Recently, I had my RS exam which no one really cares about, but I tried really hard. I did a lot of revision, I would see my friends go to parties or play playstation and I would revise ,ignoring distractions,learn everything. It was definately working because I had learnt all of the content, but in the heat of the moment I didn't look at one questino properely which oucld lead me to lose a lot of marks unfortunately for a question I defo knew.
I regret spending so much time and not getting the A star I'm used to - instead im pretty sure I will get a comfortable A, ik this sound stupid and it is a great result, but it feels like it didnt equate to the effort I put in learning the hard content for the easy stuff to come up and me to slip up.
Those people that did enjoy themselve over the summer read that questino and probably got the marks
I jus dont know how to let go of the regrets as I dont really have anyone to talk to - I talked to my mum and she gave me the general advice which hasnt helped but I dont want to bother her.

It would be very much appreaciated if anyone can give tips for letting go of the past and losing regrest

Thanks!

Ask yourself one question. Can you go back into the past and change it. Not really (Unless a time machine exists). So what do you do? Learn from your mistake and make sure it doesn't repeat again. How long can you keep regretting this. Instead you should work on yourself and improve yourself .

I know this is incredibly frustrating, I've felt it before in a chemistry exam and it's not fun. But at the end of the day you have to remember exams are not designed to help you show off all your knowledge and hard work to an examiner, that's not their priority. It's more of a passing and ranking system. Sometimes, mistakes will happen and that's perfectly normal. At the end of the day, you're the only one who truly knows how much work you put in, and you should be proud of your efforts and resilience. Chin up, you've done well!

Exactly and no effort ever goes wasted. Those who work hard eventually do receive the fruit of their hard work. Don't get demotivated. Work even harder next time.

Don't be too hard on yourself, it sounds like you've put in a lot of work to prepare for your RS exam and I'm sure you'll do well despite the mishap of misreading a question. Keep your head up high and focus on doing well in your remaining exams. Also in future, try to give yourself some downtime and do things that you enjoy/to relax - obviously if you have exams coming up, you'll want to spend more time focusing on prepping for those. But either way, please take regular breaks between studying/revising.

Edit: Corrected typo.
