    Hi there,

    I'm Manpreet and I live in West London.
    Going onto study Stats, Economics and Geo at ALevel and hopefully make my way into doing an Economics degree.
    Reading through the thread, I haven't noticed many aspiring economists so give me a shout if you're one of them!

    I just completed a paid internship at Moodys Investors Service at Canary Wharf and I feel like it's going to give me a real boost when it comes to levels of experience.
    I'd love to share my account of working in a real corporate environment and also whether anyone has already completed an internship!!

    Went to school today to pick my options, in year 10 I said I wanted to do History, Politics and Economics; hasn't changed.

    That's good that you've started networking, my brother works for Merill Lynch BoA; he started his internship in his last year at Uni but started his first ever internship at Coutts in his first year. That's good that you're starting earlier, I want to be a lawyer and have a family friend who will set me up with an internship next summer.

    Yeah it wasn't easy finding an internship but if you're wanting to find one for next summer you should start searching now because I believe a lot of places have their application deadlines in december.

    Anyone else worried that they're just going to completely tank A Levels?

    Started my summer bridging work today (due in tomorrow, nice work ) for Chemistry and just reading even the beginning pages of the textbook has me worried... everything just looks 10000x harder than GCSE :afraid:

    I had my induction day today got my timetable and met my form, there's four other people from my school in my form so that's good . But we have to do ice breakers next week- I hate them so much . First day of actual lessons tomorrow and an assembly from the Principle. I'm nervous about what my teachers will be like .

    HEYYYYYYYY!


    My name is T0ucan and I started sixth form on Tuesday. I live in Northern Ireland where we eat a lot of potatoes and have to cope with a lot of rain. I run at a national level and also enjoy badminton, public speaking, hiking and being a girlguide! I don't mind a cheeky episode of Dance Moms either. I'm taking Maths, English Lit, Politics and RS at AS. I'm also a big philosophy fan and read quite a lot about it outside of school. My favourite magazine is Private Eye.

    Academic/future career stuff:

    I really want to study PPE or Theology and Religion at Oxford! I got 10A*s in my GCSEs so that's a pretty good start. I will be applying for UNIQ this year along with lots of other summer schools. After uni I'd be interested in becoming a politician, diplomat or something to do with foreign affairs.
    Can't believe we're already year 12s!:cheers:Goooood luck everyone!

    I am terribly worried, I feel like I will flunk the whole of a-levels! I'm especially nervous about a-level maths!

    I am so bloody excited; for the first time in 16 years I'll be doing what I love in school. Cannot wait to engage in heated debates in politics, analyse the car crash of a market after Brexit and hopefully continue loving History.

    Posting my AS level advice thread!
    I wrote a thread about how to succeed in your AS levels, so I thought I'd link it for all of you who are going to be starting sixth form! Sorry for the shameless self-promotion btw!

    I don't know why I find AS Physics easier to understand than AS Chemistry. Maths and Biology doesn't look too bad to me.
