    I am currently in year 12 studying for alevels in maths bio chem and psychology. I am not doing too great academically as i'm averaging around C's , sometimes lower. I have no friends at my current school so i spend break and lunch alone in the library. This makes me feel incredibly sad and lonely. I also have no idea what i want to do at uni and the pressure from my parents is killing me.
    I have nothing going for me and not even friends to support me through this. I don't know what to do.

    Keep the hope. School is just one little aspect of life - there is much more out there. In a matter of months the world is yours, whether you choose uni or college or work or travelling or whatever. You can get to where you want to be - remember, there is not one true 'path'. Worst case scenario you fail all of your exams and don't get into uni this year - that's okay. There are several other paths to higher education and you can get there. Best case? You pull yourself upwards and onwards, pass with flying colours and pursue the Next Thing immediately - and that's great. Hold out for that best case scenario, but if you don't get it, know that it's okay, and the Best Case isn't a destination to be reached just by one road. Look after yourself and keep the hope x
