    In school people were always competing with each other academically to be the best in the class.... does this happen at uni ? do other people know or ask for your grades or does everyone just kind of do their own thing?

    I think the only time I'm asked about my grades is after we've all received marks back from an assignment. Other than that, it's not mentioned.

    I think it is pretty competitive though. I certainly feel very competitive about such things, but perhaps its not as salient in the minds of others.

    It's less likely to occur because of the size of the lectures. But by all means find similar people and do whatever you want.

    of course, everyone wants to do well, but there's less competitiveness than at school, imo

    I am quite competitive but I have found that most people do not talk about it. About the only time some one will ask about your grades is if they are picking up their work at the same time; most people have their own expectations so it is rather pointless to say you are better because you received a higher mark - they probably wrote on a completely different topic too so how could you compare yourself?

    Not really, yes you compare grades to your friends, but just do your best, if you do your very best then be proud of whatever you got
