    I am so stressed!! My teachers are setting so much work for me at the moment, there's masses of english coursework that I need to get done by next week, they're only re-drafts but obviously I need to put the effort in if I'm going to get a decent grade.
    I appaarently have a maths test on friday, which I haven't yet revised for as my teacher hasn't actually told the class that we have one, but our head of year told us that we do.
    I'm doing the DiDA ICT course, and my teacher expects me to do one of the four things to be completed by next week, which is physically and mentally impossible.
    I have history coursework/homework that needs to be done too.
    I'm not the type that doesn't do homework for when it's set or anything, so this isn't a build up of work!

    I'm starting to stress eat also, like craving carbs baaadly. D':
    Does anyone have any advice on how to tackle this and become less stressed?
    Thanks

    Stress is hard to deal with, however making sure you eat properly often helps, well for me anyway.

    THe awesome GCSE days! Tackling stress is more psychological than physical. So keep saying to ur self that ur not the only one in this situation.

    - Take a break every 60/45 minutes (depending on how much u can take in one go). I went outside (garden) and just sat down in peace. DONT watch TV as it would only build up the tension.

    - Most importantly, EAT HEALTHY! Trust me, i didnt during revision time and fell severly ill during my a levels coz i neglected my health. So no matter what u do, eat healthly ( 5 a day!).


    Hope that helps!

    Eat, sleep and be organised.

    Make sure eat and drink healthily.
    Get a good night's sleep every night.
    And make sure you know when you have work in. Make a timetable or keep a diary of when everything is in for and organise your time.

    Make yourself targets, so "I'm going to get this piece of coursework redrafted by Sunday evening" etc.

    Be strict and stick to the timetable.

    Welcome to the perils of growing up a student! Good luck.

    Wait until year 13, dear God! Okay, it doesn't help that I'm doing an intensive A level...

    Take a piece of A4 paper, put it horizontally. Along the bottom, write all the good things, then have 3 or 4 columns above that for: This week, Next week, next month and things to not worry about at all. Write in the things to worry about this week etc. See how it's spread out? If you manage to tackle all of this week's stuff before the end of the week, you can get a head start on next week's stuff!

    Have a diary with a to do list and stick to it. Gradually you'll finish everything and the stress will go away.

    If you're too stressed, step back, grab a mug of horlicks/hot choc/etc, a good book/music/TV programme etc and enjoy yourself for a while and come back to it later.

    Sorry.

    Try and put in an all nighter and get your work shifted as much as possible - or don't go out this weekend?

    At this point in the year, I just ditched any homework, used the spare time for relaxing, and just made sure my coursework was done. Do the same

    You're name's procrastination...do you do this? If so just get on with your work.

    Don't bother coming on TSR, set yourself realistic targets with regular breaks where you promise yourself a chocolate bar or watch your fave programme, then when your breaks over get back to work.

    Prioritise your work, and if you start getting stressed out take a deep breath and step away from your computer for a few minutes. Get yourself together and say 'I can do it' out loud. I find this helps. Just keep calm because stressing out won't help. Just get to it!

    Some of the above answers are good =) but yeah try not to sleep too late and get up early cuz that'll make you even more stressed if youre tired xD make checklists and break up your work into sections so tick off each section as you go along...this might sound strange but it also makes you feel more positive about it when you see all the ticks on your checklist cuz you feel like you've done a lot =) but seriously lol it helps. Talk to your teachers as well if it gets too much. And definitely think positive! I have to say when i did gcses i felt exactly like you do now xD actually i still do atm for AS! probably cuz im doing 2 arts subjects...but at gcse i did just do coursework and important stuff and didnt really do homework xD

    Right
    1 - Doesn't need to be done before the weekend. Forget about it for now.
    2 - If you haven't been told then I'd imagine it's a 'pop' quiz style thing, to see how you're all doing on the course without revision. Don't revise, see how you do, use it as a learning activity. Forget about it for now.
    3 - Do that one thing then, make it happen! Knuckle down and do it. Have it done before the weekend.
    4 - When's the deadline? I presume it's not before half term. Do it over half term.

    The coursework ones need to be done sooner i guess than others, so why not speak to the teachers of other, not so important bits of work, and see if they could extend the deadline, and say that if you have 2 extra days, for example, you will get a much higher grade because you will have had more time etc. worth a try? they can only say no!

    You should create a clear timetable planning out when you should do each piece of work and allocate reasonable amounts of time for all. Forget about TSR/internet/TV/friends until you have it all completed.

    I like exams...and coursework. I like it a lot better than sitting listening to teachers talk for ages. Year 11 has been easy so far...teachers go really easy on you; I've only had a few pieces of homework since Christmas. Also sometimes if it's not really worth it, don't bother doing it. And prioritise. If you struggle more at Maths, do that homework over English. In the end you're trying to get the best marks possible in June and most homeworks are revision tasks like past papers.

    Ohh babykins must be so stressful having to complete basic essays and remember **** all,

    to be fair i remember feeling like you did at your age so i cant take the piss but i think your more trying to emulate the feeling of stress rather then actually being stressed as it satisfies the need to feel grown up.

    GCSES mean diddly squat, wait till you do alevels and realise your whole future rests on this year. Then again Im sure that in a years time I will be looking back at alevel thinking its a pile of piss compared to degree.

    Point is quit moaning and start doing your work, must take up a bit of time doing a thread like that? Things only get harder and I am not saying that to big up my own life and sound grown up trust me. Ask any other 6th form student (part from those that dont socialize and revise all the time) and they will tell you the same!
