    I love to use TSR to find threads on upcoming exams and having a chat with people about them.

    Recently, I've been browsing through some and it's just full of people going:
    "Yeah, I got A*s on the first unit. 100%. I got 99% on Maths so I'm retaking. Yeah, revise like this, trust me, I got full marks it works"

    I just get irritated when people flaunt their marks in your face without considering people may have got worse. I mean, these type of threads are here to discuss exams and not grades. It just irritates me. I mean, sure, if it comes up you can obviously talk about it. But sometimes it feels people just bring it up to raise their self esteem.

    I guess it's their right to be proud of their marks
    But yeah sometimes I fee like that (most of the time),
    I guess it's what our society is like.
    There are some people who like to keep to themselves, which is perfectly fine, but then there are others ;D
    ...there are ALWAYS going to be those other people who like to show off xD
