    I am supposed to be in a group for my group project in media but my group have been soo selfish with me, they haven't discussed recent updates with me at all, I found out when my best friend told me (she's not in the group project). My teacher said I can work alone, I have organised all my ideas and times but im just so scared, what if it doesn't go right and i get a bad grade!? How embarrassing?!!?!?! Am I doing the right thing? My gut instinct is telling me I am, but my mind is overthinking the whole situation!
    I am so scared.

    As long as you fulfill the criteria for the project and do it to the best of your ability, you will be fine. Your teacher wouldn't say you can do it alone if you couldn't.

    Your situation is not unusual where group work/projects are concerned. I hate group work because there is always one or more lazy sods who don't put any effort in.
    Don't get too stressed about it. Just do the best you can with it and have some confidence in yourself. X

    If they aren't putting the effort as in a group project and only doing it for themselves, and not including you, then just ignore them and move on with it.
    My grandson is doing Media and Animation at college and there are issues like that in his class - thankfully not with him.

    This is why I used to hate group work/group projects, during GCSE and before as well. I sympathize. I would personally just do it on your own, as that way you can do whatever the heck you want and you won't have to deal with the tedious conflict in group work. If you're really determine to do well, it won't matter that you're on your own. It will probably a lot more efficient to do it on your own anyway. If I were in your shoes, I wouldn't think twice about doing it individually. And plus, who really cares if you look like a loner? When you learn to stop caring what other people think of you, you'll find it much easier to work alone on things like this, and therefore get a much better grade. From my experience anyway.

    I'm glad that my A Level subjects don't really require group projects.
