(WJBK) -- Report card time can be pretty stressful, for students and parents. However, one parent got to feel the opposite of stress when he found his son's grade.

A young boy in the UK, set up a hidden camera, to catch his dad's reaction when he finally passed his math course.

The video starts when the father enters the door. Before he's even inside, the son shows father his report card.

"IS THAT REAL?" You can hear the father asking.

He then hugs his son and cries.

In the UK, you need at least a "C" to pass math. The YouTuber, ariamark, explained in the video description that he had gotten an F the year before and has struggled academically for many years. His passing grade went beyond everyone's expectations.

The video has been watched more than 300,000 times on YouTube. The comments have all been very supportive. One viewer by the name of mysteryparody10 even remarked, "I cried ok there I admit it. I cried a little."
