I feel like ****. I’m applying for quite a competitive course this year, Law at high end unis and I need to do this hard exam to get into them and it’s fine whatever i really don’t mind where I end up. My close family friend who’s basically my brother got into imperial for maths recently which is great! The thing is I can’t help but feel jealous. He wasn’t ever really that smart, were both Scottish and it sounds weird but uni rep is quite big where I’m from. He gets all the praise and whatnot, and I’m glad he deserves it but no one seems to be saying anything about me. I got an offer from UCL which is so hard and competitive to get into but no one cares.

The jealousy and comparing doesnt really get you anywhere.
Why not just be happy you have the offer and put your need for praise and notwhat to one side> nobody is going anywhere until you get the results. meet your own standards and others opinions matter less. You can always tell them one day.
Take the day off and chill, then go at it with a fresh approach from Monday. Just block him out.
