What were the biggest surprises in your results? The grade boundaries? The national results?
Did you not do as well as you had hoped in your fav subject, but better in your least fav one?
Did you ace something you thought you failed?

My biggest surprise was my B in Spanish because I was terrible at it, during the speaking exam I got told to move onto the next tense, but I didn't know it at all!!

Let me know your biggest GCSE surprises!

Thought I'd got a 5 in Maths, but I'd got an 8 (7 marks off a 9). Also thought I'd flopped Physics, but it turned out to be my best science, and chemistry, which is usually my best, was my worst.

Got an 8 in English Literature....like, I'm glad, but....I did not like Eng Lit. I don't even recall thinking the test was easy; or even writing all that much.

Got an 8 in English Language (getting a remark though because I was one off the 9), even though I was just hoping for a pass.

Did better in physics than chemistry, even though I find physics harder.

Also getting an A in stats and a B in further maths, which I just wanted to pass.
