    I like my friends. It's just I hate that feeling when they do sooo much better than you.
    It really gets to me and stresses me out, What could I do. Please don't suggest to revise with them.

    I use to know how you feel.
    But think about it this way:
    Other people's grades dont hinder how well you do. Just because they do well doesnt mean you cant too. Everyone has different capabilities and the only person you should compete with is yourself. Try to do better than you did the last time, dont try to do as good as or better than others. You're working towards your future and they're working towards their's.
    Get rid of the mindset about caring about how well other people are doing: thats good for them but it doesnt affect you. Dont be ashamed of what grades you get either, the more you're confident about it(good or bad) the less people will care if you dont do well. You're not going to do amazing in every test you do. Just aim to get the best grade YOU can at the end of the year when it really counts.

    How do you act if you do better than your friends?
    If you did badly and your friends did really well how would you like them to go about it? Not question? Say it alrighty?

    Education is a personal journey. Focus on how to better yourself, and do not worry about how others do.
