I’m sure you won’t fail. I understand it’s scary and super stressful but just do your best and in sure everything will be fine. I doubt it but if you don’t pass with a high enough score then, you will always have another chance.

If you need some help I know a wonderful tutor who helped me get an 8 in my gcses after being a borderline 5 student for the longest time.
