I need some advice

Post by Someone » Wed Mar 21, 2018 9:09 pm

Hey!
I am a student and I am strugling with my grades. I study for the tests and know everything and then when I am writting the test I get so nervous and my thoughts get so messy that I write down stupid anwsers. I known that I am better than that and I want for my grades to be higher. Did anyone else had the same problem when they were in highschool? And I can't concentrate at all and my notes are a mess. I am starting to feel dumb and worthless because with the grades that I have now I won't be able to make my dreams come true and I am questioning the meaning of life. If someone could give me some advice I would be very grateful.

Not personally but Dyspraxia and related stresd affects people in different ways and it can be difficult to think straight and recall what you want to and put that in writing when you are panickimg.

The first step is to speak to someone be that a titor, a lecturer for that class or the student counsellor/support welfare team. If you prefer you could email this or a cut down version

You are not dumb and worthless!. Please let us know how it goes and if you have further questions or concerns.
