    I don't even think you'd get 1A* with that kind of logic.

    It takes greater intelligence to get 10A*s than 6A*s, sorry.

    There was no need for that, you are just insulting the guy.

    It doesn't really take intelligence to get loads of A*s at gcse just rote memorization and being a jack of all trades.

    I don't think the difference in achieving 6 and 10 A*s is learnt academic intelligence but rather raw intelligence that enables you to apply yourself to a wide range of subjects and achieve understanding in them to a high level. That's why 10 A*s is better than 6

    You already posted this, this is again my response:
    GCSE's don't measure intelligence at all, It's just about commitment and effective revision. E.g. I know multiple people who got 10+ A*'s at GCSE and they all got between AAA-ABB at A Level. This is because at GCSE they were good at a lot of things a 'Jack of all trades', but not particularly amazing at anything. While people who got a few A*'s at GCSE got A*AA-A*A*A* at A Level so their intellectual potential is clearly higher in a specialised area. So to answer your question 0A* at GCSE takes the same level of intelligence as 10A*.

    well I got 9 A* at GCSE and my friend (who is practically a genius and is now getting four A* at a level) got 6A*.
    I would not consider myself that clever by any means - I am just a hard worker and am now struggling slightly with A level chem.

    So my answer is - I don't think GCSEs really show intelligence, just work ethic

    This is correct.
