    Okay so I used to be really smart in my previous years, top classes and everything. But now that I'm in year 11 and everything's going downhill.
    I'm finding it really hard to remember things and no matter how hard I revise nothing sticks in my head.
    I've become so dumb and I fear I'm going to disappoint my mother because she's expecting so much from me and I want to give her everything in the world but I know I won't be able to because everything relies on this.
    Science is the hardest and I haven't learnt anything from it. I can't even revise properly because everything I do just doesn't work out.
    I really don't know what to do.
    I'm just going to cry myself to sleep loooooll.

    Hey. You got a lot of time to turn it around. If you start from now then you won't fail and you may end up with pretty good results.
    It's not healthy to be this down. Please try and speak to your teachers to get them to help you out on difficult subjects.
    Also, if you want PM me. I'm in year 12 now. Just finished my GCSEs and did pretty well. I can give you some advice.
    Overall, don't give up on yourself and also don't put too much pressure on yourself.
    Good luck. I hope it works out.
