    So basically I am considered to be one of the top 3 students of my school according to our grades etc. Therefore I am a flag holder which is something that students "fight" for in my country.Nevertheless I don't seem to get along with physics. Seriously. Many students would say that I am so good that I cant say that my marks are bad. However, being at the last class of my school before applying to a medical school is hard. Harder than I expected. Especially when it comes to physics. Anw, so we had this test. I did study but not at my max since I had loads of other things to do i.e afternoon a levels lessons, IELTS etc. It didn't go well. Like, I never stop during a test but I really didn't know anything (I had a panic attack afterwards-mixed feelings everything was going bad at that point of my life). Today we got our tests back. It was a 9/20 (45/100) the lowest mark I've ever got. I was actually kind of chill and cool because I knew I didn't have the opportunity to give my best and my teacher understood it so I made fun of it to relieve my stress. However, a "not so good student" X, turned and told me "Wow you got a 9?" *laughing* . I was like "Yes. Why? Can't I fail?" and he goes "Eh, no you are supposed to be one of the top students". This really hurt my feelings tbh. I dont talk about it most of the times but it did. I knew my failure and I was terrified because medicine REQUIRES specific marks or else you are out. I've been really sad the last days because of how dissapointed I was about myself. I do loads of things and my marks fell. This is my final year and I NEED to keep them up. It's just so tiring. Everyone expects you to be perfect and flowless but I am a human and it hurts not being "good enough"..
