I am currently stressed with the amount of coursework I have for A-level English and History. I have finished my first of two essays for history and am on the second one, but my problem is english. I have to write a fiction and a non-fiction piece and I am on my 3rd time of scrapping fiction coursework and starting again. The deadline can only be a few weeks away by now and my mind is blank! I have my topic and I know roughly what to write, but because I'm doing english at uni the coursework needs to help get me that A! I am stressed out. Any tips from anyone suffering the same?

I'm really stressed about my English Lit coursework and it's due in March. I also have an ongoing ICT coursework that I've started in September and carries on right through until April and words can't even describe how close I am to breaking down whenever I sit down and think about how much I have to get through as well as keeping up to date/getting ahead with my sociology revision and three texts for my English exams. Therefore, I always focus on tasks I have to complete in the moment instead of thinking about the whole project and how soon its due but how little I've actually done
A good way to deal (though I find it impossible to take my own advice) is to set yourself deadlines. Be sure to finish a few paragraphs or cover a particular topic in your free period sessions/after school or even in the morning before your day begins. Knowing that you're slowly but surely hacking your way through your coursework can be really assuring.
Although I don't have that much advice to give since I'm going through the same, I wish you the best of luck!!!!
