    I’m an a level student and recently we had mock exams and I got an A in one of my exams and I worked extremely hard this year since I want to really do well in my a levels and achieve my ambitions . But my class is so competitive like they all were screwing their faces when they found out that I got an A . So what do I do ? Because I mean I didn’t just get it out of luck I actually worked for it and putting the extra hours .its actually stupid how they are so immature . I didn’t even rant about it or say anything . In fact I want all of them to do well but they see me as a rival . I’m in year 13 btw . Also we are having individual meetings with our tutor and head of year about our mock results . Shall I tell them that this has been going on ?

    Better to ignore it, half of them won't see you in a couple of months.

    Be proud of yourself and ignore them. It's your life, your result and your future.

    That's just human nature I'm afraid. It's the same in the work place is well. Life is a competition and humans have very fragile egos

    I know that feel OP. Think about it this way: Winners focus on winning, losers focus on winners. Keep doing you, ignore the background noise.

    Ignore them. Was my class the only one in the country in which we all wanted eachother to do well?

    As long as you know you revised hard and fully deserved the grade you got, there's no need to feel bad. If anything, this should spur them on to work harder themselves.
