    So out there does anyone experience having extra time in gcse I've just been offered but I'm struggling with the anxiety of being separated from my friends because of having extra ( being the over side of the room ) I feel I will be judged and talked about because of not being mixed with everyone else (I've already experienced that in primary and it really mocked my confident ) can anyone help ?

    Many of my friends needed extra time, nobody judged them for it. You get extra time because you need it, just explain that to your friends.Do not worry lovely, don't stress about that, get revising😊

    I have extra time because I have ADHD, and while I didn't tell my friends why I had it, they were all very sensitive about not pushing it. Eventually, when I was ready and i thought everyone was mature enough to not be stupid about things, I told everyone and it was all cool You should definitely take the extra time, even if it does make you feel a little bit like you are singled out, trust me it's definitely worth it.
