I personally had the exact same situation when I was doing A-levels - I would be trying to work on mediating and nitnem in the mornings before school, and my parents were very much alienated by that. What worked for me was to trust Guru Maharaj and kindly ask for his support, and trust in the power of the meditative practice. The meditation is clearing your mind, especially with other practices like Yoga and doing your nitnem. Thus I ended up doing much better in my exams because I was much clearer. If you want to do better in your studies, so as to keep your parents happy, these practices will support you, as will healthy lifestyle, exercise etc... Serving people, say at the Gurudwara will also do you a help - remember that God helps those that help others.
