9 x A*

Nobody in school needs to be taught it, I'm a welsh speaker, was taught in welsh and spoke it at home, but I know forcing kids to take it is ridiculous

I know the kids can only sit the exams put in front of them, but it seems crazy that the overall pass rate can be 98.5% and the A* to C rate is 68.8% Rolling Eyes

It certainly does.

I didn't do as expected in my GCSE's, or A Levels. I didn't get into the university I wanted - but managed to get on to a similar course elsewhere through clearing.

Once I got away from school a more independent learning/teaching style suited me, coupled with the fact that most employers don't care about GCSE or A Level results I am doing alright for myself - and a damn site better than a lot of my school friends whose results were infinitely better than mine.
