    I know the forums are flooded with crappy topics by annoying perfectionists with terrible neurosis so i thought i'd add to it.

    my results were DBBAAAAA*A*A*

    pretty good, i was very happy, but that D is really annoying.

    i got it in a little known subject called Systems Control... electronics, basically. the story behind it is a good one, but skip the next paragraph if you dont want to hear inane rambling.

    my teacher insulted my parents once so from then on i had a vendetta against him, so i refused to do his coursework ( i know, how clever am i ? ) so he turns up at my house to collect it, i scream at him to .. eff off and get off of my property, at school the next day he made a big deal out of me being such an idiot, saying i think im such a big man throwing away marks and that im just being a spoilt brat. so i took a hammer to my coursework in front of the class, and said 'thats how much i care about your subject'

    so, unsurprisingly, i got a D. i did really well in the exam considering i didnt go to any more lessons, got a 0 on my coursework and didnt revise, lol. but yeah, is this D going to haunt me? can i just cut it off, never list it on my results sheets? because i did more GCSEs than most people, it won't be missed, will it?

    what im trying to say is can i just tell people my results without mentioning the D? will universities somehow find out? when they say 'list your results' will i HAVE to list the D?

    thanks in advance and i hope i didnt bore you <3

    A 'D' is nothing to be ashamed of.
    We all make mistakes. I got a 'U' in my D&T GCSE.

    You just don't tell people :p:

    You should be bloody happy you got a C after getting 0 for coursework (I presume in subjects like Systems and Control the subject that the coursework is weighted heavily).

    And as the person above me said, just don;t tell anyone about your D.

    No, don't worry about your D at all. Yes, you will have to list on your University application, but I doubt it will affect your application at all, if so, VERY minutely.

    A D's no big deal in an obscure subject. I got a C in Systems and Control and I do electronics at Uni...

    My teacher didn't help us or teach anything at all in the 2 years of GCSE though and has since been restricted to teaching year 7, 8 and 9. All I remember was him relating a Darlington pair to a pair of breasts... :confused:
