Just heard my mum tell her friend on the phone that she has no hope for me getting into uni because I got up at half 10 this morning and didn't start revising till about 11- I'm currently holding an offer for medicine and waiting to hear back from 2 other interviews (offer AAA). It wouldn't be so demoralising if I didn't feel like I have tried and worked hard for this my entire life. My family has always had an unnatural obsession with academic achievement but have also always had faith in my abilities to achieve what ever I try to achieve. But hearing this has broken me as I feel as if theres nothing more I can do, if my own family don't believe I can get the grades I need, what hope do I have? I just feel lost.
Any advice on this situation is welcome and probably needed. Cheers.

Have you tried sitting down with your mum and having a frank conversation about it?
