    Hey, thanks for taking the time to read this.

    I'm Charlie and I'm 17, and at the moment I'm 2 days away from my first A2 exam. I study Psychology (AQA), Politics (Edexcel) and English Literature (Edexcel). I have 5 exams, with the last one being on the 17th of June, my 18th birthday. Last year I got AABB (I dropped history after AS), and for university I need ABB which (I hope) is a fair target.
    I have ASD (autism spectrum disorder) which can makes things really difficult for me, and is associated with stuff like anxiety and depression. Exam season isn't the easiest time for me and that's part of why I'm making this blog, to keep myself motivated, and in hoping it could help any other kids with ASD also doing their AS/A2/GCSEs/other exams at the moment. Maybe I should've started this a bit earlier but I can say that about pretty much everything I do (including revision :rolleyes:). If anyone also has any questions about tips on coping with ASD related problems during exam time (or any time really) then I can do my best to help out. I'll just update about how I'd dealing with the exams as I do them and how things are going, along with maybe a couple of things I do over summer, and hopefully my start at university.

    Thanks again
