It's fair to say, I've struggled over the last two years - to the point where I can't wait to leave Sixth Form, I hated so much of it and wanted to drop out multiple times due to my bad anxiety issues. I stayed because I was determined to succeed but, I feel like I'm doomed for failure. When I think about it all, it makes me feel so overwhelmed and sick. Last year, I got DUU and I'm resitting all of my AS exams. I managed to really impress Universities and secured offers, with my first choice giving me an offer of BB (and B in WBQ). I feel like I'm inevitably going to let everybody down and I really don't know what to do, if I do fail.

I don't think I'll get into University watch

University isn't for everyone and you shouldn't feel that to be successful you have to go to university or feel pressurised by it. Especially if at this stage you are putting in the effort and still it's not working out. I'd suggest you still give it your best this exam season. If it doesn't work out, it doesn't work out, but don't have the the shadow of doubt lingering in your mind of 'oh what if I could've tried harder', because worse than failing is the feeling of not trying hard enough.
If it still doesn't work out the way you planned it out, then try and look into apprenticeships or doing things on your own. For some people the academic life just isn't for them and they're more successful doing things by themselves. That's not to say that you should give up already.

Do or do not, there is no try
I know this was a year ago but I’m going through the same thing, I’m really struggling. I have put all my efforts in and don’t think uni’s will accept me if I don’t meet the grades. I had BCC but done law in a year and messed up my first exam , for three to go but need an A or I don’t get in( my offer is AAB, with an A in Welsh Bac and AB)
