Are GCSE’s as hard as they seem? How do I stop myself from panicking and getting worried?

They aren't.

The buildup creates this high stage where you envisage yourself at the bottom, with proper planning and revision you won't be worried.

How old are you?
Assuming you're about to start year 11 I'd say that they aren't as difficult as they may seem at first, provided that you put in the effort. Also the time literally FLIES by which might seem overwhelming but honestly as long as you're efficient you'll do fine. Good luck!

No, GCSEs are a walk in the park. If you leave everything till May then yeah they're hard.

Yeah, I’m only going into year ten but all the teachers make such a massive deal about it and make it seem super scary. Which is probably why I’m quite anxious/ worried!

So having completed my GCSE's and getting my results today, I would say it depends on the subject but overall the mocks are hard and this is generally to scare you into realizing how hard you have to work. It may sound cliché but as long as you keep your head down and work as hard as you can then you should do well. I worked my butt off revising and it got me 3x7's, 3x6's and 3x5's
