I'm in sixth form now. We've been friends since year 7 and gradually just got closer. I've always been apart of small friendship groups.
This one boy in particular is generally really nice and we get along great. For years I have found that SOMETIMES he acts differently when he is around different people. If it's just me and her then it's all fine. But if one other person or more is around then he will just say things aimed at me that are rude, like how he was in higher class sets than me for some subjects; despite me being in higher sets for different subjects.
Anyway, I recently changed one of my A Levels to a subject that he loved at GCSE but didn't meet the entry requirements. Because it's now the end of the term, the teachers were debating as to wether to let me on, I didn't 100% meet the requirements myself because I didn't get a B in Maths but the head of the department said it shouldn't be an issue. Ever since I told her that I'm switching, she has been extremely rude, bitter and clearly jealous, by picking up things that are invalid as to why I shouldn't switch, as to why this subject is harder, and that I can't do the subject at degree level for uni because you need XYZ grades and subjects - basically suggesting that I am either dumb or incompetent.
However, her father died a few weeks ago after being very ill and in hospital for a long time so she is obviously distraught over that. I've really supported her the best I could; keeping in mind that I am trying to get good A Level grades here!
If I confront her, and if possibly make new friends, I know I will come out looking like the bad one!
