    I'm also very clever as well. (not bragging lol because even then everyone is much more clever than me!) but just wondering why about 90% of people on here get like 10A*'s at GCSE and apply for 5 RG universities. Why is everyone on here so smart!

    My GCSE results are (currently) 5,6,6,6,7,7,7,7,8,8, but everyone here has like 8,8,8,8,8,8,8,8,8,8! I go to a state school!

    haha lol it's crazy!

    The reason is because this is a community of people who want to share their opinions with clarity. They're likely to be able to defend them, as well.

    I dont think they are. theres also a wide range of people and theres a difference between clever and smart or wise.

    People here typically get good grades. But you just have to read some of the threads (including those posted by these 'super smart' people) to realise that a lot of people here lack common sense, which in my opinion is a much better measure of intelligence.

    Because people who don’t have 100X A*’s don’t feel the need to always drop their grades in conversation :mmm:

    Many people here get good grades because it is a student forum and obviously most people who come here are above average in term of academics. However, a lot of them are also socially innept.

    I'm not! Also may I remind you that perception of intelligence is relative. You consider people who do better than you as smart and people that doesn't worse than you as stupid. At the same time someone on this thread probable thought that you did really well as well and thought "that person is smarter than me". People above average will think of the average as dumb and people below average will think of the average as clever. It's all relative.
