    They may just be proud of there grade because they worked hard for it? I know it can get annoying but it's not going to kill you.

    To be honest, i don't know what you want me to say. Some people just like to tell people how they have done and you should just be happy for them, or you could make the savage move of telling them that it's not an A* ahaha . That one usually shuts them up.

    Some people want to say what they got because well they are proud of themselves and well they worked hard for it, i mean yes it can be irritating and annoying but for the time being let them have their time in the sun.

    The point I want to make is that I could be in someone's class for 2 years they only come to me and actually give me attention and realise I exist when they want to show off and make others feel bad if things go bad for you for some reason.I just think it would be nice if people spoke to me for reasons other then to brag.

    Your achievements make them feel insecure in themselves, take it as a compliment

    People show pride in different ways, I never liked the straight-A* students who would **** over their straight-A* results that they knew they were gonna get and post "Oh I guess all my hard work paid off didn't it!! SO PROUD!! x" on Facebook with their 800 likes and their 100 comments (I'm not salty at all.. no..). I once got a D in a History module and almost snapped my phone in half when I was looking through all the posts of people saying they got A*s and 95 UMS. To be fair I showed them when I got A* in the retake of the module .

    Really the best thing to do is just ignore them, there's no point getting so worked up about it. Trust me telling people who like to show pride externally that they're showing off too much will probably just make their head twice as large and they'll show off even more.

    Maybe you should get more A*s, and make sure people know about it, then they won't brag to you (since they'll think you'll bring up your better results and make them feel bad).

    Works for me and my 999A*s

    Legally change your name to be the same as theirs, then claim you got an A* too.
