Why do so some people feel entitled to good A-level and GCSE grades? I know a lot of people who feel they deserve good grades (A,A*) even though they haven't studied or worked hard to get them. They are the ones who are always disappointed with their grades and blame the teachers or class for their bad marks. Why do they have such a weird mentality?

How do you know they haven't revised hard? Normally those who expect good grades, are the ones who have tried absolute hard for the test. My friend, for example, is a bit weak in studies but revised super hard because she wants an A in maths, although I'm not sure she'll get it after listening to her post-exam. So you tell me, does she not feel entitled to get a good grade?

I also used to think that it was the arrogance that could lead them to believe they could get good grades without doing s***

I'm not talking about those who ACTUALLY put in the work. I'm talking about those who don't do anything and expect amazing out comes. I know that they haven't revised because they say so themselves, and the test grades and mock exams we so in class confirm that. Yet somehow when they get they get their report card or exam grades they are shocked.

If you have done that much revision you really do deserve great grades, and I'm pretty sure you will get them

If I was to get the grades I deserved I'd probably fail A Level. I know people who work really hard to get a C and are always gutted when they just fall short.

They think they're smarter than they really are. Some people just don't need to put in the work though, I got plenty of hate when I acted like that then actually got the good grades.

I suppose you get people who study hard for their exams, work their arses off and they hope that their hard work will pay off and they'll achieve good grades. I've worked as hard as I can but my abilities only go so far so I'll be surprised if I get any A's, let alone A*'s. I know someone who works her arse off and I think she's entitled to good grades.

But I guess you get others who see themselves as better than others and have no reason to study as hard as them. Then they get angry and disappointed if they didn't get the grades that they were expecting.

I can understand if people blame their teachers for a good reason though. I had a bad physics teacher who didn't even teach all of the criteria that my class had to be taught. As a result, the classes that he taught were a module behind by the time our new physics teacher took over, and we had to teach ourselves that final module and rush the one that we had been learning just before the exams.

Exams can often feel like that. The most important thing to remember is that you did your best and put in the work

Aww lol
I have a loads of things that push me to revise that much.


1) My parents think i'm dumb.. because i like to look after my body (manicures, facials etc...)
2) They always say my sister is smarter, because she doesn't care about her body

3) My parents underestimate me, and will kill me if i fail.

4) I want to be a midwife.
5) I like studying but i'm not geek lmao :P

A lot of pupils think that somehow you can get an A in an exam. It's not exactly true. You get an A by being an A student right from the beginning of the course, understanding what is needed to reach that standard, and continually evaluating yourself against the same benchmark. A C student very rarely gets an A in an exam.
