Hi there! I'm 18 year old autistic A-Level student.
I'm setting this thread up as a way for other autistic and neurodiverse students to meet each other, share experiences and offer support for one another in there exams.

I'll give you some of my experiences to get us going. I'm feeling progressively more exhausted every day and am not sure how I'll cope in exams with the extreme tiredness I'm getting because of all the mental strain I'm under.

I'm also already stressing about uni which is 4 months away too.

I do hope this can help other neurodiverse peeps

My A levels were a few years ago now, but they were definitely a particularly rough time as an autistic student, so I'm wishing you the best of luck!

I was doing A levels and I was given no support and apparently no one had seen my medical evidence for my autism. I didn't do that well on my main exam. I am just finished a level 3 btec course and going uni after the summer. I feel awkward as I'll be a bit old then some other students.

There's no need to feel awkward, people take lots of different routes to uni so you'll be around first years of a real mix of ages (not to mention societies have students of every year plus post grads). I started uni this year at nearly 21 and have friends from 18 to 28, nobody notices the difference if you don't tell them
