Grades below a C are not a fail, they are a pass. If you get a D, E, F or G in any of your GCSEs this year, don't fret, you won't have failed your course. Employers recognise these grades and loads of college courses state that they accept D-G marks for entry.

C is the average pass. Anything above C is above average. There are plenty of those though, who don't think C is a good pass at all.

Sorry.

Anything below C means that you are of below average intelligence. If you can't get a C in GCSE then you are NOT intelligent.

when most employers/unis say five good passes. they mean 5A*-C.

Therefore it is taken as general concensus that anything below a c is infact a fail - i understand its not but everybody see it that way.

and you will infact find that many (not all just a fair percentage - by no means all - but you are limiting your options) jobs these days will ask for 5 gcses - they mean A8-C

I know someone who refuses to believe that I have 12 GCSEs. 11 of my GCSEs were grades A-C but I got a D in Physics. She says that I failed Physics. Silly git.

My ''mate'' only needed 2 D's to get onto a beauty course she wanted to do

they're not fails, they're just not the best are they, I mean C minimum is acceptable to appreciate i'd say.

If someone put anything lower than a GCSE C grade on their CV and it came across my desk I would bin it immediately as belonging to someone who was deluded.

I thought D was average now? E was average at my school

GCSEs are not indicative of intelligence in general, but getting below a C certainly is.

Your school average may prove your school is full of people of low intelligence, not that average intelligence is at said level.

Grades aren't really a true indicator of intelligence, my brother got mostly D's and E's and he's smarter than me!
