A-Levels will be worse than GCSE's, you'll have to spend around 1.5x to 2x on revision, and you're likely to be more lonely.

Cramming is ok towards the exams, but not way before. An hour a day should be fine, with a suitable plan. That'll increase to 1.5 hours or 2 hours in A-Levels. Don't do too much work at once, space it out, it helps retain sanity.

Remember this, don't dwell on the past. It's good to feel a sense of guilt, it improves on our future behaviours, but make sure to push it away as well, once you've learnt from your mistakes.

Friendships come and go, they will come, and that's where your focus should be.

As for the grades, they won't mean a whole lot after High School so try not to think about them too much. Ignore what other people got, they will little effect on your grades later in education.

Seriously, once you're in Year 12, you should speak to a department that would help with your mental health problems. I did this and I'm feeling better. Just one-to-one, informal conversations in my case.

Thank you very much for your advice
