    "If you work hard enough you'll get 100% on every exam i expect no less" obviously all my attempts to lower parents' expectations of me in the past 10 years has been in vain

    "When I was your age, I got all A's in my exams. I did not speak to girls or go for parties. I stayed in my room and studied hard like a good child."

    I'm not allowed to listen to music while I'm studying. My phone has to be in the living room while I'm studying. They come into my room and check on me in intervals. They constantly keep asking me how my studying is going lol.

    I don't get much of 7, but I'm certain that exams (OCR maths) from 2008 or thereabouts are easier than 2014 or 15 papers. Not exactly the time period parents are referring to, but still...

    "Do well."

    That is literally the only thing I have gotten from my parents regarding exams.

    They want you to develop your 'genius.'

    Yeah, some parents are very strict with these restrictions. Once, I got a C in an impromptu class test and my mother made me study IN FRONT of her. It was one of the weirdest 2 weeks of my school life.

    Lol I guess so, I've also been told I will never be an A* student but haha I already have A*s.
    I've been asked to study in front of them too before but then they realised I couldn't focus there with them so I was let back into my room to study. However, they want the best for their offsprings so I get it but still not the best way to do it.

    hah. I had similar from my mum. "Are you really going to apply for a PhD and put yourself through all this stress again?" referring to my master's work.

    This came about three days after her rant of "you're so lazy, all you do is sit around all day doing nothing." Yeah.. glad a 20k word research project is "nothing"
    Haha wow, congrats though! Gosh I know the feeling! Im doing French now and I'll do it when I start University this year, and my mum seems to think that it should be easy for me or I shouldn't do it at all! They are the biggest hypocrites ever

    I am not sure if this prayer scares you or not but I know that the Arab moms tend to say it a lot during the exams " May god reward you for your hard work "
    Though I really work hard but when she says it I feels like I never opened a book xD
    OMG I CAN SO RELATE TO THIS

    my mum just prayed for me and said "May God help you pass your exams because of your hard work" and me over here on tsr like..:albertein::banana:

    Yes, they want the best for their offsprings. Hopefully we make them proud.

    "It's okay if you don't get the grades to get into Durham, there will be other universities you can go to!"

    I know they mean well but I really want to go to Durham and I'm excited to hopefully start there. It would CRUSH me if I didn't get in.
