    Apologies, for my late response, I have not been on here for awhile. Let me say, with regard to the GCSE's, I can not give anything specific, because I came up in the American system of education which is different. But I would offer you something general, but which I think really was helpful to me at various levels of my own study. Do NOT make it too difficult, do not over focus on your studies, in terms of thinking you are not smart enough or talented enough. Put the work in, do your readings and studying, make time in your schedule to take breaks, and be confident that you are going to do well. Try to resort to, when you miss something, do not just be satisfied, for example that "oh, I made 80%"-that is NOT good enough. No, go back and see what you missed and got wrong, what area or topic of substance was being tested that you did not master? Now imagine, you learn...imagine if you had an exam of 400 questions, and you made the exceptional score of 80%...that is great...but lets look at that. You missed 80 questions, and what if, you could go back, to those 80 things you did NOT know...and in focusing on those areas you missed, the next time, you did better on the ones you missed, by just 25%, the next time you would score an 85. THAT is how you raise your scores, I mean, I am just giving an example, but I know you will understand my meaning. Best wishes to you and feel free to write me anytime, if even to just talk about Avengers Infinity War, Black Panther, flesh-eating zombies, or anything like that!

    Thank you for your response! I feel like what you said was very true because a lot of people tend to beat themselves up a lot over missed marks in exams. Thanks a lot and feel free to message me at anytime!
