try and make out that he should celebrate if he feels he underachieved, just because it would suit you.

    He's better than an B in Economics.
    And I dont know if you noticed or not but everyone else is saying congratulations. Am I not allowed to say it just because he said hes disappointed?

    Well done people, kick a man when he's sort of down at the moment.

    "I'm dissapointed, I must have spectacularly failed Econ to drop to a B, dead cert for a."

    Followed by:

    "Well Done! you must be so pleased!"

    Sorry to have a go, but when it's clear someone is dissapointed, don' say "well done, you must be pleased" because you would be.
    Well what you say then? ''Oh they are terrible, you must be devastated''?

    No, because he seems dissapointed, esp. talking to him on MSN. I know that if I felt I underachieved and get "well done you must be pleased" comments, it doesn't help.
    Please get your head out your arse. He has made the grades for the insurance offer, and if the STEP results are good for the firm.

    Although he may not have done as well as he expected they're still great grades and he deserves to be congratulated. However, I'm sorry if we've upset him

    just because he may be dissapointed does not make it any less of an achievement...

    AABB at A level is amazing.

    once he's got over the shock and actually realised what he's got he'll be equally as happy as the rest of us are already for him.

    Look please stop arguing, I am disappointed with my grades, I am angry at myself for managing to get a B in a subject in whcih I was practically guaranteed an A. But if despite all that I manage to get into Cam I'll be over the moon and won't even think about economics.

    So calm down y'all.

    I'm quite surprised, I expected people to say "cheer up, least you met the A2 part of your offer, least wait for STEP", or something along those lines.
    I seriously suggest you read peoples posts properly before attacking them If you looked properly you would have seen that most people said things along the lines of ''you are so lucky'', ''thats good'' etc. Not ''you must be pleased''

    Fishpaste, I think it is your ability that is more important rather than your grades. so there is no need to be dissapointed since you can retake them in Nov/Jan... So just wait for Step results before being too dissapointed.


    #I hate it when people just change the topic of the thread. Its not a "fighting" or "****ging off " thread. So Please don't be selfish.#

    When do you find out about the STEP results and have you got what you need for your 2nd choice?

    Little harsh there, considering I never insulted you and he seems very dissapointed with his Econ result.

    But nevermind, please forget it.
    Well whatever it was you did then. Im too hungover to think of the correct terminology. But yes, I will forget it with pleasure

    if you were genuinely surprised with the B theres a good chance something went wrong somewhere along the way.

    a couple of years ago someone in my year who was predicted an A* for geog got a C. she was naturally disappointed and was unable to take the subject at A-level. anyway, a couple of months into AS, she got a call from the geography teacher saying there'd been a mistake and she actually had an A*. but by then it was too late to change courses... blah blah... anyway point is mistakes are made ... often... ive heard so many stories of carelessness with results, losing papers, just using predicted grades etc.

    once youve seen your module scores its probably a good idea to request a photocopy of the paper, and if you still have doubts request a remark. its great that youve got the grades for our offers, but if you feel you deserve better then youve nothing to lose by pursuing it. if its important to you then go for it

    good luck with the STEP grades, really hope you get into Cam...
