    It's perfectly normal, adjusting to the workload can be quite a challenge. Just work hard and put in extra hours of revision if needed and I'm sure you'll come out on top

    dw it happens to loads and loads of people! So many people really didn't do as well as they thought they'd do at the start of the year but it all usually levels off at the end if you learn from it and start working. I was in a similar situation to you at the start of the year but have got back on track pretty soon after and am now applying to University with predicted grades: A*A*AA

    Yep - happens to most people as you make the transition between GCSE and A Level, as it's a pretty big jump up! You'll find your feet quickly, don't lose heart because your grades have dropped at the moment, you'll definitely start improving really soon although be prepared to put the work in! Good luck

    Yes it's normal to do **** at beginning of A-Levels. They are harder and different to GCSEs. By the end of the year(s) you should be working at your target grade.
