    Do you guys ever feel just completely incapable even though you are, for eg I’m aiming for straight A*’s at gcse, it’s a dream but as in there’s always something dragging you back, despite months of consistent study, argh, and everyone else, I go to a Grammar and have some incredibly able student and they’re just so chill it just isolates u if you get what I mean😫 just me?

    no. take it on the chin and aim to improve next time.

    I think I get you, even though I have the grades to do a level maths, I feel like I'm not smart enough to sometimes because there are so many people in my class that are better than me atm. I suppose i just remind myself that they wouldnt let me do the course if i wasn't good enough and that what other people do doesn't affect my ability to achieve what i want

    honestlyyy igy igy, anxiety is lit isnt it!!!!
    you seem like a clever guy, and at the end of the day youll go 100x further than anyone who has no motivation and anything
    plus GCSEs arent that deep loool im jus waiting for the real stress to kick in at a levels
