Are my grades good for a gcse year 9 student Watch
English Lit- 7
English Lan- 6
But only around 3% of students taking that subject exam get a 9 so getting two makes you the best that year in those particular subject. 9s are created to distinguish between very good and excellent students
That 3% of 00k (maths and english entries) is 15000 students. Relative to the original amount it's good but that can only be considered good if you are comparing yourself to the main population rather than a strata of higher achieving students. OPs results being 'good' or not relies entirely on what they want to do and to whom they wish to be compared to. For example in my year getting 2 9s was considered dismal but 5+ was deemed good.
in the top 3% of 100 students or 15000 students is good
The OP title says, “Are my grades good for a gcse year 9 student?” So clearly they are comparing themself to the main population, but don’t let that stop you showing off.
