    Last year I took 4 AS Levels, and failed them all. (EEUU) I really didn't understand why because, in my opinion, I revised as much as I could and understood most of the content, especially for Psychology, which I loved. I was shocked at these results, and decided to repeat the year at another college, switching subjects. I am now taking Film Studies, Sociology and Psychology, and enjoy all three. When it came to my mocks just before Christmas, I started to think... what if I fail again? What will happen then? I got a B in my Sociology and an A in my Psychology, but the same thing happened last year. It's starting to make me feel really upset.

    Is anyone else feeling like this? Is there anything I can do?

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks! x

    Just ensure you're working to your full potential. I was in the same boat and during my resit year I just worked flat out. I'd do 8 hour days sitting at my desk and time it cleverly so I could still have a social life in the evenings. i.e. do 10am - 6pm then go out with friends. After sixth form I'd study 5pm until my work/studying was done. I never took a day off, I worked on Xmas day the lot.

    I came out with AAA from BCC. The only thing preventing my anxiety of failing again was knowing I was working any waking moment I could and hitting my targets I set myself. Give yourself some breaks but I just think it's only another 5 months, just work as hard as you can and go for it!!
