    Hello, I'm starting sixth form in approximately 3 weeks time, a little worried. What can I expect on enrollment day and my first day? What clothes should I be wearing (We don't have uniform)? Should I change ICT to Economics and can someone give me an intro into accounting, business studies and economics...Thnx

    Lol Sixth Form isnt a big deal, you should have an induction day and what you wore in it, should be your dress code too, like for me, we had to wear suits for men and smart clothing for women, in your case, you might just need to wear casual clothes but obviously not like as if you're going to a beach but something descent.

    The first few days are mainly inductions and probably team building so you dont have to worry, have fun! We had a barbeque on ours lol.

    your time there wouldnt last long and it's gonna get stressful alot quicker towards your uni applications so try to have fun now and don't forget to prioritise

    Is it an enjoyable subject? How hard is it? And how hard/easy will it be for me to get 300 points?

    It's really interesting, I feel it's one subject that can really relate to current affairs and the world.

    It's slightly difficult but I enjoyed it so that didn't bother me

    It's difficult for me to judge your ability of getting 300 points, but if you put the work and effort it in, it shouldn't be difficult

    Ah! Our school doesn't allow jeans! It's casual/smart no denim! So it depends on yours!

    In terms of your choices, make sure they are suitable to whatever you want to do for a degree in University (If you want to go) There is nothing worse than getting halfway through your first year and not having a required A-level!

    Tbh the first few weeks were so tiring! But you'll get the hang of it in no time! Good luck!

    I hope that's not sarcasm! Hehe! Um! Actually our sixth form is starting economics for the upcoming year, it wasn't available in ours! But actually it is popular with both! Maths was also popular, both are mainly boys, but yeah quite a few girls!

    Don't worry about sixth form - you will have so much more fun. More freedom and the teachers are a lot less strict and more friendly with you.

    As for what you wear - wear whatever you want to! As long as it's not a really short skirt and any other inappropriate clothing lol.
    I just wear skinny jeans, converse, and a t-shirt
