    Hi - I decided to post anonymously as I feel really embarrassed about how stupid and irrational I am being atm.

    I am hoping to start uni this September to read English - which I really really love!
    I achieved AAB in my AS Levels and I am predicted A*AB this year, but I cannot shake off this awful fear I have of failing!

    Everytime I have to write an essay I blank out and start to get really panicky - thinking 'OMG I am going to screw up and reveal how **** I am at everything' - I know this is totally dum and I should just pull myself together, but I can't and would really benefit from some advice.

    My exams are coming up and I want to aim for 3 A's, but obviously if I let everything get on top of me I won't do as well - can anyone suggest ways to keep calm and focussed?

    Thanks guys - really appreciate some support is you have a free moment

    Hey, well I wouldnt exactly say Im the calmest person in the world but you could try yoga, apparently its really good to relax you and see things in a clearer perspective. I mean, if you don't get thse grades it wont be the end of the world, you will still get into a decent uni with your previous grades. So don;t put too mcuh pressure on yourself
