    First day at my sixth form and my head was hurting like 2 hours in because of the information overload.

    i feel you, i just one subject done today so my head isnt traumatised, how many different subjects did you have?

    My first day of year 12, i had no lessons. We started thursdays and i had history first period as my only lesson. But we had form, enrollment and some other stuff, we finished all that 15 mins before 2nd period, ended up going to history but the lesson was 10 mins long and we did nothing. me and someone i meet at form then went to the library for an hour, and did nothing, since we had nothing to do at all, no homework, no work nothing, but our form tutor said we had to use our frees in the library, and when we told him at form we had no lessons he said we had to ''revise in the libary'' ...ended up asking the receptionist if we could leave like retards, and she said i could .... and i can tell you i never ever used my free in the libary all of year 12, the school was lucky if i even turned up thursday for that one lesson of history.

    and thats how i did nothing and pretty much meet next to no one on my first day.

    I didn' t actually have any subjects as today was an introduction. But it was a new sixth form so that combined with the fact they have tonnes of rules burned me out.

    I remember in year 12 all my frees would be in the middle of the day between lessons, so everyday would be annoying af because I never finished early 😂

    At my old sixth form (I'm repeating year 12 in another sixth form) we only had 1 study period a day and 2 for the year 13s. I haven't got my timetable but when i see other people's timetable, it's basically empty. Glad I left that miserable all girls catholic sixth form (shade intended)

    Yeah a-levels are draining , it really kicks bites around the October half term.

    Make sure you get plenty of sleep and ditch the processed foods and lots of water.

    If you use your free periods effectively (you can have a chinwag at other times) you should fine.
