Panicking - failing A-levels

I’m retaking my a-levels and I’m on a gap year. I severely underestimated how hard A-levels are and I’m panicking that I’m gonna get a B again or lower this year. I was revising here and there since February but not properly and I don’t know what to do. I’m retaking biology and chemistry. Biology paper 1 went okay but chemistry paper 1 was horrible and I think I got like 40%. My offer for my firm is 2 As and I just hate myself so much for not being more organised and disciplined. I honestly loathe myself and I feel really depressed and anxious. Can someone give me some direction please ? I am trying to do as many past papers as I can.
Literally in the same boat as you. I think best thing to do is talk to ur college about it? Idk myself tbh...

You need to rest for real it sounds like you’re on a path to a burn out, if u stress more. Getting your desired results is not the end of the world believe me. There’s foundation years or directional courses that you can pass in order to get into ur desired course. For real it’s going to be okay, but I’m sure you’ll get the results you want either way im sure you put in all your effort believe me 10 years down the one you’re gonna look back and think how silly it was to stress. You’re good I promise.

I’m just gonna focus on memorising the content tbh and then looking at filled out past papers.
