    Okay, so GCSEs was something I felt I had, I could grasp the techniques and definitely procrastinated, but I got myself together and done my exams to the best of my abilities. Then for results day I remember all my friends being worried and I was cheerful because I wasn't scared. Ripped open my results and saw Bs, Cs and Ds. I was upset. Since that day all I have ever said is that these examiners don't know how to mark. They aren't frickin qualified to mark my papers because I know what I wrote and I don't want some adults marking my paper and giving me crap grades and feeling like a failure. I saw most of my friends and new friends talking about how they got 9s, 8s, 7s, A* and As. Obviously they made it look easy.

    Then you have those people who want to apply to Oxbridge wanting to do medicine, doing the usual chemistry, maths, biology... talking about their A*s and if they will get into Oxford or Cambridge. Well obviously you will! If you can get good GCSE's and A-levels, making people feel like trash!

    But overall if you knew me you would know that I didn't deserve those grades. Now my life kind of sucks because of these examiners who don't know how to mark.

    Even after a month of receiving my results, I didn't cry. Then my mum comes and goes like I need tuition and I better get good grades otherwise...
    So this pissed me off and I cried because I felt worthless. I tried but obviously she didn't see it and said I should have tried harder. All these parents only care about bloody As and A*s not hard work. Again making me feel crap.

    I have always felt crap not getting As or A*s, even in SATS GCSES. I will always be average no matter how hard I try.

    Some people are naturally gifted with examinations so get A’s and A*’s. What’s happened has happened. No point crying over the past. The past is out of your control. The future, however, is still in your hands so work hard to achieve the best possible grades and achieve your aspirations

    I didn’t do well in my GCSEs. Not everyone gets A*’s everywhere. It’s just on TSR that you see everyone with Cambridge level grades.

    I did OK on my GCSEs (meh on TSRs standards), got crap A-Levels and came out with a first at university. Don't let letters on a piece of paper hold you back.

    I highly doubt everyone at your school came out with A’s or A*’s, unless you went to a grammar school.

    You can't blame the examiners though, if you don't take responsibility for your own grades you won't improve. Plus, if you didn't agree with the grades you received you could've asked to see a photocopy of your test paper and gone through it with your teachers and/or asked for a remark. It's unlikely that every single paper you sat they've marked wrong.

    I grew up in Cambridge and went to a school that churned out Oxbridge offer holders. That being said, the majority of people either weren't Oxbridge level, or didn't care about going to either. I did the old style GCSEs and A-levels and we all realised that we were being taught to pass exams and that was it. Yeah people got the grades but there are far more important things in the world and Oxbridge is overrated. Work hard for yourself, not for others.
