    If they asked and I said to them, I did really well, I'm really happy with it, or I'm disappointed with it, do you think that's reasonable? After all, what matters is how you feel about your grade, it's you who needs to decide whether you need to work harder to get into uni, or should feel proud of what of you've achieved. Who cares whether it fulfills their expectations? Bearing in mind that they will do nothing to help if you screwed up your exam, and will give you very little emotional support or compliment no matter what response they got from you (because they don't think you need it). Do I have a point or would it not be right to do this? I'd like to hear your opinions.

    If they won't help there is no point telling them.

    You could say that, but then they might say: "OK, what grades did you get?"

    No you do not have to tell them. It's a mock and the purpose of it is to highlight area on where you're struggling.

    You are old enough to be in charge of your own decisions and education.

    Relationships between parents and children are different in every case. I know someone who didn't have supportive parents and it's kind of screwed them up a bit emotionally. I on the other hand have very supportive parents who wouldn't care what grade I got as long as I worked hard. Bear in mind, they are entitled to ask what the grade was. The usual method was to tell them the grade, and follow that by how you feel and your plan of action if you're not happy. That tended to stop them lecturing about what I needed to do.

    PM if you want.:hugs:

    I used to tell my parent whatever the grade but even if I wouldn't have they always sent progress cards with your mock grades and target grades and stuff on after every big mock.

    I didn't tell them (not because I didn't do well) because your mock grade means nothing, and only the real exam counts and the end of the day.

    I'm not going to tell them mine. I thought I did decent, but I for sure know they'll be disappointed as they have very high expectations

    I wanted to know what my partner's daughter got as I'm actually tutoring her in Maths and the sciences, so it was important I knew and could go through the paper with her to know what she was struggling on
