    Hi all,
    It's the final year of college now and I'm getting increasingly more nervous about my A-level results.
    My goal is to study physics at university. This year I received a B in physics an A and B in my product design and 2ds' and an e in mathematics. (the e was in C2 and the rest was C1 and S1. Currently I am finding it very difficult to manage my work. Because I am reataking C1 and C2 I am finding it really difficult to get all my work done and currently ending up with 'dept' with homework etc and am finding it very difficult to progress with my product design coursework (25% a level) this year as a result (it doesn't help that I don't like my design proposal much at the moment anyways.)

    I just feel like I'm digging myself a hole and it's only getting worse.
    I aim to get on a foundation course in physics when I finish and I have no idea what I will do if I don't make it. I really don't want to take a third year either because I'm in a sixth form college at a school I have been at since I was 10 so I'm just really eager to get out. I find it really difficult to stay optimistic this year..
    I'm trying as hard as I can to get this.
    I just wondered if any of you guys and girls might have some advice for me or if any of you are going through the same feelings.
    Thanks in advance!

    I felt the same as you. In year 13 I struggled immensely with just trying to remember everything you need to. I cried a lot and I procrastinated a lot. Just focus on the main goal. You will be fine. Put in the work and be optimistic. I walked away with A*AB after getting BCD at AS.

    Dammm. Congratulations with your a-levels. Rather fantastic. Yeah I'll try to focus on the main goal and keep my head forward. I feel like I am working allot better than I used to anyways so that's a plus.
    Many thanks!
