    Yeah they asked all the time when I was at home, not so much now I'm in uni, but then they don't know when they are lol

    Yes,and I always give the same answer,the went fine even if it actually didn`t since my parents will make a big deal of it.Even when I say I made some silly mistakes,they go berserk.
    This is exactly my problem too, I always say they went fine otherwise my parents go crazy and I can have no peace of mind. But I've heard that my friends's parents bug them to revise and take their phones and stuff, my parents don't care what I do in regards to revision as long as I get a good result in the end.

    My mum never really cared too much about exams I've done. Even if I did bad or good, she never really seemed to mind. My dad on the other hand really goes mad over exams I take. He'll lose his crap if I get lower than a B in any A-Level or GCSE :P (and even if I get a B, he expects an A).

    My parents always ask if I haven't told them already; they're really involved. I usually call my mum after the exam and tell her how it went and I'm usually quite detailed haha, if it went badly i'll usually rant to her. Although they expect nothing less than an A, they're pretty understanding because they know it was the best that I could do.

    My parents don't really ask or if they do I start talking and they just blank out so I don't bother saying a lot and just say "it went fine/okay" 😂
