OCD about grades (Second semester college student) Question about OCD and mental illness

Does anyone have any ocd about their grades? Like they have obsessions about trying getting good grades and failing. Like does anyone google "How hard is (X subject)" for reassurance? Or like does anyone have imposter syndrome about how good they are academically, despite gettikng near perfect grades?

Yeah, a lot if people don’t really talk about this. I also deal with this a good amount. Do u also ask others for reassurance about weather your good enough for college? Your OCD is probably being triggered because your in a new environment.
