    I hate it when you don't want to tell someone your grade and they automatically assume that it was a bad grade.

    whilst people have been talking about worst case scenarios .... mine is nothing to do with my results exactly but more if I get Good/REALLY good results and then I talk to someone I expected to do well and get an A8 etc but they got like a C/B and are really unhappy and then they ask what you got

    I don't really wanna tell people my results if I do really well because of fear of sounding cocky.

    I don't see why it's a problem, it's how you say it.

    I'm gonna say (if I get good grades)

    "Some good grades. I'm really happy actually, glad it's all over now..."

    Then if they ask specifics:

    "ummm, I passed them all, and I.got (list subjects with no A*) and A*s in the others"

    True, but I'll probably just forget that and sound arrogant. There is no way to say I got x amount of A*s and sound modest.

    My favourite way so far was a friend of mine a couple of years back who posted on Facebook:

    "Only managed one A at GCSE." (this was his status)

    After a few stunned replies, he commented: "The rest were A*s!"
