I've got my first AS level exam in 21 days and I cannot revise. Okay, that's a bit dramatic - I CAN revise, I just can't get my head around it. It's like there is a wall in my head and every time I try to work, I hit it and can't access any of my knowledge, so I just sit there and despair. My teachers seem to think I'm capable of achieving 'high' grades, but at the rate I'm going I'll be lucky to finish with anything above a U. My anxiety was triggered last year in the lead up to GCSE's (never had a problem with it up until then) but ever since, I have struggled with it an awful lot. I know that I'm panicking, and I know I have to find a way to grit my teeth and get on with it, but it's so hard and I am so tired of trying. I want those grades but I can't muster the energy to get them. Anyone else in the same boat? Have you found a way past it?

It's the anxiety, I know how that feels. I suggest you try and get into the "zone". I listen to some music (no lyrics) while I work and helps my concentration and I keep going.
The anxiety causes you to lose concentration.
