    I've never had anxiety attacks before until recently I always have a nervous feeling in the pit of the stomach. I dont know what to do about it . Currently I'm doing my A levels I'm in year 12 and I did my GCSEs last year and even though I was nervous I never panicked so much.

    Have you spoken to your GP? Anxiety attacks can be really horrible, so it would be beneficial to get some help with it. A GP would be a good place to go to get help with this. Have you spoken to your sixth form/college about this as well? There's likely some support that they can put into place for you, and with some backing up from the doctor you might be able to get things like a room with less people in it for your exams to help you out a bit

    I would just like to support the previous poster's advice. There's a multitude of options that can be explored at the GP. I definitely think you've identified it correctly, it does sound like anxiety. This is something that can absolutely be treated, be it through some therapy, or medication.
    Also, let your school know - It may be possible to get you extra time during your exams or measures put in place to make the exam season a little bit easier.
