    I am dyslexic. I have major problems remembering things. I am doing two science a-levels this year but I find it hard to remember keywords. To cope to this before I just studied a lot more then any of my classmates did. But this year I am really suffering. We have test every week and without a fail I do worse then everyone else. I no longer have any self confidence anymore. I am great in lessons. I understand what the teacher is saying but after class even if I review my notes. I can't get most of it in my head. I know I should compare with my classmates but it hurts so much when I hear they have only studied for an hour and got an A. Any help or suggestions?

    You should inform your teachers about this. Also, you shouldn't get so worried about doing bad in tests.
    Since you understand what the teacher is saying during the lesson, have you tried watching video lectures and see if you can understand them? Or do you feel that you need some kind of actual interaction to learn things?
