Ever since I started high school I've been experiencing panick during maths periods. And I hit a failing point in start of 10th grade and that the first time in years I ever broke down in front of my mother. I'm in 11th grade now and it just keeps getting worse. I practice, I have extra classes my parents pay a lot for to try help me and I feel bad they doing it for me. I really do. I sometimes ask questions. I also try attempting on the board. My teacher does put a lot of pressure on me and saying "If you fail this test, know your place." He teaches quick too and I'm a slow learner ngl. Then when the tests or quizes come, I feel a huge wave of panick to the point I forget how to spell my name and wanna run out. And now I'm just scared of maths and thinking about dropping to maths lit but deep down I really wanna continue with core maths. My physics teacher does help me a lot with calculations and I've went from 20% to 64%(in physics) . I don't wanna give up. I've tried many ways to cope but I still fail. And i notice I tend to compare myself to my classmates so much and dumb myself down and now it's affecting my other subjects too. My 11th grade marks are important I need them to apply for university. I'm feeling so hopeless and depressed rn and i don't know what to do anymore. I pray and pray but don't feel heard. Please advise me.

I know your pain. I know 1 1=2 but something in my head tells me they changed that overnight but no-one told me.
The top I was given is if you have an equation keep the numbers very simple so you can follow it and see what's happening. Once you're happy pop in the real numbers10
YouTube. That's your best resource. As well as free apps, past papers. Practise a lot, don't give up. You'll do well. I promise you.20
