    Nah, I only have A*A*A*A* at A-Level. Don't worry, a lot of us are under achievers on here.

    TSR is a weird cross-section of the student population. Your average 16-18 y/o doesn't go on student forums unless they care about their studies, so it's very unrepresentative.

    I certainly didn't get 4 A* at A-Level.

    Usually because most of the posters who give their grade are those that have the grades to brag about or are making them up

    a Student forum will tend to attract more of the academically able students, it's not that there are more of them in the country, it's just this website has the largest concentration of the minority.

    Also has the worlds highest concentration of peeps who got A/A* at GCSE with no revision and went from E to A at A level in a few months. Bluecow made a good point.
