    i'm doing four as levels and i'm seriously finding them all just annoyingly hard. not HARD hard as in i can't do it, just there's too much work and i feel swamped by it all. I need to stop now and revise if I'm gonna pass, but no, I keep getting loaded with essays. ****. my psychology teacher keeps ringing my mum saying why haven't i been in lessons etc. i'm thinking, shall i drop psychology and concentrate on my other three subjects (eng lit, history, politics) cos tbh this is too much for me, i swear im going grey.

    Hi
    Yeah im in the same kinda boat and doing the same subjects except pyschology. I think she should try and stick it out and speak to your teacher, if you said that you were struggling with the workload maybe she might ease of a bit esp considering your doing 4 essay based subjects. Would your school let you drop a subject? cause my friends tried to drop english lit earlier in the year and our head of year wouldn't let them. However, if your really struggling and don't see things getting any better then speak to your form tutor about the possibilty of dropping it. I had to learn pretty quickly how to manage my time way better and even still im stressed ALL THE TIME

    Haha, this is how we all felt once. It passes once July rolls by... the last day of school.

    Nah but seriously, just manage your time properly and drink lots of caffeine.

    But seriously I found this with history last year but its better then year. I didn't drop it and I'm glad I didn't and I find it easier to cope with this year even with the work increase.

    Well, I never wrote any essays in pyschology, so I don't know why you're being made to do so many. For that subject, all you need to do is memorize the content and be able to string a decent answer together in the exam.

    Ans as for the panic attacks, yes, A levels will do that to you.

    Well to be fair Panic Attack had pretty much the same design since 2nd wars so its obvious it was a bit outdated at the end.

    Oh and the flipper was pretty much only a srimech - it was all about the forks :awesome:

    Omg same O_O except im doing art, geo, french and photography...2 arts subjects = many many many all nighters =/ but i love those subjects so dont mind the work...but hate the deadlines xD
    i would say you should drop psychology if its not that important to you cuz then youre more likely to do better in your other 3 subjects and you'll have less work and more free time =)

    Bah! you newbies with your energy drinks. Try it without any sort of caffiene or energy drinks being implemented into your life. Then you'll start to feel the burn.

    That's nothing I did: Philosophy, Eng Lit, History, Psychology, Dutch and Critical Thinking. I got B's and C's though in that year.
