    I just have to point out the correlation between your A-Levels and your repellence.
    uber-lollage Do my results indicate a capacity to repel? How insightful. Go home and stay there.

    about the same.
    8A* 2As at GCSE
    4As, and A in A2 in year 12. Wished id get slightly better module results - but i was happyish with them.

    People peak at different times/get bored with the education system/have other factors affecting them etc. So its different from person to person

    AABC at A level so I was a little dissapointed :/

    I got 2 A*s, 2 As, 6 Bs and a D (in PE) for my GCSEs. I got ABCC for my AS's the first time round. I resat a psych module to bump one of those Cs up to a B, so I got ABBC overall for my AS grades (and ABB for my A2s) So, no, they were pretty much on the same level.

    Er, according to gradeinfo I should have got AAAe but because I did 5 subjects, I still managed to get the points that they guessed I would, but with worse grades. So...Not really shocking, no. A Level results were disappointing but not shocking.

    Quite the contrary (but it depends on how highly you value an A2 in Year 11).

    Other way round for me; I didn't do that well at GCSE but have an AS average of over 95%.

    My results seemingly improved GCSE to AS Level
    GCSE: 3x A* 4x A 2xB
    AS Level: AAAAB

    The essay format of AS suited me much better than the more Q&A style of GCSE.

    GCSEs...I was kinda expecting the grades that I got (7A* 2A to start with) but not in the subjects I got them in. Was hoping for A*s in 3 sciences, maths, French, Latin, As in the Englishs and RS could've been anything. Wasn't shocked by the A in Bio, but I was disappointed, and I was pretty shocked with the A* in RS as I thought the exam went badly. A* in English...was pleasing, but I thought the exam went well.

    As for AS, I was shocked at how high my Economics mark was, especially the full UMS in the 1st module. Especially surprised at the fact it was my 2nd highest of the 4. Maths...not surprised it was my highest, though I know I could've done even better (don't get my wrong, I'm not disappointed with my marks!). Biology, about what I expected, Chem...was hoping for higher UMS, but nevermind. So not much shocking stuff, but hey.

    And now I probably sound really arrogant for not being shocked at getting straight As at AS and mostly A*s at GCSE...and maybe I am.
