I'm responsible for releasing the GCSE results in my school. I got them yesterday! ;)

Our guys did wickedly! Much better than we predicted! It's an awesome day all round! (I'm here giving out the AS results to our early entries! :P)

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] August 27 2009 6:56 AM EDT

And GZ! 12 A*-C's is an awesome result! ;)

(Don't worry about German! :P)

Cool :) yeah the teachers always used to tease us in our school when they got the results a day early and we wasnt allowed them till the next day. Thanks :) But a language is a result ppl want nowadays, but ahh well. Not my strong point lol.

"Oh man, your German aquaintances must be really hungry" is what he got, probably >:)

I got 7 A-C grades, and was top male student for my year (girls always do better than boys...).

This year, some of our students were getting in excess of 12 A*-C grades (or equivalents), inlcuding the early GCSE's that sat two years ago, but not inlcuding the early AS/A Level's they have already taken (and passed).

When I did them I got 2 A's, 5 B's and 7 C's

Flamey August 28 2009 8:09 PM EDT

Still not understanding this british stuff. What grade are you in?

Colonel Custard [The Knighthood] August 28 2009 8:49 PM EDT

What the heck?

Well, I submitted my AP test results today and I'm getting 16 college credits for free.

FailBoat[SG] [Forever Alone] August 28 2009 8:57 PM EDT

Umm... What the heck is a GCSE?

Also, spell check dislikes the word of this testing thing.

Demigod August 28 2009 8:58 PM EDT

Congrats. Here in the states, our universities are supposed to be four years long, usually with about 18 credit-hours per semester. If those AP credits carry over like they do here, you would have just knocked out 1/8 of your college career before ever starting.

Demi, I am in America. I was just trying to ironically show off to Brits who wouldn't know what I was talking about.

So are these things like taking your N.E.W.T.s and O.W.L.s in Harry Potter?

Flamey August 29 2009 7:44 AM EDT

They may actually be OWLs, which makes sense. You do more subjects in the lower level on. Also I recall Gandy being a year or two younger than me.

Angel of Death [Hell Blenders] August 29 2009 8:06 AM EDT

a D in german? im disappointed in you mister white sir

Gandalf August 29 2009 8:55 AM EDT

haha OWLS's made me laugh. ^^

Not sure what GCSE's are compared to what the Americans take...

Yeah Flamey i think i am.. im 16, 17 In Sep.

In the UK we study for like 4 years heading towards the GCSE's in the 5th year we take tests in all the subjects. However some people take some GCSE's early like Maths i did in my forth year (year 10)

After this you can go to further education and do AS / Full A level courses for 2 years.. Then uni.

Just tried to clear it up for the people what didn't understand :)
