    Ignore the above post, I felt like this last year and even now whilst in my A2's and you might feel like you're a lone but you really are not. Around this time you will feel the most overwhelmed but you will adjust to it. Work at your own pace, every time you learn something in class spend an hour at home or in a free just reading it over. If you let things get on top of you then you will feel so stressed out. Also dont think that because your struggling you need to work,work, work, remember to enjoy yourself aswell.

    Oh and dont be afraid to ask for help...yes A levels are more independent but teachers wont leave you completely alone.

    I think everybody feels like this. I felt it for all of last year, and though I still feel it now, it's not to the same extent. Just work hard and it will pay off, (just try and maintain some sort of social life too!)

    What subjects do you do? There is help available on here and with your teachers/friends, don't isolate yourself!

    Hey, just try not to stress too much, like the above poster I felt exactly like you in my first year and I am now in my second year, the best thing you can do is to try not to let it get you down and to think about why you want to do well in college and what your ultimate goal is after college, for example, uni and what you want to do in uni, I honestly let myself get way too upset about college in the first year and ended up not doing as well as I would of liked and now I regret it more than anything. Take breaks, take a breather, think where you would like to be in the next 3 years and take it from there, just don't give up.

    Like both the posters above me I still feel the stress, actually it's multiplied this year in A2, you musn't let things get on top of you. I am thinking of this as a learning experience, learning to cope with huge amounts of stress and being able to handle it. I'm sure we will get better and better at it as time progresses. Just take a few deep breaths and carry on, have a TSR break whilst working, that usually helps me don't let it turn into a TSR hour though
