Exam worry

So I have my first exams next Monday and Tuesday I’m really scared I’ll flunk but it feels like I’m too relaxed it hasn’t sunk in like everything else and I’m gonna go in that hall and burst into tears. I can’t focus on lessons most of the time and I feel like I just need to leave school as soon as I can but every days just a replay with different lessons . Doesn’t help that we have summer now so I sweat a bunch so I worry about my image and it just gets me really irritable
I fear not the dark
But what may lurk within

    @lovenature773 I know how you feel. When I sat my Biology exams recently (in April and May) I felt not as stressed as I thought I would be and super relaxed and it didn't really sink in that I was sitting exams until I sat them. My advice for you would be if you're not able to focus in lessons write down what you were due to learn in lesson or ask someone to tell you and try learning it in your own time. This way you can be in an environment where you will be able to focus as much as you can. This weekend is an opportunity to revise what you don't know, there is no use going over what you know (maybe before the exam) because you already know it! Make a game plan that is realistic for you and maximise the amount of time you can revise. But I urge you to also remember not to spend all your time revising. It's not beneficial to cram because that quickly leads to burnout. Revise what you know you can revise, watch revision videos and make notes on the video either during or after you have watched it, these really helped me when I wasn't able to focus on a specific topic, and remember to take time out to have a break. I hope this helps, sorry for the information overload.
    I hope your exams go well and I'll be thinking of you!!! <3

    @lovenature773 I completely get it! I have a biology, chemistry and physics exam! Sometimes it feels like the science teachers are plotting against me, not to mention that they are all close together! Just try to calm down and start small chunks of revision (10 minutes reviewing flashcards and testing yourself).

    Hi all,

    Sorry, I am late to this post. I hope the exams went well for you @lovenature773. Thanks for providing support and comforting responses @naomi and @maryam852. Your responses were wonderful to see. @ellie2000, you are right in that there is more to life than grades and that grades do not define us or our worth. However, things do matter. You are human and education helps you to unlock more opportunities through increased knowledge and skills. What are your passions? In an ideal world, without barriers, who would you like to become?
