    I feel like I have failed everything and not gonna meet my parents and teachers expectations. I am predicted 5A's and 5B's but feel like I am not gonna get those grades and disappoint everybody around me. My teachers are confident I will do well but I am not confident in myself . I won't be able to face anyone on results day if I fail.

    Does anybody else feel like this?

    I think everyone feels like this, but what you need to do is realise that you do have the potential to get those grades!! Just beleive in yourself, keep pushing and don't give up Just know that whatever happens, its for the best and there is more good to come

    Yeah, most people feel like that.

    But at the end of the day, GCSEs aren't thought about much unless you want to something like Medicine or get into Oxbridge. Right now, you just need to focus on revising and trying not to dwell. Just go into an exam with an open mind, and once you've sat it, don't think about it and move onto preparation for the next exam.

    Being fresh and positive about an exam will also help you to do better.

    Good luck.

    I feel exactly the same as you! I feel as if I could've put more effort into some of the exams I've done but with others I know I've done my best. But it's just the fact that I know I could've done better that really gets to me? I'm also predicted the same grades as you but I honestly doubt I'll manage to get all a's and b's at this point :/ I just hope my results aren't as bad as I'm expecting them to be when I open my results. I guess all we can do is work as hard as we can for our upcoming exams and try not to stress about the past too much. But I know it's harder said than done. Anyway, you're definitely not alone so don't worry about it
