    The bit in bold, I completely see where you're coming from! My parents encouraged me to do well all through school and I know they believe in me. I also know they would be proud of me for just doing my best even if I don't do as well as I'd hoped. Even so, my biggest fear in exams is letting them down, even though I've just rationally stated that I wouldn't be letting them down, as long as I try my best.

    fkasghdjsg It's annoying :lol:
    exactly! My dad keeps saying by keeping positive and trying my hardest, they can't ask for any more. But they sent me to a grammar school and sacrificed so much, plus my brother is at uni and doing really well. The thought of failing just seems like I've let them down. I talked to my mum about this and she said there are plenty of other options, and just because my brother has gone down the uni route doesn't mean I have to. I've just never considered anything else- I've, perhaps naively, always assumed that I would do well. Besides, I want to do well for myself! It's difficult because my dad left school at 15 and my mum only did urdu and business studies for a level and didn't want to continue so they don't mind. Very frustrating!
