last year (year 10) wasn’t very focused at all and now my gcses are coming up in eight months. so far i haven’t had any idea what to do with my life but recently i found out i wanted to do a classics and modern languages degree at oxford, this will mean i have to teach myself french and latin (we don’t have teachers or tutors for those subjects in this country) is this too hard? should i give up?

U have so much time too at least it’s not your A-levels, just make sure all your revision is up to date and in year 11 if your class gets the work done a few months before your exams, u will have revision lessons in class so your teachers can help. Maybe just do French at A-level and u could get tutoring for French if u wanted but u could study abroad to do this degree if it benefits u.

What's giving up going to achieve? If people started giving up over things as minor as this then nobody would get anywhere.

It sounds unrealistic, but only you will know the answer to that. If it is, then refocus on something that is achievable. Speak to teachers to figure out how to catch up on subjects where you're lagging behind. You have time to sort out what you want to do at Uni. Sometimes it feels like everything in your future life depends on one decision, but it truly doesn't. Life is very long compared to this short period you're spending in education. You don't have to figure it all out now. Again, it's not realistic to plan your whole life and career at this point.
