    If u have got a C In a majority of your subjects but a A/high B in mathematics is that really really poor?

    success is relative to the person, to me personally i'd cry if i got lower than a 7 but to some people they'd be over the moon with a 4

    i guess it depends what a levels you're planning to take?

    A lot of subjects are ranked by how hard they are to study, maths and English are top of the 'respect' level, so getting high marks in those two is major cool. It is also helpful for work, as many employers like their employees to have at least a C in both, thus a better job and more dosh in the bank.

    I also agree with the above post, it's what your goal is and how much you're willing to push to get those grades. Some may naturally be good at the subject, however, they will hit a wall later on at College/University as they wont necessarily know how to study properly and thus struggle from the outset.

    I would said it was brilliant to get those grades, they are all passes, and yep the maths is a brilliant mark to have.
