So yesterday I got my mark back for a really hard assignment I did. I was quite happy with my mark, and then I went on Facebook and on the study group there were a few girls who were posting the exact scores they got and how amazing it was and how they didn't need to try in the next assignment because they already have an HD average. On the other hand, I've been a bit stressed about the second assignment and seeing this made me feel a bit anxious. Does anyone else feel like this when they see people talking about how well they went in their assessments? I'm happy for them of course but it just made me a little bit ruffled and wanted to post on here to see what everyone else thinks!

I never see people discussing their marks from uni, beyond them mentioning what their WAM is when wondering about whether they're qualified for things, but I remember that feeling from high school. Especially around year 11 and 12 and with ATAR scores. So many people post about their score. so so many.
It always got to me too. If someone else's grade or result or anything was even a single mark higher than mine I'd feel unsure of myself.
I think one of the big things to remember is that most people haven't gotten a HD on that assignment. Most people are stressing/worrying about the next assignment too.

It irritates me a bit, and @Birdeye is right... no one actually cares what mark you get after high school lmao. I like knowing the average of the class because i want to know where I sit, but beyond that... i hate people boasting
I think people post stuff like that because theyre a bit insecure. like theyre compensating for something. I used to be proud i could do well in stuff without trying, but now im suffering because i want to be able to try and care and actually do work than just coast. I think hard work is more important than the end result.
unfortunately our education system doesnt rlly support this :/
