me and my friends are competetive but we dont want each ohter to completely flop
I am very competitive with people I dont like. There is one guy in my class who applied for the same subject at the same uni as me and does very similar A Levels too. If I beat him I shall be over the moon. If I dont then I will take solice in the fact I got into my first choice and he didnt. (I know how petty and spiteful this sounds but this guy is so self obsessed and arrogant and he has caused loads of problems for friends of mine).
I dont mind my friends beating me unless it's because I havent worked hard enough and then I feel angry with myself. I am ****ing myself this year that one of my friends is going to miss their uni offer. I swear I am as worried for them as I am for me!
Nah i don't compete with friends. I want them to do well just as much as i want myself to do well. That, and the fact that they'd win lol.
Yeah i compete, but nawww, i want all my good friends to get the best grades, as do I. But the ones i am not so fond of... who cares what they get heh.
Oh yes I used to be like that with one girl in particular, she was a friend and a lovely person, but a complete nerd...I still got more A*s than her though so I was happy haha! Bit of schadenfreude is it not?!
I never compete with my friends because I always lose dramatically!
Out of my group of friends that I've sort of become distant from, over half of them probably will end up getting straight As. Which is very depressing.
Out of my 3 best friends, 2 will most likely also get staight As.
I gave up competing a long time ago!
Only because my friends are the annoying type that do no work and end up with top grades, whereas I tend to work my hardest and end up with average or bad grades. So I feel competitive in that I *want* to do better than them, but I know I never will.
I'm not gonna see a lot of my friends on results day so I can't really compare UMS marks with them. Maybe that's a good thing.
Yeah competition is pretty fun. I made a lot of bets. In January I won £2 by betting with my friend that I beat him on C3. Unfortunately no one wants to bet money anymore, but there's this kid in my physics class that I have a bet with that if I do better than him at Maths than he does at Physics he pays me a fiver.
I'm indifferent to it mostly.
I only tend to feel competitive towards one of my friends. She gets around the same grades as me and we take 3/4 the same subjects at AS lvl.
^ Omg you are too damn clever!
No competition at all. All my mates are complete slackers really.
il just be annoyed if i dont get the grades to go to uni, and my friend who isnt going to uni next year gets the grades i need.
but im not telling people that so ssssh :P
