I’m a student, I have just finished my A level exams . Trust me when I say it was stressful I seriously mean it. I get the whole idea that exams are important, they’ve been around for so many years . Passing your exams just gets you an easy path in getting a job and being stable .
But as a student we don’t only stress about our exams , we stress about other things as well that are related to it . Because I’m a year 13 student , I have stressed about my exams , my grades , university applications, whether or not I may be going to university at all , worrying about the consequences etc . This year I have had several meltdowns.
Nowadays a lot of teachers are leaving 6 form or colleges . I personally have experienced that, nearly 4 of my teachers from 2 subjects have left in the period of a year . My AS grades were A , B and C . But because lack of teachers and head teachers leaving especially in my school , this has put in immense burden and affect towards me and has increased my stress levels and anxiety .
My last exam was on Monday 18/06 , even though I have finished my exams I still am stressing . I don’t even know why ! . I guess stressing for my grades and what the outcome would be on results day is the cause .
Exams nowadays have gone REALLY hard . A level content is equivalent to university content , GCSEs have gone equivalent to A levels , and SATS have gone equivalent to GCSE . The exam board need to be a bit more lenient on students , they need to give us some sort of breather .
Weird thing is thought I had finished my exams , but clearly not because today I got an urgent email from my 6 form head . Stating that my entire class would need to come back on Thursday as the moderator has given feedback . Right now my anxiety has literally gone to the roof .
I feel like giving up and not do anything .
