    'Woohoo look at me I got 4 A's at AS doing less work than at GCSEs arent I good'

    Yeh brilliant, go brag to someone who cares dude. Concentrate on how you do and not how everyone else does, because to put it bluntly, no one gives a **** how you did.

    It's weird with me. I got 4A* 5A and 2B for GCSE which I think is amazing. I only managed to get BBBBC for my AS-levels. I worked really hard for them and that's what I got. It's no wonder I didn't get into med school this year. But I did work hard, and now I am working even harder trying to get those B's up to A's, but I'm finding it really hard.

    Not being egoistical or anything, but I'm the kind of guy who is pretty good at most things. I'm not amazing at anything in particular, but can do a whole range of things pretty well. This is probably why I'm not doing as well as people think I should be at A-level. They are so indepth for each individual subject, and I just cant hack it! University will be a scary place! That is even more indepth!! Argh!!

    I also was "advised" to do certain A-levels to get into Med school (ie, Maths and Physics) which I despise and am not doing very well in. I wanted to do Music and French, but was told not to. Maybe if I had done those, I would have gotten better marks. You never know, stranger things have happened.

    Exams suck. That's all I can think at the moment. Evil things! :mad:

    How come many ppl have had like amazing GCSE grades...i.e 8a* 3A....and then only managed AAAB at AS level? i got 6A 3B at GCSE....and AAAAB at AS level...but worked a hell of a lot harder for GCSEs.........
    Because at AS Level the class sizes are smaller and people are generally more bothered about their education.
