    Talk to your coach and school and see what changes you can make to be better organised etc. It may come to a point where you have to decide its your education or your sport. You should also ask on the swimming forums how other swimmers coped.

    Id have thought your education was more important but its your choice. Dont hide in your sport if the real problem is you cant cope with A levels or have chosen the wrong course or school. be honest with yourself. If you are year 13, then consider a break or just not competing.
