Struggling already at AS watch

    • Thread Starter

    Physics is impossible and I just feel really stupid and have no idea what I'm doing half the time in the 4 subjects that I do

    Pal, I can assure you that you are not the only student who has ever said this! I am now in year 13 and I was feeling the exact same way last year. Believe me, the jump from GSCE to AS is huge, just ride it out, try and stay on top of your work, use your teachers for help, and just don't stress yourself out too much!

    You're not alone! I just started as too and I definitely feel the same. I'm just trying to make time to go over my notes from the lessons afterwards, and if I still don't understand I try to find someone that does understand to explain it to me or I'll ask the teacher.
    Don't stress about not understanding! Just give yourself time to work it out and eventually you'll get it

    If you are EVER struggling, make sure you tell your tutor! They are there for a reason.

    It is very normal and one of my friend does sciences and she feels quite lost too; make sure you ask your teachers and peers for help because you don't want to be behind. It will get better Good luck!
