I'm sure it is difficult being in this situation especially as you share a home.
Whilst he has allowed you to do lots of things for him, you have also allowed yourself or chosen to do these things. 15 year old boys are developmentally at a less mature stage than an 18 year old girl and it sounds like he has been seeing the things you do as somewhat parental. Essentially it sounds like you have been 'mothering' him. You might find yourself doing this because your own mom is not around.
Right now it is impotant that you focus on your own needs. Your exams are important and are about your future, and you need to give your time over to studying. After that I think its important that you begin thinking about what kind of relationship you would like, where your needs are met. To be honest this is not likely to with a 15 year old, as to be fair to him you cannot expect him to like an 18 year old, even if he is mature for his age.
When your exams are over get out there and socialise, meet new people and find someone who you can have a more equal relationship. This way you will feel that both of your needs are being met.
Take care and good luck with your exams
