    Do you think you'll soon be able to get to know the people in your groups? Or are they seriously really bad?
    Oh, I do know everyone, most people in my secondary school moved upto its Sixth Form, that's how I know that I don't 'fit in' within certain groups.

    I'll cope, I guess. I'm gonna kind of have to.

    Well done haha! I envy your willpower
    Haha I surprised myself! I'm about to fall asleep now though - 5.30 is not a humane time to wake up at

    The only exercise I can do involves me walking down the stairs in the morning :laugh:. Did you go for a run today?
    Hahah me too normally! Nahh - I can barely run down the hall! I've been doing this exercise DVD program over summer called Insanity (on the second month now woo) and it's like an hour of high intensity interval training each day consisting of various exercises like jumps, pushups, squats and variations of them...it's really hard

    I really could have done with a hair cut. Then again, I need a hair cut in the recent picture too.

    Don't go back until Monday. -.-

    How did it go?
    Actually great (new sixth form). Some of the people I met during the interview stage remembered me and we got through the whole day by sticking with each other. The other students were fairly welcoming too alongside the teachers. Tommorrow's the first day we have lessons so hopefully they'll go well too (if I can find where they are )
    You have a nice long wait ahead of you :laugh:
    Btw does anyone else have a two week timetable?

    EDIT: You were such a cute child :sigh:

    How many free periods does everyone have? I only have 3 half hour frees and have been feeling quite sorry for myself as everyone who's not doing further maths at my school has 7

    Ah that's good, glad you had a great day. It must be reassuring to know that everyone is welcoming.

    It might seem like a nice long week, but trust me, I would do anything to start tomorrow.

    I know that I have a one week timetable. Four lessons a day, each lesson is 90 minutes long. So that means my frees will be 90 minutes long, and if they're either side of lunch, that's a nice 140 minute break.

    My day is basically;

    Lesson One, 15 min break, Lesson Two, 50 min lunch, Lesson Three, 15 min break, Lesson 4.

    I was a weird child.. Definitely not cute... :rolleyes:

    Oddest timetable I have ever seen, by far. How the hell do you manage 90 minutes/lesson?

    My lessons are 45 minutes long, and I'm also on a 2 week schedule.

    We have 5 lessons a day (somtimes the same two lessons), each being an hour long alongside 4 free periods a week for which we have to stay in school and study under supervision :sigh:
    140 minute break- Lucky, if you get that

    You were a cute child (nice hair too)

    We have the same set up for the timetable, apart from we don't have supervision for the frees, it's just 'recommended' we study!

    I can't wait for next year when all the lessons of the 4th subject turn to free periods

    I really don't have a clue how I'll manage it, but as with everything, I'm sure I'll soon get used to it.

    *look above for example AS timetable*

    We might have a double lesson, but because of how the timetable is set out, it's unlikely.

    Damnnn, study under supervision, that must be so painful.

    I know right!? 2 hours 20 minutes, I am so up for that! My college is in a market town rather than in a city centre, and just on the outskirts of town there's a Sainsbury's and a Bowling Alley... I think I know where I'll be spending most of my frees. :rolleyes:

    Oi, leave my hair alone.

    All lessons for me are either 3 hours in the morning or 2 hours in the afternoon. So Monday afternoon I have 2 hours of Maths, then Tuesday morning I have 3 hours of Further Maths etc.

    My school seems to have the shortest periods, we have 8 or 9 35 minute lessons, depending on which day it is. Although normally we have double periods so we actually get an hour and 10 minutes of each subject at a time.

    ...wait, what?

    That's the weirdest timetable I've heard of so far.

    As much as I love Maths, I don't think I'd be able to cope with that.

    I have a maximum of 2 subjects a day which makes it easier for carrying folder, books, work and everything.
