Basically, I'm alright at spelling and stuff like that, but I kind of struggle copying all the digits off my calculator. I am much better at saying what I want to say/argue than writing it down in essays and it costs me marks and I don't know how to fix it. I can't line up straight lines (what I mean is I need to trace it with my finger, the other day we were copying graphs off the board and I had to physically go up and trace up the points with my finger because I couldn't see it. It's the same with timetables and music scores.). The last one is probably the most problematic at the moment, I do 2 sciences and maths at A-Level and it makes graph and table reading/plotting take so much longer.
Is there something wrong or do I just need better concentration? I'd like to know, because I'm sometimes the butt of the joke with things like the graph reading and it's a bit frustrating.

Would ask to be referred to an educational psychologist via your school ASAP. They are the experts at assessing and diagnosing and helping with problems like this.
There are a vast variety of learning difficulties - all of which have varying degrees of impact on your ability to study effectively.
It sounds like a very specific aspect you're having difficulty with.
I really would get this assessed as soon as you can. There may be some very specific help that could be given to help you.
Also I would flag up this difficulty with your tutor - so they are aware and can make any necessary adjustments. I know some people with specific difficulties such as dyslexia are able to have additional time in assessments.
