Me: Reasonably good gcse grades, taking a-levels, hoping to go to uni, bit geeky, surgically attached to computer, very conciencous, a bit of a perfectionist at school (I cried on gcse results day because I failed one subject and missed a A* in IT by 2 marks
). I study and finish coursework in my frees, work well idependently, always got gold plated reports/parents evenings, with comments such as "I wish they were all like her" "Perfect student, can't think of anything bad to say even if I tried" :O (exactly!). On first name terms with most teachers, quiet. In top 3 in IT, have loads of academic related certificates.
My brother: Class clown, popular (would get A* in it if it was gcse), G&T in music, but because of this thinks everything else will come easily, puts mimimal effort in, always the teachers fault/mistake if he gets detention/bad report/parents evening.
