    Does anyone else think it's weird that a GCSE shake-up gets so much media attention, but the switch to Nat 4/Nat 5, the CfE, and the revised Highers/Advanced Highers have nothing said about it?

    Not really, the Scottish news picked up on the CFE and it's not really got anything to do with England so won't get more than a 2 minute segment on the main news.

    But even in terms of our news - not much was said. Down in England they're practically demanding for Gove's head over this.

    Yup me neither, I've been watching the leavers threads since I joined this forum ages ago, and now I can take part in it. Weird.

    Excited to make this last year though the best yet!

    I am doing Advanced Higher History this year and its a pain in the but, a lot harder than i thought it would be but i really enjoyed Higher History. Were doing The american civil war as our topic and the teacher was going through what to write for our dissertation. Hopefully i am going to manage it. To be honest i am a bit worried that i have failed Higher English and will have to resit it again this year which would mean i would be sitting Higher English, int2 Maths, Higher Biology, Higher Art and AH History which might kill me :L.

    The only thing I got better at in 6th year was procrastination.

    I feel we need some extra nostalgia to counteract your foray into the real world.

    Tubs, me and ukdragon all on one page?? All we need is Rosie now!

    Thought since the 5th years have a dedicated thread that us leavers deserved one too!

    By now, most people are back right? So how is sixth year? Heh.

    I took Adv Art, Adv Mods (which I took up after dropping Higher Product Design) and Higher Spanish! What do you all take, and are you having fun in your classes?

    The annoying this is all our 6th year privileges have been taken away (leaving class 5 mins early before break/lunch/end of day, skipping the queue, playing cards, coming in to school late if you have frees in the morning etc.) and it's for no apparent reason! Management have something against us
