i think a strong set would consist of 7s, 8s and 9s but 'strong' is relative

To go with what the average student would say, I believe a mixture of 6's and some 7's (potentially even one 8) would be considered a "strong performance".

As said, 'strong' is relative. However, I'd say all 8s and 9s is elite and expected from top performance students coming from private educations.

You don't have to come from private education to get all 8s and 9s

I know hence why I said 'expected'. I know of somebody who came away with all 9s- she went to a state school.

Like I said above, going along with the average student who would get mostly 5's and some 6's, that I would say is above average. Therefore that should be considered a "strong performance". An outstanding performance would be 7's - 9's in every subject (that's where my logic comes from).

Thankyou- your logic is perfect. I'm disappointed with them, I am getting one remarked though so I hope it goes up. Sorry if I seemed a little sharp I'm just so deflated. Could I purse a good career with those grades granted a levels go well?

Definitely.

GCSE's mean nothing and if you put the work in at A-level, them grades are all that matter. 👍
