I said 'no' because I actually did better than all of my friends except one. If you don't include ICT, we got the same grades but in different subjects. She did GNVQ Intermediate and got Distinction/AAAA, whereas I did AVCE and got a D. Anyway, I've never felt pressure from parents, my brother, my friends or my teachers to do well; my problem is that I put pressure on myself.

I myslef have sometimes felt the need to exceed my best friend, although I know it would never happen as he got 4 A levels (the only one in the school who did I believe) and got AABB, whereas I got CDE. (just to clarify, he did not do 'easy subjects' rather Maths, physics, ICT and electronics).

I got the highest A level grades in all 3 of my classes... keeping this up is very hard and I do feel pressured.

I think that it's good though. Sometimes I need a kick up the backside to get my arse into gear.

This threads a bit old, isn't it?

I really couldn't give a , i have friends who are alot better than me (academic), yet those who are alot worse. I don't compete. For some reason people always ask me if im under pressure to perform as well as my brother, what they fail to realise is that i realise and always have done that i'm no where near the same as him, i'm far better at english and classic subjects than he is, yet he's far better at Maths, Physics etc. Just chill, who cares, if they're real friends why should it matter?
