    I finished my GCSE`S and am waiting for the results but I was quite confident at the time that I would pass but now as results day is only a week away I am dying like literally. I have such a strong feeling I am going to fail everything, I dont mind telling my parents my results even if I fail, its extended family and friends I dont want to tell, aunties uncles e.t.c also I have a clever cousin who did her GCSE`S as well and I know 100% that she is going to get all A* and I am not that bad my predicted grades are B`s and a couple of A`s but still I need a good excuse to tell people when they ask about my results please help...

    You say "I don't want to tell you". There. Case closed.

    (Honestly, at the end of the day it's your business and your business alone. If you don't want to tell anybody, you can say it exactly like that).

    Just say 'I got what I needed' - there is no need to tell people the grades you got. They are YOUR results ...

    Its none of their business. Just say you did well but anything else leave them guessing. You don't need to please anyone. Just do what makes you happy. I personally like to say the truth. But from my experiences in life some people enjoy seeing others suffer

    Same, I was uncomfortable with telling my family the grades I got because I have a cousin in the same year as me and she's really smart. It was something I couldn't hide and like expected my mum did compare me to my cousin.

    If I were you I'd just say "I'd pass" or "I got the grades I needed"

    Say I don't really wanna talk about it and look really awkward and glum, make them feel awkward for asking you. No one wants to be in an awkward subject so they'll just change the subject

    Oh yh I love my mum, she'd never humiliate me, neither would my dad, its just that my dad used to compare me to my cousin I hope he doesn't so that again

    I get what you mean, where you have no choice but to stay silent and listen otherwise ur just being rude theres not much anyone can do about it, i just have to deal with it , unfortunately
