    First of all your parents WILL love you no matter what grades you get, as long as you've WORKED HARD for them
    Second, you cannot be 100% sure that you messed them up until results day. Plus you have more exams to come, at least be in a good frame of mind for those :yep:
    Third, don't run away. It will solve NOTHING and your parents would probably be worried sick.

    If you want, PM me x Just take a few deep breaths and calm down :hugs:

    also you think your life is bad. I'm literally sitting alone, wrapped in a blanket listening to Taylor Swift...:sigh:

    You'll be fine..
    I grew up in the shadow of a perfect older brother, straight As and all. But I wasn't bothered by it, they forgot me when he was around which gave me ample space to grow..
    They won't hate you because deep in their minds they know you 'are not perfect' as your other sibling. They'll be disappointed maybe, they'll say, if you won't bring A stars. Always remember that you run your own race..

    Right, GCSEs are not your whole life - they're not as essential as people make out, you don't need all A*s, I only got 1.

    You'll be fine, just stop stressing out, if you want PM me

    Agree! I only got 4 GCSEs and I'm doing OK. The experience is more important anyways. Employers don't really look at my grades on my CV they look at what experience I have and how I can use those skills in the job.

    Relax,

    GCSE's are not everything, nobody will care about them as you get older.

    You still have a more exams left so you can still get good marks and rectify for earlier mistakes .

    Good luck!

    Breathe and stay calm. GCSE's are honestly just to get you into college and 99% of the time aren't used afterwards anyway. Don't stress over something insignificant. Your A-Levels are way more important, trust me (I've done my research ;P).
    I would talk to your parents about it because it'll calm you down knowing they have your back and they love you. At the end of the day your parents will be worried incase YOU'RE disappointed and not them

    I agree, honestly it's disgraceful the amount of pressure that's put on students these days by teachers etc. Your grades don't define who you are

    Indeed, they put the pressure on because the teachers need the grades.

    I agree; I didn't get any A*'s at GCSE (I did get some A's though), and my A Level results aren't great either, but I got into university, so it's not essential that your grades are "perfect".

    Exactly, and my A-levels aren't looking great
