    Ohh sorry! Well it's more about motivation for revision and if you feel like you're learning from the lessons! Somewhere where you're more comfortable is better but I'm sure things will change if you stayed there anyway as you get to know people! The reputation of a school doesn't really mean much imo as it depends what teacher you have and stuff! Is there a more favoured option? 😬

    I am pretty motivated and willing to learn in lessons. I know alot of people at my new school so i'm not worried about that but i don't want to leave it too late and realise i can't go back anymore. Right now my favoured option is going back to my old school. I have been speaking to friends who still go there and they say its really good and they understand things they've been taught. The teachers at my new school are alot more hard-on not as free so they stick to their teaching and their way only rather to changing it based on their students. This is very different to my old school so i don't know if i'll get used to it for the only 2 years i have to get good A level Grades. Although people say its like that at uni, its a different case because you're there for at least 3/4 and you'll obviously find one that suits you before applying whereas in my situation i went there because my sister got in mainly and its good reputation but like you said it doesn't mean much

    To me it sounds like your better choice is the old school! Have a chat with your parents about it too, but you have to understand your lessons really😕
