    So i devoloped this weird hyper active ocd earlier this year. It made me overthink everything, and before i knew it i would get 100% in any essay i wrote because of how many compulsive thoughts guided each sentence

    The problem is this OCD spilled over into other areas of my life and made me go a bit insane and depressed, i tried to talk it out with friends/family/therapists but i left it too late

    I screwed up my science exams because i geniunely could not focus at all(I had gotten A*'s in them at first but after my OCD i pummelled down), but since the OCD always guided my polticis i got 100% accross all exams and got the best mark in the country

    Quite ****ed up.

    How do I pick my self up? I got into York despite having two D's on my grade s thankfully, but its not where i wanted to be

    Obvsiously I need treatment, and to have some fun to take the edge off

    Is it worth retaking those exams i screwed up or just accept what happenned?

    It depends what you want, if you're starting university then don't retake A levels, they're irrelevant once you get your degree anyway. If you really want to get into a better university (and believe you can - York is a decent place to be) ro think it would be easier to work on your OCD at home then take a year out to resit and work on yourself.
