Journal Mattb90's Journal: The Results

I got my results yesterday, and for anyone interested, they are as follows:

English Language - AA (includes a grade for listening and speaking)
English Literature - A*
Maths - A*
Physics - A
Chemistry - A*
Biology - A
Geography - A*
History - A
German - B
Religious Studies - B
Statistics - A

All in all, I think I did well: 4 A*s, 5 As and 2 Bs (11 GCSEs).

I was surprised by English Literature (I got a B in the Yr10 exam and in the mock) and Geography (I didn't even finish the paper on this one!). I brought my Chemistry up from a mock B to A*, which is what I was aiming for, and I got my Maths A* as expected (its my specialist subject).

Do not simplify the design of a program if a way can be found to make it complex and wonderful.
