Hi, I’m in year 11 and I’m feeling really overwhelmed.
I struggle really badly with anxiety at school. My predicted grades are mostly 6’s and 7’s but I’m achieving 3’s at average. I cannot cope with exam situations, and I tend to have panic attacks and forget everything on the paper, resulting in me getting bad scores. I have tried speaking to my teachers on several occasions, but because I have such high predicted grades and I work well in class, they don’t take me seriously. They think I’m doing fine and don’t mind me getting 3’s in my current mocks. But I do! The courses I would like to do at college require high grades and I don’t feel I can achieve them working at the level I am currently. I am feeling really overwhelmed and stressed about year 11, exams and how I’m going to deal with the actual GCSE’s.
What should I do?

Could you get help from your GP?

My mum does not want me to visit the doctors because Coronavirus is quite bad in my area and my anxiety stops me from having a phone appointment, I feel like I can’t and I wouldn’t want my family listening in if I did

There should be a pastoral support network or counsellor at your school. See if they can help

No problem! I’m a lot older than you and I found my GCSEs a struggle so I understand the feeling. I wish you all the greatest of success with your GCSEs and you get the grades you want. You’ll do brilliantly!

Best of luck!
