    Hi, I got AABB for my A-Level mock, without revision (not to brag) well it was the night before when I revised for each of them.

    Even though I got two grades up in each subject from last years mock. I feel more nervous than ever for these A2 exams. I am scared I will make a mess of them last year in my AS' I got AAAB which all count for half.

    I don't know what to do why I'm so anxious and panicky. Even though in my eyes I've been doing really well.

    AS exams usually count for 40% rather than 50% OP

    Stress/Anxiety is normal. Every student feels that way to a certain extent. Keep practicing and you'll be fine. I suggest you do sport regularly, helps a lot of people with dealing with stress.

    Heya,

    I know it's hard and there's tons of pressure to do well (especially in year 13 with uni offers etc) but you just need to believe that you can do it! If you can get those grades with minimal effort you will be absolutely fine. Your mindset is just as important as what you know so try and visualise doing well in your A2 exams and try not to dwell on the 'what if' I don't do well thoughts - try as best you can to stay postive

    I'm only in year 12 so I haven't got to year 13 yet but if you ever need anyone to talk to, you could always pm me- sometimes talking about things make you less anxious

    Hope this kinda makes you feel better

    I struggle with it too, but you've just got to think that you can and you will be able to do it

    Just think of the positives. You did well without much revision so if you take your time and make sure you revise properly, there's no way you can do worse. You will most likely do even better.

    Everyone gets anxious about exams. Just remember that it's not the end of the world if you mess up. There's always clearing for universities and if not, you can always take a gap year and retake your exams. And during that year gain a lot of valuable experience working too which makes it a lot easier to get placements and graduate jobs.
