I’m going into year 12 in September and am doing a level history, law, English lit and psychology and everyone keeps going ooo and you’re going to wanna die. I’ve gone through a depression causing me to want to before and I don’t need it to push me over the edge again with the stress.

Probably not to that extreme. Hope you like your subjects though.

You won't be that extreme hopefully but you probably will get rather stressed and cry a few times. That's okay as long as you remain focused. Don't let your emotions control you.

Did you find GCSEs hard? People tend to overexaggerate the difficulty of A-levels. Please don't stress over it.

No. Just work hard and keep on top of it; you will be golden.

Four very interesting subjects. You should look forward to learning lots of new things.

They weren’t too bad but the new 9-1 system in it is so much worse

Well yeah, exams have gotten harder after having previously gotten easier. (too easy in the opinion of some people)

The good thing is that it'll leave you better prepared for further study.

But not on this forum. It can be misconstrued , so try and be a tiny bit responsible.

I do History, English Lit and Politics, so similar to you just without a 4th subject. And I will say that no matter how much you enjoy History, the A Level will kill you. Maybe do 3 subjects instead of 4. I was doing 4 in my half term of college, was doing philosophy, and it completely ****ed me.

Yeah I’ve gone through wanting to but I can still understand that it’s just a figure of speech

That doesn't make sense. A figure of speech which can be misconstrued is still a figure of speech. What's this not on this forum tosh on about.

Considering there are students who are genuinely upset and disturbed, then comments about killing yourself are unhelpful. Such posts are removed.
