    It depends on what the grades are being used for but I'd be more impressed with person A because it is clear that after receiving GCSE grades that aren't too great, they have worked hard during their A-levels to achieve great grades. Are these real people because the difference from GCSE to A-level is huge for both people.

    Depends what they're for and what the subjects are. But if I had to pick between them just going on this, Person A. This person looks like they've upped their game and really worked hard for A-levels, whereas Person B's results look like they've slacked off.

    Purely depends on subjects:
    If Person A received AAA in Leisure & Recreation, Accounting & Finance and Law
    And if Person B recieved BBC in Mathematics, Chemistry & English Literature
    I'd say Person B is academically superior with adherence to the qualification prospects of Advanced Level courses.

    Person A is much better, how is this even a question?
    Employers don't care about your GCSE's, but most good grad schemes want AAB+. Person B was probably somewhat naturally smart but put no effort in. Person B is embarrassing.

    Person A is much better personally I believe person A chose even harder A levels than B and still came out with way better results despite their potential/GCSEs

    I got 1 A*, 6As and 3Bs at GCSE then got ABB at A Level (and a C in general studies), person B seems pretty similar to that?

    I also had a mate who got (im not sure exactly) a few a*s and as at gcse (I’m pretty sure she didn’t get any bs at gcse) then got Bs/Cs at a level (she might’ve even got a d tbh, she just didn’t really put in the work when it came to a level)
