    Hey. So I have officially finished all of my GCSE exams! I am happy but sad, because I did like having exams lol!
    I will be starting Sixth Form in September and I just wanted to know what do people expect from College/Sixth Form etc?
    What are people hoping for? What do people want to accomplish? What subjects are people scared about? What subjects are people excited about?
    I am really interested, because I know that some of my friends do not want to start AS levels but some of my friends are really excited!

    The summer before I started my AS levels i was anticipating an easy year if i'm honest... figured that as i only had 4 subjects rather than 11 i'd be fine, but maannn it's a lot of work.
    I love history and music so i enjoyed them and i didn't mind doing lots of work for them, but maths was a very painful experience. Just to warn you

    He made a thread a few weeks ago where he was unsure as to whether he should take A level Physics despite liking both Physics and Maths because he heard from friends that it is a really difficult A level, and so I don't think he is taking A levels for granted.

    Oh My Goodness Me! Wow!!! Haha, Its amazing how you remembered and I didn't! I certainly am not! I am so excited and I hope to begin studying for AS levels in July. I will try to teach myself some stuff. I am really excited about Geography, Chemistry and Maths! You know what they say - ''an early bird, catches the worm''!

    My last exam was today, and I am pretty happy with how all of my exams went. If im honest, I am most worried about English Lit, History, French and Stats but everything else was a breeze
    Im doing Biology, chemistry, history and either business or psychology, and Im expecting a levels to be really hard from what my brothers and sister said
