Mine are in my profile

I don't really know why I'm joining this thread

You know everyone who answers will have disproportionately good grades, so it won't be a useful guide

I think this thread should be made 1 day after the 21st August 2008 instead of now becasue thats when us the GCSE class of 2008 get our gcse or gcse equivalency results.

Anything from not very (a C in English and Maths) to VERY (several A*s at Oxbridge/LSE etc. and As in Sciences for Medicine)

Really does vary.

Mine are in my profile...

I got 2As in English and Maths, which I took early, so that took the pressure off in the summer as they are the most important in the long run.

Don't fret too much though. So long as you get what you need to go to the college you want (if that is what you are doing) then you should be okay. The really fussy universities, GCSE grade wise, are places like Durham and a couple of the London ones. Most places don't really care so long as you pass (A*-C) in key subjects like English and Maths. If your college is like mine, where you have to get an A in the subjects you want to do, then there will be extra pressure but even fussy colleges let people in without it sometimes - they just want a full house really. And most colleges don't care - if you get a C in the subject they are happy.

Anyway, good luck everyone!
