Hey Scott,
I know school suck... it makes us all feel bad, but it seems to be really getting to you.

It seems a waste to drop out now, after you've made it so far. You may as well take the exams, even if you don't think you'll get good grades. And, if it all does go badly, oh well! There's always other things you can do. Relax, if you take the view that it's not that important, it'll all seem a lot easier.

You seem to be getting so stressed about getting through your education, but at the end of the day, education isn't everything. Some people never even bother to do their A levels, so you're doing well already.

I think you need to talk it out with someone that'll listen. If you want, email me and we can chat. (This site confuses me, so I usually just email )

I agree, it's nearly over so I don't think you should drop out now. If you don't have any or many topics left to cover in your subjects then maybe you could ask for study leave and just spend time going through everything at home.
