I got "That's good".

Now some of my fellow classmates however were less than supportive...

LOLOLOLOL...hahahaha...that's a good one!

Mum: Why is it 0.1 lower than the calculator prediction, looked a little disappointed

Dad: "Wow, that's excellent! I thought you would only get around 94 or 95!" (after he averaged the marks for all my subjects...*facepalm*...*sigh*)

mum: Aw I'm so sorry that you didn't get 95! Sooo close, oh I'm so sorry.
me: um it doesn't matter, I got what I needed.
mum: oh yes of course not. well done!

Parents thought I could do better, in the 90s, despite telling them throughout the whole year I just am not a 90 student :p But they said if I was happy with my mark and it gets me where I want then they are happy too :)

Mum: "That's still good. You should be proud of yourself".

Typical Mum who doesn't know what's going on and is secretly disappointed because I didn't quite achieve what I wanted.

My mum was "You should have worked harder instead of being on facebook all the time"

And dad just said "Do you think you could have done better? Oh well, as long as you're happy"

LOL same here. Except I guess I deserved that reaction since I pretty much did shit all the second half of the year and now have a 91.40 to show for it. =___=
