Feeling hopeless

Announcements Posted on
Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016
    • Thread Starter

    I am in my last year of secondary school and have very important exams near June. I am going to start revising in September. However, I feel hopeless and feel like I am going to do bad in my exams. I want to score really high. I always have bad thoughts in my head (nothing suicidal) and think that I cant concentrate when revising, when in school classes and when doing schoolwork. I also think that I forget my important notes. This leads to me stressing out and getting really scared of failure. Please help!

    Don't let grades dictate you. Do your best (as usual) next year, but it's a lot more important to plan your career in advance. Good grades mean nothing if you're a dull character. You need to write about your extra-curriculars on your CV as they demonstrate the skills the employers look for - more so than in exams.
