    I'm currently sitting my GCSE's.

    This is a very surreal moment as in all honesty, I never envisaged myself being here as negative thoughts have corrupted my self worth and general work ethic.

    Up until a few weeks ago, I was relatively happy and content with my performance, however, the past few weeks have made previous negative thoughts reoccur. With my failure imminent, is there any point?

    I'm struggling to see a viable future and would appreciate any advice.

    Girl? You need to soldier on. I'm sick, and as a result, feeling hopeless for my exams in 2 days' time, yet I plan on giving it my all. It's just a wave you're feeling; it'll pass.

    Hey it's me again.

    I myself struggled with my GCSE's because the stress caused my OCD to go completely out of control.
    What you've got to try and remember is that you're perfectly capable of achieving high grades and to do your best to block these thoughts out of your mind.
    Yes there is a point! These exams will determine your future! You don't want to be stuck in a dead end job that you hate do you?
    These exams are some of the most important in your life!
    You can do them and you can do well in them!

    I know it's hard (trust me on that one) but you're going to have to think of positive things.
    If you do well in these exams, you can then do A-Levels and you won't have to resort to your plan B like I did.
    Failing your GCSE's sucks, big time!
    I put in a lot of work but I was suffering in silence too which impacted me. I then failed and had to go to college (which has been the worst experience of my life).

    I dont know if this will help you at all but hopefully I've given you some motivation that you can do these exams and you can pass them with flying colours!
    Don't be like me! Be the girl you know you can be!
