I got a bad mark because of serious pressure from my class.

I only got 51/80 in my Physics mock, including a 10/10 in multiple choice.
I have passed a DP in Physics (which is a gifted programme in HK) with something equivalent to a 2:1 in UK, but this paper is also quite hard, harder than the real A-level exams. Because of the pressure from my class to get the top grade, I performed awfully. But my class felt relieved as even someone with a DP can only get this mark. They sighed after thinking, “Even Mr 2:1 can only get this mark, so it is normal to fail!”

Don’t panic about it. And let the pressure go. Once you’ve got a uni degree no one cares about your A-levels, and once you’ve got a job and experience, no one cares about your degree. They’re just hurdles to jump on your way, but, enjoy them while you can, because once you’re a grown up you lose the freedom just to learn.

I sang Manchester United, Manchester City and Everton chants as a forfeit.

I feel embarrassing as a Liverpool fan to sing them, especially Glory Glory Man Utd.

I am now pressurised again to get 100% UMS in at least 1 unit in Physics.
I will be starting another physics course in the 2020/21 academic year at the same university. They also knew that I passed an 8-week EDX undergraduate course of second year level in the past summer, while only using 3 weeks to complete it.

I am now pressurised to get at least 570/600 UMS in Physics AL. It used to be 580 last week but after I got an awful assignment mark in the gifted course, they lowered my requirement to 570.
How can I stop that?

Just do as best you can. Just because you’re predicted that, doesn’t mean you have to or will get it.
Ignore your predictions and study like you normally would.
