Im really really really stressing myself out over my edexcel maths A level papers and I know they're done now and theres nothing i can do but i can't help but feel embarrassed and frustrated at myself. Ive been doing the course for 2 years and I've struggled with it so much, literally getting Ds and Es on my mocks and i feel like my actual exams have been going worse than my mocks! Seriously, its doing my head in. I need a C for it at Uni but i highly doubt I'm going to get it. And since my entry requirements have already been dropped from AAB to BBC at uni (C in Maths) Im sh***** it. I also have a ton of family pressure and i know they're going to be appalled at my grade since I'm a A/B grade student in other subjects. I feel like my other exams for Computer Science and Geography have gone great, just not maths at all. Its also worth noting that i only took Maths as its needed with CS at uni and i have literally ZERO interest in maths at all. Its always been a topic i struggled on even at GCSE i only got a 7 (A). Im just gutted because it feels like I've tried and spent 2 years on a course and all I'm going to have to show for it is a U grade.

I feel the same - I need Maths to do my degree. Need a B but not looking likely.

Same here. I got a conditional offer from Cambridge for A*AA and feel like the past two edexcel papers will bring my grade down to below a C...

It seems everyone is feeling very similar, peopleI’ve spoken to at least...best advice is to try and push on and get paper 3 done. Like you said there’s nothing you can do and so the best thing moving forward is to try and enjoy your summer... let’s hope for low grade boundaries eh?

I'm in the exact same situation man, got a 7 at GCSE and am also hoping to do computer science at degree level, these exams have been horrible... I was hoping for an A in maths but I'm not so sure now, I'm gonna have to smash paper 3 out the park. Let's pray for low grade boundaries.
