    So, you were predicted 10A*..you open the envelope and to your dismay, you get lower results..what were you expecting personally?
    I was predicted 9A* and 2As.
    I'm hoping for 4A*s, 4A's and 2Bs.
    In the worst case scenario that I can possibly imagine (as GCSE's are easy) I'd get 2A*, 6As, 3Bs.

    What does everyone else feel is suitable to expect, compared to what they were predicted?
    My predicted was around the same as yours, & my real results were what you're 'hoping for' :P (unfortunately i did double science so it counted as 2 Bs)

    I have a feeling you'll do better than that though, I honestly never felt like my predicted was within reach.

    My mum just said straight Bs would be a bad set of results....ahhhh!
