    What happened? Perhaps you are putting too much stress on your self on getting A* and not on the actual work.

    Time to realistically prepare yourself for the possibility of disappointment - and accept that happiness isnt based on A level results.

    You know that you gave it your best shot. August should be about 'reward for personal best' not a feeling you have failed because you didnt achieve some mythical 'success' benchmark. PS Plenty of people who get 3 As (or whatever) are never happy. Dont use things like this to gauge your own life's 'success'. Its about far bigger things than that.
