What I got for my GCSEs 2018

Hello everyone,

I asked on Twitter and Instagram on whether you all would like to know what I got for my GCSEs and the majority of you guys said yes so, here it is!

First of all, I’m honestly so happy that I passed everything. Everyone’s success is relative so if I am upset with a grade, I have every right to be and I am not trying to boast in any way.

Also, those who received their results today, congratulations!! You should definitely be super proud of yourself no matter what you got.

Grades I was really happy with

  • Graphics: A
  • English Literature 7 (A)
  • ECDL Microsoft: Distinction (A)
  • Geography: 6 (B)
  • Art & Design: 6 (B)
  • Biology 6 (B)
  • Chemistry 5 (C)
  • Physics 5 (C)

I am so happy with these grades because I was expecting to get these results for all of these except for science because I did better on them than I expected. I thought that I was going to get 4’s because I was getting either 4’s or U’s in mocks (because I was doing higher so I couldn’t get grades 1-3). I did ECDL last year and am happy with that.

Grades I’m ok with

  • English Language: 4 (Standard C)
  • Mathematics: 6 (B)
  • Business: B

At first, I was really disappointed with Eng Lang because I was expecting a 6 or 7 and I got a 4 so that was really disheartening. For maths, I consistently got 7s, hence why I was a little annoyed but, looking back, I struggled so badly with paper 1 (and skipped so many questions) so I’m alright with a 6. For business, the controlled assessment let me down because I got a B and it averaged to that (I really wanted an A). The teacher didn’t help much and I made everything up on that controlled assessment, haha. So I’m not too mad at that because a B is still pretty good.

Once I got home, I was so happy because, at the end of the day, I passed everything and I don’t have to retake anything. Overall, I got 3A’s 5B’s and 3C’s and I am genuinely proud of myself.

So I hope you all liked this post (I love reading and watching GCSE results posts/videos). If you received your results, I would love to know what you got and/or how it went! Have a great day everyone xx

    Aw so you should be proud of those results!! You’ve done amazingly well! I was slightly disappointed in my english literature as I got a 5 but it’s still a strong pass I suppose and I think just in general the teachers didn’t know what to expect on how the examiner would mark them and what they were looking for as our year was the first for the new exams! I think they have been surprised at how hard these exams have been! I’m just so relieved to have passed everything too! WOOO! Congratulations again lovely, those results are amazing xxx

      Thank you Amelia! Don’t worry about your English grade because they were very harsh and the teachers at my school were quite shocked. A lot of people who were predicted to pass didn’t pass which I thought was so unfair! I’m just so glad that it’s all over. Congrats again to you too lovely! You did amazing too xxx

    You should be so proud of those grades! You did amazing and worked so hard! I’ve seen a lot of people be disappointed with English Language and get like 6s+ in their mocks and then 4s or something around that in the exam. I think the marking has been a wrong or it is an error! Xx

      Thank you so much Eden! I just found the English Language grade really strange but there’s nothing I can do about it because if I get it remarked, I’m scared the grade will go down. Congrats on your grades! I’m sure you did fantastic xxx
