    Hahaha that would definitely be more appropriate My teacher said we can bring cake because everyone was complaining about coming in early on a Monday (and apparently all the FM classes bring food to their early lessons at my school)
    That is so strange because my college is strict and firm on food and drink.My Physics teacher was saying how dangerous it would be to eat food in the room because it could get contaminated by radiation(I think he meant Alpha), which wasn't dangerous unless it was consumed and the rule sticks for all the subjects.

    In my Geography class, they let us make our own rules for the class but my teacher decided that he had two more to add on himself and the first one was "No Food and Drink" and the second was "No Hats" for some reasons something due to the effect of hats on people's hair or something.

    You are allowed Water though as long as it is under the table but I wouldn't advise it because if you drink in College you will need the toilet all the time.

    Today I found out I will be a 'buddy' for one of the 2nd/3rd years who were on report last year, to help with Maths and general homework, anyone else done this?

    I will take him under my wing and he will be my protégé.
    I don't think they do things like reports at my college-I think if you misbehave or don't turn up you get kicked out.A lot of lecturers have made it clear that we have chosen to be here and if we don't have to be here we don't have to be here.

    It sounds strange for you to be helping a 2nd/3rd year student- surely any buddy schemes would be done the opposite way around because you don't even know your college yet and is this student resitting GCSE Maths or something?

    We're not allowed to eat during normal lessons but the Maths Department are pretty relaxed and I think they feel bad for making us come in early so they bend the rules We're never allowed to eat or drink in Science rooms either. I think it's because there could be spilt chemicals on the tables, which weren't cleared up properly or something :confused:

    Our school is a bit stricter.

    Ah, no - I live in Northern Ireland, we generally stay in our school (if it's a grammar school) until sixth year, so I know my school fairly well by now . The 2nd/3rd years here are the equivalent of Years 8 + 9 in England...

    hmmm its not a teaching lesson really, its guidance :lol: basically my teacher (who btw is the nicest person in the world and is rather fit ) said it about guiding you to your future about career choices, university choices, UCAS, CV help, Finances and stuff like that and she is the person we see if we have any troubles

    She's also the psychology teacher and i was gonna do psychology ..i may have missed out there :facepalm: :lol:

    there's also an edit in the post you quoted

    Aw I hate it when you wake up and then that sudden elation disappears...I have three close friends with me...I kinda 'befriended' a couple of others in my tutor group who are doing similar A-levels...but they're all so clever but easy going! It's kinda scary. I MISS MY SCHOOOL.

    (Looks at clock and frowns) Same here; 12:30. It's gonna be weird catching a train from school...it's less expensive than the bus though. I miss my 10 minute walk to school! Though at least today I'll get my timetable and back to routine it is...I've missed that.

    hello, i took some days off TSR as been busy. I had my enrolement today though! We had to fill in a form with personal details, photocopy our results, interview with new form teachers and a questionnaire to find out about any learning difficulties. Induction day is monday, tuesday is first proper day

    Have you started your year? If so, how is it going?
    Yep, im at the college now in the library.
    Today is my third day - so far, really awesome! I think im fitting in really well tbh.
    I feel really happy here, much better than my sixth form. Made lots of friends and all my teachers are really nice.
    This is an east london college, so im not surprised by the fact that the majority here are asians.

    My favourite lesson so far has to be further maths - amazing teacher, small class and i really love maths lol.
    Physics is a bit crowded and the teacher is not my ideal one, but i find the subject to be engaging.
    French is bigger than i thought it would be, i was expecting there to be 3 or 4 boys. But it turns out to be 10 or so boys.
    Maths is normal - good teacher and standard class size.

    All the best for your new start!

    Yeah I wouldn't be surprised either. I'm glad you've made friends though, and settling in well. I've not had the chance yet, Monday have half day with our tutor group though.

    That's great about all your classes, how many in your physics class?

    Thanks hopefully be fine!

    Are you feeling everything come back to you from before summer?
