    Keeping in mind that you're above average on a site for people who're specifically interested in their academic exploits, I'd say you did quite well. That being said, TSR is the place to go if you find you're congratulating yourself too much. (like me)

    I was disappointed when i got my results, and i thought that going on TSR would make me feel worse so i havent been on for 2 days, just untill the results hype went down...

    has anyone done the same or am i the only one
    Well I was the opposite of you. Expected a string of A's, B's and C's but instead got A*A*A*AAAAABC.

    I tried to resist but I was interested in knowing what others got. Bad move! :P
    I'm dissapointed for sure because I didn't put in enough effort in some CW and in the exams but overall, they're not bad and, without considering A-levels, I have met the requirements for the course I would like to study at Uni. 6 A's and 3 B's for me.

    Your results are excellent, congratulations! Possibly 'average - high' on the TSR scale but this is the internet and you have no idea whether or not people have added a few A*s onto their results and took a few Bs and Cs off :p: . Most people in reality would kill to have your results. One of my friends spent about 5 hours a day revising for GCSES (and he started a month early for revision) and spent a fortune a month for tutoring and only came out with 1 A* (short course subject) 3 As, 5 Bs and 2 Cs, he deserves so much higher for all the work put in but there you go.
    i guess life is like that though :yep:

    No, not you personally! Sorry if it came across as that. It's just loads of people are complaining how disappointed they are, but they did really well! It's quite annoying seeing people putting themselves down for no reason, and feeling disappointed with themselves. I was happy with my results - they're not straight A*/A's at all - and I just can't see why people feel the need to complain and feel so bad about their results when there are other people out there who maybe only just managed to get one or two passes, and are thrilled. :eek:

    TSR - evidently the place to go when you need your ego stroked.

    I know exactly how you feel. You won't get any sympathy here because you got 8A's and 1 A*, you will get the usual 'shut up you got good results', 'your results a fiiiiiine' but I know you feel disappointed. When I got my results I was happy, but when I found out I missed the next grade up in 5 subjects, I was disappointed and refrained from reading the results; I did the day after and it made me feel in the 'middle of the cream' rather then the 'creme de la creme' :P: Don't worry, you're not alone!
