    Does anyone else find it abit embarasing or uncomfortable when the teacher decides it is a good idea to:

    A) Read out everybodys results out loud; some people get F's, some people get C's ... and then theres you who gets an A*...everybody turns around to stare at you for what seems like forever, with daggers in their eyes, I find it very embarrasing.

    B) Puts up everybodys results on the board, ''OMG XXX GOT AN AYE STARRR'' then again the whole class stares at you forever

    C) Singles you out and announces to everyone that ''BOB DID VERY GOOD HE GOT AN A* WELL DONE BOB'' everyone calls you a teachers pet.


    D) Tell the WHOLE YEAR GROUP AT ASSMELBY ABOUT YOUR FANTASTIC RESULTS, 400 STUDENTS+TEACHERS STARE AT YOU THROUGH THE REST OF ASSEMBLY

    Funny thing is if you celebrate everyone thinks your a big head and a jackass. If you dont say anything they think you're an uptight B**** so I just tend to smile.

    Guess its just that I hate being the centre of attention, but I get dragged in due to my grades.

    Life would be so much easier and simpler if I was dumb, I envy them from time to time

    I have a friend who got 100% on a history test once and cried because she didn't want people to think she was a geek because nobody else had done that well xD

    I got the best GCSE results out of all the boys in my year, full marks in my History, Ethics and Literature coursework at GCSE and then 4A*'S and 8A's.
    and then 100% in humanities,
    Then I got full marks in my literature AS exam.

    I love the fact that everyone knows, and i'm not shamed by it.


    I'm not the "typical geek", so it's nice that people know I get good results, care about my work but also have a sense of humour and a social life.

    My tutor asked for my predicted grades it front of everyone, felt like a jackass.

    Its a small price to pay for actually having the grades though, so cant complain!

    Really? I never remember getting that response, I got on with a lot of people and I never felt ashamed or embarrased. And this is in a school where yesterday a parent threatened numerous children while holding a baseball bat and then at the end of the day proceeded to attack one.

    EDIT: Mind you, my response was usually 'very pleased'. Don't shout out about it or act like a ****, everyone hates that, but no normal person will be pissed off with you if you are pleased with what you got.

    Yeah, this, exactly this. Everyone was impressed and happy for whoever did best - except one girl who insisted she was better than everyone else and hated me and my full mark English essays - and it was exactly this type of school, pretty dodgy area, crumbling building...

    I think it was generally accepted that it's good to be smart and work hard.

    This always happened to me, particularly in Science because I was good at it. It got to the point where I asked him to give me my results separate because I was sick of people making a big deal about it.
    I got mine in private and they all made a big deal about the smart guy in the class who lapped up the attention.

    Never happened in my school. Perhaps a bit of banter and a pat on the back if someone got top marks in an especially hard paper. You just go to a ****** school where no one appreciates their education.

    Yeah to be honest (although we never get it 'announced'). It's embarrassing when people ask you when you're around other people because the other people already know but you've got to say your results again with sort of no emotion or surprise. No other emotion is allowed. Only surprise :p: It's awkward.

    We used to have a leader board, and every two weeks the school would update the board and it had everyone's name in the year group on. For about a half term I was number 2 ('twas not possible to beat number 1 :no: or at least no one ever did :p:) and everyone called me swot :sad:

    Where are you from, Yorkshire?

    I just ignore it.
    yes, people do come from Yorkshire, what's wrong with Yorkshire? You starting on Yorkshire? because trust me we Yorkshireans are a pretty tough bunch. So if you don't want a knock on your door from Alan Bennet in the middle of the night, I wouldn't start on Yorkshire.
    There's a lot of us
    We could be a seperate country you know.
    Plus we have an awesome accent.
    oh and we invented the Yorkshire pudding.
    So end of.
    Thanks
