    I am new to AS this is my second week in school and I fell very bad after being thought a ton of stress. I am doing Business Studies (NO COURSEWORK-NEW SPECIFICATION), Mathematics, Psychology for my A levels and planning to add one which is Russian as Russian language is my second language I think I will get a B+ in it.

    I am finding all of my subjects very hard at the moment, it feels like I am going to fail them for some reason.......... Is this ok? Finding A levels hard mostly the first few weeks? By the way I did not do that well in my GCSE's (I got 2As, 3Bs, 3Cs)

    Any advice on how to get though AS (first year of A level)
    I mean I have a normal social life got my best mates in my class but at the end of the day I am here worrying and stressing because I NEED TO GET AT LEAST 2AS TO GET INTO UNI OF READING OR UCL FOR FINANCE BASED COURSES!

    You need to make sure you are understanding the content, there is nothing wrong with always asking the teacher questions

    keep at it.. do all homework + summary questions
    Try and understand content (use teacher, youtube, books)
    Relax a bit, don't get stressed, have a positive mind set and think about what you need to do.
    Set yourself tasks each day and try and meet them.
    Stay on top of the work, sleep well and eat well.
