Hey
Did anybody get only the highest grades in their GCSEs, and, if so, what subjects did you sit?
(I got 9s in maths, physics, chemistry, biology, history, religious studies, literature, language, french and latin, and an A^ in further maths)

I did 13 subjects (including Additional Maths), with some of them still using the old GCSE A*-G system. I achieved the highest grades in all 13, except for one, which I got an 8 for. Here are my results:

I've always wondered what A^ meant. Is that basically representing an A that is the highest grade possible?

Oh, I see. So what would an A as the highest possible grade count as? I did the OCR FSMQ Additional Maths exam.

I don't know to be honest. I got a 6 in my mocks and had no idea how I did in the real exam - mine was the first year of OCR RS so nobody had any idea how well we needed to do to get said grade. In my opinion I'd suggest you to look at the board's sample answers and comments to get a feel of how to write a good essay.
