    I constantly get A's and A*'s in my mocks but in the past week I've had 2 nightmares about my GCSEs. The first is that I was in my head teachers office as she permanently excluded me and the second that I opened my exams envelope and got all B's and one C and thought in my dream state mind "goodbye Oxford" is this linked to stress?

    I'm a high achiever as well. Funny enough I had a nightmare 2 weeks ago as well that I got all D's- i woke up crying. I think it's because of the pressure and the stress as well. Everyone expects you to do amazing and yh that's what i think is causing this stress for me.
    These days I'm just thinking it through logically, spoke to mum about and it calmed my nerves. Try it, speak to someone.

    Son let me help with that... You need to research A levels, once you do that I can guarantee your nightmares will go… because you won't even be able to sleep.

    And for the record I got excluded from school in year 9 (Crazy story but after some long negotiating I found myself back at the same school mid yr10), and for GCSEs got 2 A's, 1B and the rest C's, I'm living your nightmare but I'm still aiming for Oxford lol

    I had a nightmare during my GCSEs that I got all Ds, and rejected from Oxford (dreams, right? Timelines are funny!) and had to go to a vocational college for bagpipers.
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
