Had a telephone call from my daughter this morning and she was so hysterical I thought she had been attacked or something equally awful.

When eventually i could make out what she was talking about she was so upset about an exam she had taken this morning at University which she thought ewould be the easiest module but which she says she struggled to answer.

She is now distaught about the rest of the modules and feels she will fail.

These exams mean so much as she needs to pass to go to America to study for a year.

I am so upset that I cannot be there to comfort her and don''t know what to say.

It is so hard as she does not have a great relationship with her Dad and will not speak to him, so I get all the hassle and he lives a care free life.

I feel sick with worry about her.

Dont worry I had the same when my daughter was at uni and I know you just want to rush up and help her, I am sure that she hasn''t done as bad as she thinks and sometimes they need this to focus back on the fact that they are at uni to study and sometimes its not all play and no work.

Tell her to go and speak to her lecturer, they will reassure her as they know how her work has been going through the term its what they are there for.

could you send her a little something in the post to cheer her up something silly or a stupid photo of you both?

Thanks Driven40

I told her to see her lecturer and she said "what difference would that make". I told her to ask other students how they thought it went but she said they would think she was thick.

She has been revising so hard and has not been out for over a fortnight I am so worried about her as I don''t know how she will react if she misses this chance to study abroad.

Am feeling so down now I can''t think straight.

I am sure she will be fine, maybe a night out would do her good? Sometimes they get so run down living in halls etc I know my eldest did, she was always coming down with some bug or another, talking to her lecturer will help honest (I work with them), so I know that most of the time it isn''t coursework they are talking about its other problems, they become almost surrogate parents and as for the other students, they won''t think she is thick they will think, thank god it wasn''t only me who struggled.

Thanks Driven

I will ring her tonight and try to persude her, I wondered if she would be able to resit but she is supposed to go to America in August so I guess she hasn''t the time.

Panic after an exam is pretty common. In my experience those who panic thinking of all they could have done but didn''t have often done quite well. It''s the ones who are super confident that are more of a problem.

What was she like after exams at school?

Your children will always cause you the most heartache but give you the most pleasure. It is wonderful that your daughter can speak to you (you are the one she phones) and you can give her the reassurance she needs. You are obviously very proud of her and quite right too!!

I am sure her results will be just fine but if not then other opportunities will present themselves and she can pursue her dreams !
