I am 13 years old (in year 8) and I have these tests coming up called the PPE's. I am terrified for them. I normally get anxious and have panic attacks due to small tests, even just for vocabulary in my language subjects so I am really scared. As I missed the end of year 7 I have never sat these exams before and they are important for sets.
I am in the top sets for most subjects. Luckily, my family aren't pushy about getting good grades they don't really mind how I do but I still get worried I will disappoint them and myself. I believe I shouldn't be in my sets as everyone else is smarter than me. I feel silly about feeling this way because I shouldn't and it is weird.
I know everyone will say don't worry but the problem is I can't get my mind off it. When I try doing something else I start physically shaking, feeling sick and start to uncontrollably cry. I really don't know what to do at this point because t is just taking me over. It is a horrible feeling and I hate it so so much.
Writing this now is making me feel really embarrassed. If anyone knows how to help me I would greatly appreciate it. I'm so sorry.
