    I know there's only a month left but is there really a point in sitting the exams when I'm going to fail them anyway? I'm doing A-levels and really don't feel fit enough to do this anymore, I am so incredibly stressed like even looking at a textbook makes me really nauseous. Thinking about it makes me cry.

    It's not about how long is left, it's about failing them, wouldn't it be best to sit them next year when I'm more ready? UUU wouldn't look good anywhere. I know if I do drop out, it's April and I'll look like a fool. I really do feel like when the exams come around I might die from a heart attack, I'm so worked up over it!

    Help!

    I am in exactly the same situation as you, but it's really not too late to drop out now! You won't look like a fool if it's causing you that much distress

    Hope this helps

    TBH, whether you will fail or not, its better to try because if you don't you may regret it.

    You never know, you could wing it.

    Have you spoken to anyone about how you're feeling? It's hard for anyone on a forum to know what situation you are genuinely in (things would have to be pretty dire for UUU to be a likelihood) but staff at your college should be able to offer you some support and help you make the right decision.

    there's no harm in doing the exams and just seeing how you do.
    it would be a waste not to attend the exams and even with something like CCC you could still get a decent place in clearing

    When I was doing a-levels I was stressed and had other things going on in my life that added to the stress. I dropped out during my first year and the next year started a btec course. I got top grades and now I'm going to start a russel group uni this September. So life goes on, you still have options. Just think of a plan before you make any permanent decisions.
