    Hi
    Just what the title says really being reading some real horror stories and freaked myself out.
    I'm taking
    History
    English Lit
    R.S
    Yes you are freaking yourself out. Pointless.
    Nothing to worry about if you work hard and consistently

    You get to study 3 subjects you like and the teachers are more interested..
    Also a purpose in studying with a reward of the subject being used to get you into Uni if you wnat to go.

    Even less reason to be worried. You will do fine.
    If you wnat to worry over nothing then go ahead, but almost everyone else wull be in a poorer academic position than you.

    I honestly found sixth form and A levels a lot more enjoyable than GCSEs. I was doing 4 subjects I was good at and actually liked, and I didn't find the workload that hard (going from 11 to 4 subjects).I think it does depend on your subject choice, but generally speaking I think the hype is overrated.
