    So, recently just started my a levels and the workload shot up in the first week and I managed to find my footing. I keep revising topics and we have key assessments every three weeks. Getting tired of key assessments and I keep getting really disappointed with my grades. I'm also trying to stop putting pressure on myself, which led to a C in AS maths.
    Also every I know keeps doing really well on key assessments and it keeps dragging me down.

    Hi there,

    I saw your post and it reminded me of when I was doing A-levels

    It's true, the step up from GCSE's to A-Levels is big and it's not something they warn you about but it will really help you when it comes to University.

    Key assessments may seem pointless and un-wanted stress but they're actually really useful in helping to grasp knowledge. If you don't do well then it's actually a good thing (believe it or not!). It means that you can learn from what you may have not done so well and possibly concentrate on these areas more before the real exams.

    I think its important to remember that the key assessments are there to help you, it's so much easier by testing yourself topic by topic rather than having to learn it all at the end!

    I hope this has eased your concerns a little, but try and stay focused on your end goal.

    If you want some extra advice or to ask any questions, don't hesitate to give me a shout
