    GCSEs are nothing compared to A levels. Anyone of average intelligence could get a string of A*s at GCSE if they applied themselves a moderate amount

    To be successful in A levels it requires a high degree of conscientiousness and a reasonable level of intelligence.

    You sound like a case of the Dunning-Kruger effect. "Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge."

    Basically your boy had sick gcses( like bare A*'s) but bombed out at A levels so your boy had to settle for a dead university. Speaking to people they seem to be surprised by the uni i'm when I tell them my Gcses. Many of them got only like a few A's at best. I don't want to sound arrogant but i'm considering dropping out and retaking my A-Levels as I feel I should be at a better uni than this with more academic people. Am I being arrogant (since I did bomb my final year of A levels) or is it perfectly reasonable to feel like this. I'm 100% sure If I retook I would get much improved grades
    Different things.
    Are you an arrogant arse? Thats for other people to say.

    Is it arrogant to feel you underperformed and could do better? No.

    Its odd t mention what GCSE's you got. Cant remember ever having that conversation. A levels in the first week maybe, but never GCSEs.

    Just get the degree... unless the career you want requires A levels to a certain standard then your degree will take precedence over any old school results when employers are looking at your CV later. If you really wanted you could probably just retake them alongside your current degree anyway as long as you are prepared to put in the effort, then maybe look to transfer uni later if it's so important.

    I think you should maybe retake. I was in a similar situation to you at the end of year 12, i got really bad as levels, then worked hard and got similar a levels to you, but i didn't get as good gcses. i think you could probably do better, but it depends how you find the course you're doing, is it not challenging enough for you?

    You won't get funding for A Levels as you've already done them.
    Why not? I did.

    Nobody cares, you're going to be normal, a corporate slave anyway, working 9 to 5 until retirement. Do you think default education from the system, designed to churn out employees will help you..They've got you thinking getting A* means your smart, in reality you're doing well at thinking inside the box. Whilst they're distracted C, D and E students are building multi million business and hire you guys directly from the factory to do the dirty work .

    You only get one round of funding for further education, after that you have to pay for it yourself. They are some lower level education loans available but they aren't as flexible as the loans for uni. It may also be counted as income and have an knock on effect on your student loan next year.
