    No, I go to a grammar school, everyone's clever.
    I got 7A*s and 4As at GCSE, a fair bit above average but not brilliant for my school. I end up feeling stupid most of the time in chem and maths.

    Not good results but bad results in primary school. Oh my "friends" called me names all day after the teacher said our results on a test.

    So you take Chem and Maths at A-level.

    Never happened through lower school as my grades were eclipsed by some absolute geniuses, however after they left to go to other colleges it does does seem that people always are like "wooaw so clever." Pisses me off sometimes but I do have a social life and plenty of friends, and I just tend there to sit and smile if any results/achievements get called out so it's never "bigheaded."

    I found it well good, because I'd never been particularly special during my 5 years in secondary school, so to get in the top 20 in the school was pretty awesome!

    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
    Did you get an A*, or are we dreaming hypothetically here?

    I wouldn't be embarrassed about having a good grade read out. I'd be embarrassed about the teacher sharing the bad grades with everyone.

    I don't feel bad for having better grades than others.
    "What? You spent several hours a day playing Xbox/ going out with your mates/ etc.? When you were doing that, I was working for my A-levels."
    Please.

    OOOOOH poor you! How utterly awful it must be to havegood grades?! Gosh, I REALLY do sympathise that you did well acheived something.
    For goodness sake, get the f*** over it and stop saying how life would be easier if you were dumb. It bloody wouldn't, and you know it. So it may be a bit awkward in front of people with worse grades; well it's a hard life and then you die, sonny. If you really cared about it, then you would stop ebing dedicated and lower your grades. At least you have that choice.
    You're just fishing for compliments! Stop feeling so bloody special, loads of people get A*s. People like you need to shut up and grow a bloody beard.

    I know how you feel. In my English lessons I usually get A* whilst my classmates get Cs, Ds and Es. My friends then scrub it in and say that I suck up to my teacher. They persistently call me "plagiariser" and there was this one boy who wouldn't stop reminding me that I got an A*. Obviously he did this sarcastically. He also tried to exclude me from everything. Nonetheless there are some people that congratulate me and ask for my help, which I am always applicable for I'm very modest about getting high grades. I never boast about it because I feel guilty and arrogant. However it does satisfy me when people hate on me, because it shows I'm doing something right.

    It probably worse when everyone expects you to get A* and you don't.

    I got five As in my highers this year and obviously was really pleased, smiling whenever someone said well done and that, but my friend made a comment about how weird it was that I was "so calm about it". But if I'd gone on and on about how brilliantly I'd done, I'd have sounded big headed and everyone would have *****ed about it.

    Can't win.

    Are you in high school or college? Just ride it out till sixth form and hopefully it'll get better. You'll only be amongst people who are (hopefully) serious about their education.

    That happened not that often at my school, and when you get to A-levels, it's totally the other way round, definetly at my school again, because all the dumbsh*ts left
    ...Except for me...I wish I was A grade material 0.o
