I'm a 17 year old currently taking Chemistry/Biology/Maths/Further Maths.

I'm currently studying in one of the top school in Liverpool.

But

My results were declining every year. I was born and bred in china under shear-load of pressure and work - when I emigrated to UK I was relieved:

no homework.

Feeling I've gone lazy under this influence.

Then comes the GCSE. A total screw-up/disappointment. 1 A*, 2 A's and rest B's/C's/D's.

Vowed to myself that I'll work harder in the A-level.

So far I've done all but nothing.

Always wanted to get attitude up right and do some work. Always succeeded in evading the thought.

Now the exams are looming close.

I felt an armageddon is approaching.

I'm gone.

peer pressure, pressure from teachers/parents, other issues, lots of things all adding to it

it's like defining pressure in a physical concept - all the molecules hitting a container and hence creating an overall force

He makes that judgement because he feels he was capable of better. He didn't say they were crap grades as such, just not of the calibre that he thinks he is capable of.

You can't do that. Different people define success in different ways. Whereas some might be happy to get by, others want to do much better. Especially knowing they can/could.

It has nothing to do with both parents or teaching.

In fact, it's more of a personal issue.

I seemed to lost this "drive" that keeps me working.

It happened to my when I did my GCSE's I got good results but not what I was capable of because of family pressure and problems, somehow I managed to pull it together for my A Levels though.
