    I'm only 4 weeks into Year 13 and yet the stress and pressure of it all is really affecting me. Ever since the school year started I've felt so sick and on edge all of the time and I have this constant feeling that I'm going to fail that I can't get rid of.

    It's really affecting my motivation as every time I try to study I just feel like it's completely pointless. Right now it's 9pm and I have so much homework due for tomorrow that I just can't get started on. I really don't know what to do nor why I feel like this. I mean, my grades aren't awful and I have the predicted grades I need to apply for what I want to do so I really don't know what's the cause or how to stop this

    you worrying about your A levels shows that you really want to do well so thats a good start,
    you seriously need to set a timetable for yourself and try your best to follow it so that you have time to do your work and time to relax, trying to find a balance between them is a really important skill that you need to figure this out before work starts to pile up. Do you have any frees in between lessons? i found that doing most of your homework in college then revising at home worked best for me.
    also its important that you start, start small, start confused but START! you cant learn to drive or go anywhere in your car without starting your engine first (sorry thats a bad example lool). you have your teachers, you have your friends and you have textbooks for support so there is no reason you wont do well, keep a positive mindset which I know is sooo hard in college aha but it will make it easier to study. try to enjoy your subjects and remind yourself why you chose those subjects in the first place.
    Goodluck!
