    A lot of us are quite proud on TSR, and like to show off the amazing marks we get, but it's more fun to say what embarrassing marks we've received (unless you're all as perfect as it seems, inb4 90%) :lol:

    Can be any sort of exam, not necessarily one in school/college/university

    Mine was a U in an AS Chemistry exam. Did no revision as I was stubborn and hated it

    U in AS Critical Thinking.

    Doesn't even count towards anything because many unis don't accept it anyway :rofl:

    In an official exam, a D in Spanish listening GCSE. In all exams or tests, I got 0% in my Year 2 spelling test. I’m still salty over it - I even remember the types of word.

    It was words like beautiful - words ending in ful.

    I spelt them all like beautifull. Anyway, that was 12 years ago and I still remember. I need to let it go.

    You have to tell us the subject at least

    I got 15/55 in a chemistry test last month...although I believe the average was something like 18 so really it wasn't that bad...
    22/60 in my B1 mock in year 11 was another one that wasn't great.
    Oh and my 27/40 in my French sounds great...until you realise it was foundation and was an E

    tbh usually I can guess enough to sneak into double figures as you pick up some knowledge without even trying when you are just in every lesson, and when you're a crammer you have to become good at guessing :lol:

    In a real exam, I got a very low C in my GCSE English Lit Poetry exam (got a B overall though )

    In mock exams, I got the pre-GCSE equivalent of a U in my Y9 history exam :lol: dreadful subject. I also got 0/24 in a GCSE English Language mock, 7/60 in some Physics mock I did in Y12, and I got either an E or a U in my M2 mock exam for Further Maths last week :getmecoat:

    Oh and if we’re including non-exam components, I got an E in my GCSE PE Practical :rofl:

    Talk to me about it in detail.
    It was a module I was doing that wasn't directly related to my course. I reverse snowballed all the way to 4% - really horrible. It didn't affect my final grade luckily.
