I got decent gcse grades... 2A* 3A 7B....they weren't very happy with it. I kind of screwed up my AS grades ABDD, which they definitely weren't happy about, but admittedly it was my fault as I hadn't worked that hard
Finally A2, I've litterally been working my butt off since the very first day school started, pushing myself so hard, and I can hear them talk from the living room how I'm not going to do well, won't get a good job, comparing me to others...and it's so demotivating. It's like why am I even trying if they don't think I can do well. All I want to do is make them proud. They get so embarrassed when relatives ask what I got for my AS, and if I screw up my A2, I honestly don't think I can bear it.
Sorry lol, just needed to rant a bit.

So you're studying A levels just to make your parents proud?
prove them wrong buddy

Welcome to modern day parenting where you're pressured to be better than everyone else at everything (which doesn't exist). The only way to challenge this kind of parenting is to know what you want to achieve in your life, and never let anyone get in the way of that, not even parents.

I don't know about you but I'm a stubborn b*****d so I would just use that as extra motivation to achieve even higher than you already planned.
For A levels chances are if you got into sixth form it is 90% determination and 10% skill.

The only thing you can do is push yourself and prove the wrong, and when you get your results in summer, they'll sure be shocked to find out that you smashed them! I'm in a similar situation with my Father; he pretty much thinks I'm too dumb to become a veterinary surgeon, but I'll make sure I'll work my butt off and prove him wrong by getting into vet school. I'm sure you'll do the same - good luck!
