    i am feeling very stressed atm with a-levels and university entry atm.

    In this exam period i have 5 exams, incl 2-resits i have already taken and it's really taking its toll. i started my revision early last month but it hasn't worked for maths at all so i've been concentrating on c2/c3 and ive got c3 exam on wednesday. all i can think about is exams and i need to get X, Y and Z for P, Q and R universities and i'm stressing over how badly i did in physics re-sit and how i haven't done nearly enough for economics and physics at the end of the month. i'm doubting my own abilities and if i can do the course i want to do at all even though in straight thinking i feel fine. when i can't do something in revision and try to learn it it feels like i'm only getting worse and i just end up hiding from it. i'm finding it hard to sleep and urghhhhhhhhh. i'm really worried i'll end up with so much to do in the summer i'll just end up flopping and failing, even though i got at AS ABBD (one mark off 2 as's for AABC) so I know i'm capable but the bad mark i got in maths D was so unexpected. :eek3:

    anyone else had something similar and found ways of dealing with immense stress?

    alcohol is your friend

    Calm down brah. Keep on top of things and have confidence in yourself when you go to exams otherwise when you feel anxious or think you're going to do badly it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy and you do just that.

    Keep cool brah keep cool :cool:

    We're all in the same boat. Take a deep breath, if worse comes to worse, retake in June and revise earlier.

    It'll only get worse if you don't sort it out to be honest. Things like anxiety and stress only get worse the longer you live with them. Your body becomes more accustomed to those levels in your body and any situation you confront will conjure the same feelings.
