    so recently i've been having serious stress issues and as i was rushing around trying to find a present for my mum (birthday tomorrow) who likes very little and i noticed my eye keeps on twitching, left one to be specific.
    I also remember it doing that when i stay up till 11 doing revision. As soon as i get a chance to forget about everything it stops. then when a problem arises it starts again.
    if nothing it's kinda useful as i can never tell if i'm just over reacting or stressing and this seems to distiniguish between them
    Any thoughts?

    getting a decent amount of sleep and eating properly should help you to manage your stress... staying up late doing work will stress you out cause you won't function as well at that time.... perhaps try going to bed earlier and doing something relaxing beforehand so you don't go to bed feeling stressed as a result of your revision ... i hope things get better for you ; I'm currently very stressed as well as I'm at uni doing maths but I'm finding it incredibly stressful and am not really grasping the content and everyone i know is getting amazing marks like 95% and i only just scraped 40% in the last bit of work we had marked :/

    quick question (im willing to put in the hours for maths)
    is the workload a lot more than maths a level or all 3 (or 4) a levels together cause if its the latter ill likely die within the first semester from some panic attack or something

    yeh the workload is just the same as doing A-levels except you don't have textbooks and are just relying on lecture notes which makes it really difficult to know how to actually ' learn ' the content

    well I haven't got a single book out of the library since coming here and my lecturers have barely mentioned books but this is something like ' bridging the gap to university mathematics ' which has been recommended but i cant really speak about that myself lol
