When you get an average score on a test and you say to your parents that actually you are with the highest score 'cause all the other kids failed at the test, your parents say that they don't care about other kids' grades. But when you get a high score, they always ask you if you are the only one or everybody did good like you. amirite?

Yeah, early on it's good to instill the importance of grades, but I'm such a tightly-wound person that I could really frustrated with my parents pressuring me about school. I know I put enough emphasis by myself, yet they seem to miss that. But oh well. Only thing to do about it is live with it and try to keep others from becoming too harsh of parents about that sort of thing.

And nothing is wrong with that. Wanting the best for your child and believing in the is wonderful. Telling them how disappointed you are when they aren't the best however...
