I am only in S3/ Year 10 and I, like everyone else, have end of year exams. I have been told on countless occasions that these exams barely matter and it just reflects how you have got on in the school year. I was completely fine and not stressing at all for my first two exams (which I did really well in) but then I did my two chemistry exams and feel like I completely screwed up. I revised so hard for them and (we haven't got the marks back yet) feel like it was all for nothing. I know it doesn't mean much and I have been to see my guidance and chemistry teacher about it and they both say it doesn't really matter too much. It has kind of de-motivated me for my other exams and I am having huge panic attacks over them and I can't concentrate. I am making myself ill and am having to stay off school today. I don't know what to do.
Do they actually matter?
