    Hi guys,I am currently in year 13 in a relatively small sixth form, studying English literature, Psychology and As Mathematics as well as completing an EPQ. Due to unfortunately not getting the required grade last year in As maths I have had to resit. This means that I need to work hard to gain good grades in order to get into university(like everyone else). But here's the situation my mum and Dad obviously want the best for me and have decided that I need to start a shed load of revision. I'm talking getting home from school at half three and revising non stop till 8:30. and on weekends doing at least 4 hours of work. Now I know most of you are going to say things like be thankful I have pushy parents etc and how that's the equivalent of what you do , but I'm finding it rather difficult to keep calm when I have what I think is quite a lot of pressure on me. This revision/extra work is prohibiting me from doing things a kid of my age would be out doing, for example I have seen a lot less of my gf recently as I work weekends too( I'm a self employed handyman/gardenerXD ) and I'm just finding it quite stressful I should also mention that I have a few diagnosed mental health issues that make me quite susceptible to anxiety and stress. Is anyone in the same boat or does anyone have any advice

    Well if it's having that much of an adverse impact on your mental health, then you should explain to your parents because you would probably end up having a mental breakdown (resulting in worse grades).
    Take it easy with the gardening, if it's not an absolute necessity, then it's going to be an obstacle and the less you have on your plate the less you will worry (although gardening can be quite therapeutic).
