I can't do this anymore

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone


First post here. I am 17 and in my junior year of IB. I just completed the first semester exams and did absolutely rubbish. I created around 20 pages of revision by hand and said to myself I would study more for this exam than any other. Here are my awful results.



Economics: 3 (yikes!)
English: 4 (close to a 5)
ESS: 4 (very close to a 5)
French: 6
Maths: 5
I take economics, English, and visual arts for my HL. I expect visual arts to get a 6 or 7, but I need to raise my grades in English from a 4 to a 6 and in economics from a 3 to at least a 5. I have no clue how I'm gonna do that in time for my predicted grades.
I have no ambition in anything. I'm currently thinking about studying music but I really really don't want to do anything. I have no ambition. I don't want to go to college. Everything I've ever tried I've failed at. I am suicidal again. I see no future for me. Help me please

I think you're grades are ok! You need to speak to someone in your school about how you're feeling, and they can definitely help you with bringing up grades, bettering your mental health, thinking about after IB etc.

Don't worry friend, it's all going to be ok, and if you need anything I'l be here.

The most important part of your IB is to show your progression. Even though your grades are low or decent for certain subjects, practice past papers to get techniques or questions that might be in your test, since teachers always give you IB style or IB past paper questions, rather than making too many pages of revision notes.



And keep working hard, as you do right now.
