See what I did there

Based on everything I would give myself a C

Depends on the subject really. Probably a B overall

A good B

Rummikub Sat 09-Jan-21 20:22:44

A but an underachiever

Exam clever? Life skills clever? Emotionally clever? Depending on the area I range from an A* to a fail.

C ish. As an average.
A in science things
U in people stuff

Like skills clever- ungraded
The subject I teach hopefully A*

TweeterandtheMonkeyman Sat 09-Jan-21 20:25:13

B overall. Unless we count Maths , in which case a C!

I’m academically very clever and well qualified but away with the fairies most of the time, no practicality or common sense about me. grin

fantasmasgoria1 Sat 09-Jan-21 20:27:52

I guess it would depend in what area. I guess a B.

ScrapThatThen Sat 09-Jan-21 20:28:11

I'm a solid high B low A kind of person. Replicated through almost every exam or qualification I have ever taken.

ScrapThatThen Sat 09-Jan-21 20:28:37

Maybe A* with grade inflation 😁

Hyvsvaar Sat 09-Jan-21 20:47:16

A c without studying

Babymamaroon Sat 09-Jan-21 20:50:03

I'd say A tbh.

dingoesatemybaby Sat 09-Jan-21 20:51:11

B. Maybe B+ if I'm not tired

zeitgeista Sat 09-Jan-21 20:52:49

c in exams, possibly a b+ in things i actually like doing (music, languages etc) because i'm bad at focusing and actually getting on with things.

bearlyactive Sat 09-Jan-21 20:54:03

Academically, A, but U in life skills (except cooking, in which I'd say B).

Love51 Sat 09-Jan-21 20:54:45

B+ but people are notoriously bad at assessing themselves.

Winederlust Sat 09-Jan-21 20:56:21

I'd say i could be an A if I really applied myself but probably more of a B in terms of actual effort i put in.

StormBaby Sat 09-Jan-21 20:56:23

A-B for most things. I got those grades back in the day anyway and I’m definitely more grounded and worldly wise now. And I have a degree now. I still hate maths though

Winederlust Sat 09-Jan-21 20:57:20

A* in random useless facts though, which probably brings my average up.

Faith50 Sat 09-Jan-21 20:59:00

D - Not academic at all. Terrible GCSEs meant I could not study A levels. Managed to get to university via an alternative route of study.

I have a lot of common sense and emotional intelligence but I will never be a doctor, lawyer basically any job that requires straight A student types.

I am in a management role now due to sheer determination.
