    There's a reason I'm up so late.. I suffer with anxiety unfortunately every night because of the current Computer science course I'm on.
    In the past during A Level I enjoyed this subject and did well achieving an A*, in terms of thinking problematically in the computer science kind of way I felt I had that quality.
    Until I took Computer Science to a further level..
    Now all that I'm met with are dead ends, I'm overflowed with work that has to be completed in various different languages at all times, I'm so stressed and panicky that I can't sleep, I can't eat and I throw up regularly.
    The sad thing is my projects aren't in until the end of the month yet I feel like I can't deal with it.
    I am currently in my first year and second semester of university, during my first semester I struggled but I managed to achieve firsts in my modules.
    THIS WAS NOT DESERVED.
    I cheated.. at least it felt that way, my courseworks were a combination of my friends, googles and my work and I feel guilty and ingeniune for taking this course.
    There's no way I can quit now as I have put a deposit on a house for the second semester.
    I feel like I can't get my work done without the assistance of Google. Bare in mind I don't straight up Google the answers but as an example:
    If I needed to add integers into a 2D array for Java I'd understand theoretically what I need to do and I could easily write pseudocode for this procedure. However I'd have to use Google to complete this as I don't know the syntax and I essentially apply what I find to my situation which makes me feel cheap and like I'm not doing any actual work.


    Is this common? or am I not suited to this degree? should i quit?
    Thanks and sorry for the length of my post
