Can anyone give me any advice on how to calm down? I failed my Maths GCSE on August 22nd 2019, so I retook my maths, obviously. Please help me.

I got a grade 6 in my English lang, which meant I didn't have to resit when I entered college. However, I don't believe I got a grade 4 in Maths. I probably got a grade 3, again.

I got a grade 3 the first time, so I can easily get a grade 3 again. For some reason, my college still allowed me to do A levels though. My Maths papers were easy but I still made many mistakes.

Another reason why I think I got a grade 3 again is because I got a U in my mock 25/240.

The results are coming out in 3 days (16/01/20), which means they're coming out this Thursday. I hate the saying "What's done is done" because it doesn't really help. I'd be devasted if I had to resit my Maths again this year. I'm not going to lie, my Maths teacher is a lovely person at times but she can't teach. She just walks around the classroom and moves on when she wants to.

I might update my progress on here because I'm only going to look back at this blog and I want to see how far I've come. I've decided that if I get a grade 4 or higher in my Maths, (which is very unlikely) I will inform everyone on this blog. I believe I'm defined by my failures and the next three days are important to me. Fingers crossed that I'll get my grade 4.

Inshallah.

good luck!! try not to think about it too much as stress won't affect or change the grade, and you've still got more opportunities to resit if needed.

Hi bro. Don't worry at all. GCSE is not the primary goal. When U take IB or A level those grades will be much more meaninghful for your further education. Im just chilling out. If you are talking about where to find good explainer, try my mentor on youtube: MATH Science by Daniel Dallas. He is quite dope in making clear explanation, much better than any teachers in my school. I think for further upgrade it would be usefull, bro

Thanks for the advice. I hope I won't be needing that when I get my results back.
