    Shocking, yes.

    GCSE, 6A*s and 6As, then AS, ACCD. Bit of a difference there. :P

    Once of the Cs was only because I got aau in the modules though, and the other was because we did the whole AS level maths by January and I just wasn't good enough at maths to handle that.

    And I just failed Physics.

    It was shocking for me as well!
    GCSE: A*A*AAAAAAABBC (I have got to say that I took GCSE on my 2nd year living in UK, coming from a totally different country where English is not the first nor the second language! ... I thought I have to mention that :rolleyes: )
    AS:AABCCD :eek3:
    Both Cs (2 marks off B) in the subjects that are important for me ! and D in Maths! (definitly not for me!)
    Hopefully the January exams results will be much better to boost up my grades!

    Too early to say really. Got 7A* 3A 1B at GCSE, so far I have a biology ISA at Grade C. :/ In that exam, there were few if any questions where I thought: "Darn, no idea what they're on about!", so I'm thinking it's probably just accuracy or missing small marks here and there. But I'm determined to do well: hopefully I'll still be thinking that way after my module results next week! D:

    GCSE: A*A*A*AAAAAAAAB
    AS: ACDD

    Not surprised about AS. Two Ds were in Physics and General Studies and I'm taking neither next year, and they didn't include ICT (I do OCR Nationals and I'm working at a distinction). A was in French, C was in English Lit which is being remarked (AQA. sigh.)

    I did better than I should've I think. At GCSE I got
    A*AAAAABBBBC, and that's with a B in French, A in Art and A in English Lit.

    For my AS' I was predicted BB in English Lit. and Art, and CC in Philosophy and French.
    I ended up with AABB with the A's in Philosophy and French, which is the same as my friend who got all A*'s at GCSE. Not a clue how it happened really.

    My results weren't shocking because I've generally enjoyed college (atmosphere and subjects) a lot more than school, so I expected, well, hoped, to do better at AS.

    I'm resitting part of one of those B grades because I was so close. The other two are what I'm dropping and General Studies. So hopefully, I'll end up with all As for uni.. :dontknow:

    GCSE: A*A*AABBBCCC
    AS: AABBB
