    Take a break, don't do any work for a day or so and do things you enjoy to just de-stress.
    Then after that work at a slow pace to ease yourself back into a routine. Don't go into hardcore revision straightaway.

    Also if you find that you have a lot to do, set your priorities and go through them in small intervals so you don't overwhelm yourself with how much you have to do.

    I felt exactly the same when I was doing my A Levels, due to both the A Levels themselves, and other factors such as issues with friends and problems at home. I suffered from both stress and depression throughout my time in sixth form, however I did manage to get through it. It may help if you think about what you want to do beyond A Levels, such as a degree or job, to give yourself a good reason for getting the work done and to help get some of your motivation back.

    Also, don't be afraid or embarrassed to seek help if you feel like you're getting overwhelmed, there are many ways to get support for issues such as stress, whether that's from within your college, your doctor, family, or online self help resources, for example

    It's understandable it gets hard, but to cope under stress the best thing to do is to ensure you are well organised,it will deduce a lot of pressure. Use your time wisely

    Yeah trust me, I know the feeling.
    But I seriously, seriously, do recommend taking a break. You'll be thankful for it later on since you don't want to burn yourself out by exam season.

    Keeping things organised is a great start! Just make sure you get things done at your own pace that's comfortable for you. :console:
