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'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.
