    I used to do well in school (secondary school up to GCSE) but now i'm really struggling with a levels. I'm in my second year and suffering from severe depression and i'm worried i will not reach my full potential in life.
    In fact i feel like dying because i'm under so much pressure.

    I need help!

    Strangely I thought A levels were easier than GCSE, but maybe that's because I had brilliant teachers. Why do you feel like you are under pressure?

    I know its easier said than done, but try to stick to a revision timetable, dont let coursework build up to the last minute, just try and do the work as you go along.

    Plus, if you screw up the odd exam, you can always resit a few modules, I resat two and upped my original grade, so its not the end of the world if you dont do as well as planned at first.

    Perhaps consider talking to your Student Counselling service or a trusted adult.

    if you're finding them that hard maybe you've been doing the wrong subjects?

    and if you're depressed try go talk to someone about it, don't just let it all stay inside, build up, and get worse
