No confidence in my academic abilities Watch

    I'm in my first year and although I get good marks in everything (mostly firsts) I really feel like I have no idea what I'm doing. I don't have any study methods so I just end up spending all my time studying in a very inefficient way. I'm so worried for the exams in the summer that it's making me nauseous. I've arranged to see a counsellor but I don't think they're going to be able to help me much. I'm so stressed and I'm not nearly as clever as other people in seminars. I've thought about dropping out and choosing a different course but tbh I think I would have the same problem with anything. I can't stop overthinking everything and I'm at my breaking point. Is there anything I can do to calm myself down?
