Well done guys, be proud. I totally fucked mine up all those years ago (I got an EEU) and I've always wished I'd retaken them. I still think I should go back for another shot but now I'm all old and shit, it costs more money.
That said, I till got into uni, but I'm pretty much the poster boy for 'don't do drugs at school' now. I was caned as fuck every day, could barely function most of the time.
My brother has just finished his first year at Uni - this time last year, he was gutted - he got ACC in Maths, Physics and Graphics, but he was expected AAA (not sure what he got for his two AS levels). But it was enough for his uni place so he's fine.
I'm waiting 'til next week for my GCSE results - expected all As and A*s but I know at least one or two won't live up to that. Ahh well, I only need 5 Bs and 5 Cs to get into college, so I'll be fine.
Congratulations to all on A Levels, the news said they were record highs?
Like 619, I'm awaiting this coming Tuesday for my GCSE results. Not as much of a big deal as A Levels, but still pretty huge if I don't want to work at Tesco for the rest of my life. (Nothing against Tesco workers, but it's not really my life plan.)
Naw the required grades are usually BS. I needed AAB for my uni and I got in with ABC. Those are good grades though, congrats. Also just saw your AS level post. aaahh you should not worry at all. You can easily move that B up to an A with A2. I did the same for maths. Though I killed the A2 exams. If A* was around 2 years ago I would've got that.
also congrats to the others who got into uni.
and good luck to the GCSE people above.
The inaugural Political Discussion Thread began as just an experiment and the thread ended up reaching over 5,000 posts!
Here we are in Thread #2 or Round 2 to talk about what you shouldn't talk about with family at the dinner table, everyone's favorite topic: politics.
So get ready, because...
Fame, status, even wealth... People place more artificial meaning and importance on these things than they should, and the world as a whole is worse off for it. Add looks, success, etc. to the list as well.
Does anyone else ever get so goddamn tired of how stupid people are as a whole? Like...
Vive la France :cheer
Good. It seems the French have finally figured out that tolerating someones intolerance in the name of tolerance itself ... is a bad idea. Sometimes it's downright deadly. That certainly took long enough.
I think that foreign Imams should be carefully monitored and that...
Thought I would make a thread asking a question that many of us may not have even considered or thought about. A friend of mine asked me as a what-if question, and it actually had me thinking for a minute. Of course, this is for those that HAVE graduated High School already, in which I'm...
