Hello, I hope everyone is staying safe due to the corona virus. I'm really stressed and not sure how to revise. Since school is now closed, I don't know how to learn, also my teachers are setting us a huge amount of revision, which I'm grateful for, but I'm not learning anything new. I'm getting stressed out because I'm supposed to be learning.
I have an extremely low confidence and this is making it all worse.

I'm in year 10 right now and if school opens before June, I have my year 10 mocks. The subjects I'm mostly worried about are: Combined science, maths, music and English.

If anyone has any advice for me please tell me. It honestly can be anything. I've been getting panic attacks and I don't know how to calm myself down.

If anyone read this, thank you for spending time reading and I hope you and your family are safe.

Can you e-mail teachers and ask for help? Are they just sending work rather than online lessons?

That’s what my school is doing, I’m in year 12. Honestly there’s no motivation to do it, even when I have the teachers phoning constantly

Try to google or watch videos like Youtube to learn new things. Eat well, rest, and breathe in breathe out when you feel stressed.

Use Seneca Learning for your revision - I found it so helpful in year 11!

There are a lot of online resources you can use (e.g Primrose Kitten, freesciencelessons) if you're worried about learning all the content. If you have the CGP books, they are useful too. For English try revise quotes and themes then maybe attempt some past paper questions.

Have you tried talking to anyone about how you're feeling, family and friends? If not you can always contact charities to just vent.

I do but they just send me random PowerPoint and reply like a week later or they don’t reply at all some teachers do but not the ones I really need help on

OK - I can point you to some good websites for Maths - which topics?

Thanks so much I’ll be sure to check out those recourses and yes I’ve talked to my friends and they are doing what they can but the feeling just doesn’t seem to go away.

Hiya, I'm alright thanks though it's definitely not been an easy time for everybody out there due to Covid-19 but try to take it easy even though it's difficult.

1. You mention that your teachers are setting a huge amount of revision. Do you think the problem is that it's just a bit overwhelming and/or do you just not find it helpful assuming that you're knowledge is secure for the topics covered in revision?
-> Either way, your teachers are always there for you (even if you don't feel that sometimes) and I highly recommend getting in contact with them. Even if in your case, being honest about the revision that's being set and how it's not really helpful for you?

2. I can completely understand the nerves with mock exams and it's completely normal. For combined sciences, maths and English, I would recommend Seneca Learning (covers GCSE/A-Levels), FreeScienceLessons (YouTube), Primrose Kitten (YouTube) and Mr Bruff/Stacey Reay (YouTube) but there's also a tonne of other resources out there. If you have a subscription for Hegarty Maths, I would make use of that. As for music, I'm sure someone else can give appropriate advice about how to go about with that.

Hope this is helpful and useful to you. Sending best wishes to you and your family.

I think the problem is that the revision is so overwhelming and I guess you’re right about teachers always being there for. I’m going to email them tomorrow making sure they know that I’m struggling. Thanks for the websites I’ll make sure to check them all out. 😊x

you can post your trig and quadratics questions on the forums here, people do answer! If you have any music/combined science questions, post those on the forums too...probably more help than your teachers, really!
