That's actually my biggest worry; I've already told myself that I won't be doing very well and I've almost accepted it. I just don't want to let my parents down, however.
What's the best way to tell them?
out right. dont beat around the bush just tell them. and tell them how you feel about it so hopefully they wont go on and on about it
I wish my parents would use the conditional at least once when talking about university instead of constantly going "So when you go to university in september, you need to..."
If I don't get the grades for my first choice my Mum will make out like I did it just to spite her!
Wow, you guys don't have very forgiving parents...surely if you've worked as hard as you can then they'll be happy for you?
Yeah I know what you mean ergo...I'm kind of in the same situation with Physics I reckon. I could have gotten an A I think, but I really bombed in the synoptic paper, so I think it'll be a B. But I'd already told my parents after the exam that it might have cost me the A. If my dad makes the 'Why did you get a B?' 'joke' about physics if I do get a B, I'll whack him one because it'll really annoy me, lol.
I'd jump off a cliff...im sure they'll guess why
ok now seriously...i'd just tell them...sure they'd keep going on about it for ages, but you cant exactly hide these things lol
The only way is to tell them right out that you didn’t do as well as you could have. Sure, they will be upset and disappointed (for you), but so will you; and it’s more letting yourself down than letting them down.
I think you’re thinking about it too much and looking at it from the wrong angle; your parents only want the best for you and want you to be happy, so while they will be disappointed for you, they will be fine as long as you’re happy with your Insurance choice.
Just. Tell. Them.
I actually want to disappoint my parents in a sense; sucks to them for putting so much pressure on me by saying 'You'll get 4 As' on every exam mention.
Jesus, you all have harsh parents.
My parents wouldn't particularly care...well, I guess they'd care, but they would never try and make me feel guilty or make out that I'd disappointed them. It's my choice to put the effort in or not, it's not really anything to do with them...
My parents can **** off. They're not allowed to be disappointed; it is my future after all.
