I’m not every good at studying, I mainly use past papers revise, but I see students going to the library in videos and they study by just writing and typing stuff down, I keep having major panic attacks about the studying aspect of uni and if I’ll be able to keep up with everyone, I know underestimating myself makes panic attacks worse, but I can’t help but worry I won’t be able to make it at uni, yet it’s the only route to being able to be an astrophysicist for me, can people explain how I can get over this and make myself better please, I wanna get to my dream, but I’m worrying if I can do it or not

1. Get your mh and panic attacks/ anxiety under control with a defined strategy. Talk to GP or therapist for techniques to use.
2. Learn some study skills.

You are there because you got the grades. Remember your dream and then research to equip yourself with the tools you need.

I have started independent study of a ratio very close to uni in Y13. It really worked as I managed to answer teacher's guiding questions easily.
Do you think I can easily adapt to studying at uni?
