So I just finished year 11 and have decided I'm gunna go to my schools sixth form and study psychology sociology and English language.
Firstly I would like some advice on what these subjects are like and how much of my social life is gunna be destroyed by them haha!
Secondly any tips about sixth form would also be greatly appreciated.
And without sounding like a proper gimp I went to and all boys school and my sixth form is mixed. I'm really stressing over it because like I have real issues talking to girls never mind being in a class with them!
Also does sixth form like show a lot of your information and stuff. I have a rarely embrassing middle name and I literally don't want no one to find out if it came up in a register ahaha!
Thanks everyone means a lot

People are generally more mature at sixth form and no one will care about your middle name, also you will have far more things to worry about than talking to girls. Your subject choices are fine, you should still have plenty of time to enjoy yourselfPost rating:1

I do psychology and English language so I can tell you a bit about them
Psychology is fairly easy to grasp as it's really just learning more about yourself if that makes sense, so most of the stuff just sticks as it applies to real life. It is, however, a lot of content i feel to remember and I mean like remembering studies and psychologist name's and what they did as there is a lot of them. But you'll get it.
At my college we had to do two 12 marks essays every week, which at first was alright but gradually i got lazy and got behind with deadlines. But they're super useful to do you learn a lot so it helps and so they are not so pointless! Not sure if your sixth form will do this but I still advise you to do so as a form of revision along the way till your exams.
English Language at first was overwhelming a lot of new terms to learn and you look at english a new way I guess. But after a while I got used it and it wasn't actually that hard just a step up from GCSE really. It's not that intense. I don't think there is no longer coursework for English, just exams. So i don't think it will take up to much of your time.
Also don't worry about the mixed school thing I went to an all girls school so I can relate and felt the same way but you realise it's not a big dealLast edited by itsbmc; 03-07-2016 at 00:30.Post rating:2

Thanks man it means a lot the reassurance.
I'm a really panicky guy I just like to keep my distance and stay out of things I don't like attention in me at all.
Our register in school doesn't show up middle names or anything like that so I've been good. I hate the thought of personal information or anything like that being known by somebody else

Hey thanks guys !
I done sociology at GCSE and sort of had to do the same things of remembering case studies and sociologists names. I struggled a bit to be honest but with more revsion I reckon I could probably pull it off. Thanks anyway as I said I'm just a real panicky person and overthink to much ahaha 😩😩
