    Just remember it'll be over soon. You just need to pull yourself together now and power through it whilst doing the best you can. I was in floods of tears before my philosophy exam last year because I was so scared I knew nothing. You just need to put things in to perspective, go over your revision and notes, be content in the knowledge that you've done all you can and go for it. The feeling you'll get when it's all over will be so good.

    Look after yourself. Reread this in a few days time. If you are still beating yourself up and are being paranoid get some relaxation in. I did what you are doing now 33 years ago and ended up with schizophrenia! Please don't get too wound up over the exams.

    Love, M.

    They are only a couple of school exams. At the moment, you probably feel like they are the most important thing in the world and are the key to your entire destiny but let me tell you something: they aren't. In a couple of years - they won't be a big deal.

    There are many ways to get where you want and your hopes and aspirations constantly change anyway. I mean, I didn't even do any A-levels yet I now have a first class degree and a masters and am midway through a PhD. The exams are done. Whatever happened, happened and if they didn't go as planned - there is always something else you can do to get where you want to be.

    You will have learnt something and benefitted whatever the results anyway. When I took my first driving test - I was so nervous I was practically shaking. I made a silly error and failed but at least it taught me how to relax and chill out for the next time.

    I'm scared that I messed up my English exam - the only subject I've ever truly loved and I want to take it to university, so I completely understand how freaked out you're getting. It's hard to get the thought of failure out of my head. But it's also important to not let it drag you down. There are more exams to come, and it's not the end of the world, there's always retakes and hey - you might not have done as bad as think!
    You have to make sure you're looking after yourself though, stay positive, get as much sleep as you can and eat properly. I've found it helpful to talk to my subject tutors - they're generally really encouraging and reassuring. Don't let the fear of results spoil your summer either! Good luck x

    ahhhh don't stress about exams cause it'll do you no favours and you won't do as well as you could! You sound well prepared and I know how stressful it is to do all 3 exams in 1 day and having to revise for 3 the night before but calm down and stay positive, I know it's a lot esier said than done though :/ goood luck!
