    I would think so considering they are applying for maths, I suppose you don't need to be the best at arithmetic though! You do have a good point, but you should also know that you do not use an apostrophe to pluralise grades (too many people do that). For example, it is A*s, not "A*'s"

    It's just a bother isn't it?
    How would you like it if I said A*A*A*A*A*A*A*A*A*A*A*A* at GCSE?
    Took you a while to count those up didn't it? This is why we use numbers and don't tally everything.

    Yeah no I understand, just thought it was a bit rude to pick that out hahaha when it is very easy to count. But I understand your point, sorry if it was unecessarily sassy, I didn’t mean for it to come across that way.
