    I'm from Spain and I recently found out that I could be eligible for Cambridge if I keep my grades up. Biggest mistake ever. Now I can't get myself to study because of the fear of getting a B. Right now it's eight o clock here and I've got a history exam tomorrow. I haven't started studying. I am overpowered by anxiety and I think that if I don't get over this I won't be able to cope with Cambridge. Somebody please help I don't know what to do. I've been having all-nighters for the past couple weeks just to keep up. It's taking a toll on me. The only way I am able to start studying is when I know I only have five hours before the exam and the adrenalin kicks in. Has anyone else felt this way? how can I cope? Are there any posibilities of getting an A if I start now? should I miss the exam and do it another day? Help

    You need to get into a routine of studying, even when an exam is not close. Useless advice now but it will help you in the future so that you avoid being in the situation where you have to be close to an exam to start studying for it.

    If you're having to pull constant allnighters then you need to really think about what's occupying your time in the day and how you can shift it around.
