So lets hear them. My story,

*after spending 20 mins struggling with the UAC site, it SUDDENLY got in and surprised me with an UAI*

UAI: 98.50

Dad: Maybe your school's ranking pulled it down?

Me: ...

Lol. That's some hearty emotional blackmail for future use.

Back in the day (04) when I found out my UAI I ran out to the kitchen where my parents were waiting and:

Me: Mum, Dad, I got 93.65!!

Dad: Well Done

Mum: Yes! You beat your cousin!

Me: *slammed door etc etc*

I can laugh about it now...

My reaction: sleep in until 12, look at results and am pleasantly surprised by a number in the 90s. Eat weetbix. Go back to sleep. Wake up again and go on bored of studies

Parents: Are yet to realise UAI comes out today.. and that HSC marks came out yesterday - even though I have alerted them to the fact many times before :party:
