    I'm currently in my second year for A Levels and I'm studying Economics, English Language and Sociology (dropped AS Maths). I'm really stressed (plus the board has changed meaning all AS exams are examined again at the end of A2) I don't know what he problem is like I revise every single day and I get the work and some people even ask me for help but whenever I do tests/exams I always receive disappointed grades. I got DDEU for as Levels and I'm predicted only BCD for uni and my course requires mainly BBB. What shall I do like whaha the problem if I know everything but in exams I do badly. It's extra stress added with UCAS personal statements & uni!

    I get that A-levels are a stressful time, particularly around UCAS time it can feel like everything is happening at once and can be v v stressful trying to write personal statements etc.

    The good news is that you still have time and you've got the potential / work ethic there, the next step is to look at your exam technique (more specifically, look at the past papers you've done and see where you've lost marks and shape your learning around that). For example, is it that you're losing marks with case studies or long essays or missing key words in Econ? Or maybe something about English language and the exams that you just need more practice on? I would suggest having a 1 to 1 with your teacher and asking them questions about your work and how it can be improved, and you can go from there.
