    And you refer to people going to private schools as "cheating"?

    No, my tutor told me that examiners like to purposely mark up the private schoolers grades. Thats what got me angry, Im not blaming the private schoolers, Im blaming the examiners, thats why I was saying that our results could be just fake.

    I'm not that clever

    I just have a good work ethic
    Oh that's the same as me, I always do my work, revise as I go through the year, then have some blood intensive revision sessions in the last week or so before my exams; it's not like I'm that bad naturally anyway so combined I'm always fine.

    I thought examiners don't know anything about which school the exam papers come from or whether the school is private etc. The examiners are just given a centre number and i doubt any examiner can know every centre number for the schools.

    But isn't that everyone does...
    I always have done that and was always the top of my school!!!...
    No, unfortunately I dont do that. In fact the only bit I do is the intense revision a week beforehand

    I did rubbish compared to people on here but I was not overly disappointed. Anyhow, it was only AS so I have time to impove. To be honest cramming is the only real thing that works for me...If i start too early I can never remember anything.

    Trust me, if every weekend you revise you'd remember it and get all A's...the thing is no normal person would ever do that, including me.

    I'm suprised about how long before my GCSE's I began revision, still I didn't work enough over the two years so I might not have got the full set of A*'s I wanted at the start of year 10, but I have learnt my lesson. Getting good marks isn't all about revising, but the work you do over the years, for me anyway...

    Hmm. Funniest film that I can think of is Life of Brian. Actually, scrap that, it's Billy Madison, but Life of Brian is just brilliant. Few films manage to consistently produce genuine laugh out loud moments.
