I've been wondering about the mean percentile of GCSE students using TSR. To be more precise, what's the performance of GCSE students on TSR compared to students that don't use this website. If the grades achieved by TSR members during their GCSE's is in the 50th percentile and below, I'll be seriously shocked. How on earth do so many people achieve straight 9's, when I'm struggling to maintain my current results.

Seriously, I'm starting to feel a little disheartened because in this community everyone is excelling, whereas I'm contemplating the state of my grades. When I go to school the next day, I realise that I'm not too bad, but the moment I open TSR, it really changes by mindset in a volatile manner. Am I, in fact, sub-par compared to the national average? Or does TSR attract a rather high performing community of students.

Please, feel free to share your answers. Thanks!

I think that you'd find that people who have got good grades are generally more likely to share and discuss, either due to bragging reasons, or because they feel that they are in a better position to advise (which they could be).

You've just got to remember that every person is good at something different, and you need to find your area and excel in it. I'm not saying you're academic, I was in the exact same position as you last year after my mocks. I had something like 8 ungraded to grade 3 GCSE mocks, in a school where the average grade is a 9, and I thought I was pretty useless. I just switched up my revision methods though and it all turned out OK in the end, so just stay committed in what you want to do, and keep heart!
