Freaking out here, what should I do?

A photo of harmony harmony
Hey guys. Currently I have 4 core classes, including Gr.12 Bio and math, plus Gr.11 S.S and Physic.
The work load..I think it's just absolutly too much.
I feel like I can't handle it anymore. What should I do?
Any advice?
I mean the stuff isn't that hard, it's just Bio it too time consuming and math can get confusing, by phsics teacher talks too fast...
I feel like screaming!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What do you guys do when you just feel there's just no time to get done everything.
I'm having a huge panic attack. I wonder how could I ever survive in University..
I'm losing hope in life. *tears*

Well, if I were you, I would just drop one of my courses if I didn't desperately need it. If it's stressing you out that much then I don't think it's worth it. Of course, if you feel like you can manage it in the long run and all this stress is just temporary, then I would try to get extra help in physics or math and stick through it. But for me, I know that math and physics are not my strongest subjects, so I would have to invest more time in them. If I feel like there is no time to do everything, then I do as much as I can. But it shouldn't feel like that all the time, or you need to drop one of your courses asap.

Thanks for the advice. I thought about droping one, but then I have to take another course on some sort of subject, but it can be options though. I guess the reason I didn't want to drop out my core is to not want to waste time on those. I just hope I can get used to the work load soon. Or else I guess I won't make it through University.

I also have a heavy work load being in the IB program, and I find it soo overwhelming sometimes. But I find that going in for extra help or studying with friends when I dont understand something really helps. As for the workload, its tough to not fall behind, but I find if I make a list of everything I have to get done and prioritize everything, it makes it easier to get most of it done.
Dont worry, youll survive :)
