I achieved 9A*'s and an A at GSCE. I used to be so passionate about history but I had a bit of blip when it came to my internal exams (I walked out). We had two rounds - the first round in which I walked out, I got a D (1% of a C). The second round, I got a B (3% of an A). These were A2 papers so we had to analyse 3 sources & answer 2 essay questions. I'm now worried - I lost a lot of confidence in the first round and now I feel that I am not capable of an A*. However, I am looking to study law and I want to go to a London uni. History is the only subject I could achieve an A* in. The grade boundaries are pretty strict. I usually work really hard (lost a bit of focus this year) and my school aren't really helping with support as they aren't confident in me achieving that grade - this ruins my confidence more. Should I give up on my London dream and settle? Do I even have the potential? Is an A* too hard?

It looks like you have potential! You should contact your college/school student support. Sounds like you're having problems with nervousness or something like that and it might help if you talk to the counsellor or something like that. The best thing you can do over the summer is go over the content of the stuff you're not so confident about and get a bit of a head start on your coursework.
