    Hey, I feel like I'm going to fail school my GCSEs are terrible the only good subjects that I am good at are maths and science i have such a passion for theses subjects but can never pass the exam I know the entire syllabus inside out but I am never pushed in lessons or anything. I really want to be a scientist but I will never be able to because of my inability to pass exams. In maths I got board of doing GCSE level so I got a as textbook and the teacher screamed at me and told me that I won't be doing that sort of maths but yet I get the right answers. I am so confused what should i do?

    Many people (myself included) struggle with exams. Sometimes it's simply the exam technique (I found that with Geography).

    Regardless of your result, you have a passion for Maths and Science. Nothing can stop you if you want to succeed. For now, practice exam past papers and then you're free to roam at college. The opportunities are far greater (eg diploma).

    Good luck! You'll be fine!

    It might not seem ideal but have you tried speaking to your teachers? Or asking your parents to speak to them? If they aren't supporting or pushing you enough then this should be discussed with the staff involved. On a more individual basis, I would advise continuing with the ambitious things you are doing - getting hold of higher level text books if you are beyond what is being taught in your GCSE lessons, however during exam season, make sure you do focus on the exams at hand, do plenty of practice papers so you know what to expect, and mark them yourself from the online marking scheme so you get a better idea of what the examiners want in terms of wording etc.

    Most importantly, when the time comes, keep calm and try to remember that the next two years can offer you more promising prospects - you have plenty of options and will be able to pursue those subjects that you are passionate about, and these exams are a chance to shine!
