    hey guys,
    I got AAD (B overall) in AS electronics as was wondering if it was worth mentioning the A's in my PS (for computer systems engineering - it's a bit like a fusion between electronics engineering and computer science), what do you guys think?

    No.

    Grades do not ever belong in your PS.

    Get them mentioned in your reference if you must, but they really should go in the education section.

    No - they go in the reference if they are going to be mentioned at all.

    my teacher refused to right it in my reference. Otherwise, there would be no way for unis to distinguish between someone who got 480/600 against someone (me) that got 488/500 in maths
