    Hi everyone,

    I am currently doing the new gsce for english and maths but I am not worried that I won't be able to get the grades I need to take certain subjects at A level. I've been stressing out and been having break downs because I'm worried about not going to do well in school, I've asked my parents for tutors but they said no. Right now i don't know what to do. I'm really scared but I still don't want to give up
    Can anyone help me with advice or help?

    You need to try to calm down, because you can't perform your best when you're stressed. You need to make sure you're eating enough healthy food - maybe try a vitamin supplement if you struggle to get your 5 a day. Make sure you get enough sleep. You also need to plan breaks, because you can't study all of the time. Make sure you have regular time to see friends, watch TV, play sports etc.

    You'll find loads of helpful websites like GCSE Bitesize. You might also want to buy a revision guide or textbook. Work through them, and if you find anything you don't understand, ask - you can ask your teacher, your friends, or even people on TSR! When you're a bit more confident in your knowledge, you might want to try past papers.
