    I'm doing AS level right now and I don't know why but I'm having second thoughts. Even though I'm predicted good grades for this yr (in bio, chem & math), I feel as though I might be capable of doing okay this yr, but the main grade is based on A2 exams. I fear that I will make it through to A2 BUT then mess up on the exam. I've had a glimpse of some A2 books and it looks quite difficult. 😓😓😓 I really don't want to waste two years of "hard work" and have to find out at the end that I didn't get good grades. I'm already 19 and will be 20 by the time I finish. I'm just really doubting myself. I've lost many days of sleep because of this 😔😣 What if I don't get the grades I wanted? What should I do then? Will I make it to university? Help please

    There's a bit of panicking going on here. A level is difficult, but you wouldn't expect it to be easy, would you? It's all a question of progress - you're not at that level quite yet, so of course it's going to look intimidating. If you picked up a first-year undergraduate level textbook at the beginning of your GCSEs you wouldn't understand much of it and think you'd never be able to understand it, but then you'd feel quite differently when you got to it.

    Concentrate on mastering your AS material, and things will begin to fall into place naturally.
