    I've had rivalries with my friends during our GCSEs. There is no harm in comparing your results with other people from time to time but remember that everyone learns and progresses differently so another person's achievements don't always show that you've better/worse than them.

    Yes very true, and it is very hard to top a friend or family members grades when A-Levels are increasingly harder! No excuses tho:^_^:

    I had a rivalry with pretty much everybody. I always got top marks, so I ended up becoming the unofficial benchmark for everyone else to try to beat. Still happens at college .

    It's worse when you are sitting the new GCSEs and people have done better than you- but it's the old gcse and you try to explain that the new one is much more harder but nobody understands.
