    What, so the showing off is more affective as more people understand the significance of the high grades? :P I don't see why this is a reason; it just furthers my belief that people do it to show off.

    Just in case I'm sending a mixed message here, I want to note that I don't care if people do or not, I'm just wondering why they do.
    itz all bout grades man dey b represpentin

    You are right though, it is starkly obvious that people tend to do so solely to show off.

    maybe they want to show off..
    maybe they want to remember their effort to get such better result..
    maybe they want to make people jealous and then make the people trying to get such better result too..
    maybe....

    Maybe because placing a really big emoticon penis there instead would results in warning points?

    Because they are proud of what they achieved and want to show it off.

    Why do people phone friends and family as soon as they get grades?

    Either they don't (I've never done that, neither have any of my friends. Family usually rings the student to find out) or they do it to keep the family updated on their lives and prospects, something not generally done with strangers over the internet.
