    I'm so scared of what will happen if I get bad GCSE grades, I literally have no idea what I'd do if it happened.
    I'm trying so hard to revise and get on top of stuff but I still have this crippling fear that I'm gonna fail or get a low grade.
    I have so much competition, my brother got good grades, my friends are all doing well in their mocks.
    I don't even think my parents will wanna look at me with C grades , it's stupid but I'm just so worried.

    Its understandable, but the sky doesnt fall in if you do poorly.
    Worrying isnt very helpful and wont get you any more marks.

    Be organised. have a good plan and consistently revise.

    If you just try your best then that's all you can do.

    Practice papers help you understand where you fall short ot how good you are and then you can improve.

    No time for worry now, leave it till after the exams. Lots of students worry far too much an still do well. have a bit of confidence in the hard work you have put in and the effectiveness of your revision.

    Try your best. I was told that from GCSEs till my degree and it’s all a person can really do. If your best isn’t as good as other peoples so what? GCSEs will not matter in years to come unless you want to do medicine at oxbridge or something like that. I didn’t get great results but I’m in my final year of my degree right now. It doesn’t hold you back as much as you think it does.
    Don’t compare your results to others, it’s not helpful and will only make you miserable. Concentrate on YOUR life and how YOU do, these people won’t be in your life forever.

    Don't be scared. All you gave to do is revise, get sleep and believe in yourself. x
