I've been viewing this forum for the past few days and the arrogance of some people amazes me. It saddens to me to think that anyone interested in their education (which I assume is the major constituent part of this forum) would put themselves on such a pedestal and consider themselves better than the less academic of those around us. Some people on here have genuine fears about their future and are all too often getting their posts answered by statements such as, well I’ve already got marks x, y and z so I’m alright, or worse. Some threads are just being used as places for bragging about grades. Is it just me that sees this?

oi, why should people have to lie about what grades they already have. if people dont know the whole story then they cant offer advice.

the grades you get shouldnt b offensive. its the attitude behind them thats important.

All too much however the attitude that is supposed to support the grades is rather poor.

Me I like to post the answers to exams on here (hopefully correct although not arrogant enough to claim this, yet but I'm working on it). The reason? So people can get a feel for how they did on an exam rather than making them wait until August (plan for the future). Some people on seeing the answers are obviously happy and make it clear others are unhappy and they are comforted by a strong support network on here. While I take your point, frank (and if necessary sympathetic) honesty should not be misinterpreted as arrogance. Join us and you will see that we are all the friends you need. JOIN US JOIN US. THEY ALL FLOAT DOWN HERE

Occasionally you do bump into some little **** that wants to rub in the fact that he/she did better that someone at something. I choose to picture this person in the future......no friends.......no interests........a mansion filled with nothing......just a **** load of useless qualifications and a job they hate. Cheers me up no end!!!

Agree with mansandan's last post (very strongly).

Am willing to supply the obscure material providing I get paid for it.

Well there is a difference between arrogance for a reason, and arrogance for arrogance's sake. Some people are seen as 'arrogant' while they only see themselves as confident. Its all about perception really.

And most people agree though that qualifications aren't the beginning and end all. Its likely though that those who are obsessed with exams are likely to be more arrogant about them, because its important to them.
