Be truthful.

Did you try your best? If you did, who cares what you get. You'll always have the "I tried my best" line to give your parents.

I did do my best, I did good in most internals, just exams are the death of me.

This is going to sound harsh.

If they're going to brutalise you even if it's verbally, those are not parents.

Don't lie just tell the truth. Obviously don't start with 'i didn't try my best' that sounds bad. Just say you recognise that you could have done things better etc. etc. and you regret not trying harder, but x is still a good result. Insert your ATAR in x.


Remember average atar is 69.

Hahaha. Yeah my parents don't really understand what's good or what's bad. They think I can easily get 91, but I had to spend a while explaining that 91 is actually very high and tell them that I probably won't do too well.

So there's a tip to others. Lower your parent's expectations before the big day.

Don't take their shit.

Be like "alright guys show me your 99.95 ATAR equivalents show me all your HDs from uni show me your mother fucking yacht then you can belittle my achievements like a bunch of 12 year old elitists."
What if they do have 99.95 atars and HDs and yachts
