    Funny you say that, I was at George Lucas' house last Saturday night, Emma Watson was there and everything, it was a pretty wild night.

    Ha....no worries.....tsr is our party!

    But seriously.....I think parties are overrated. You can still be a fun person and have a good time with friends even if you don't go to parties....

    If I find Maths too difficult (which hopefully I wont) then I'm going to switch to Biology. Pretty sure we're allowed two weeks too.
    Cool I would imagine so What other A-levels are you doing?

    I'm leaning towards the medicine path...though I am interested in gene therapy/research.

    btw I was wondering do you know of an scientific/medical articles/magazines I could get?
    Cool quite similar then! Hmm sorry I don't really read that stuff (but it must be helpful)....I guess the Internet is a good port of call?

    Hiya! Aw man everyone on here who's started Year 12 doesn't seem enthusiastic...which I expected but hoped for it not to be! Aw hopefully they'll get better; do they do this often? What subjects are you doing?

    Can people share how many students go to their sixth forms? Roughly?
    Err...In my year there's about 200...I think.

    I'm really enjoying Sixth Form at the moment... Ok, I've been there for 3 days and 1 day was an induction but heck, it's good! I only have around 12 hours of lessons a week, which is a bit disturbing! I am also trying to self study for AS German, which is proving difficult, since I don't have a clue where to start. Fridays and Wednesdays are a godsend though! I have 2 study periods and the rest of the day is free... but I'm still heading the library and sixth form centre to get my homework done. Still, I'm loving all of my subjects! Business is ok, nothing special like GCSE, but it ain't bad! I took Philosophy/Ethics on a whim based on my GCSE RS grade (A*) and it's actually amazing/creepy. Then we have German and Spanish which is great too. Good luck to people starting next week.

    Learn the exact same thing that you are doing Spanish! But also learn the idioms to gain high marks - see if you can get a speaking practice lesson done once a week with a German teacher - it really does help

    Haha yeah I think so, it depends how my A Levels you'e doing and what you're doing I guess. I'm doing english language, philosophy & ethics, media & travel and tourism but am doing a few other qualifications, and enrichment activities to go on my uni personal statement alongside

    Cool! My school doesn't do enrichment but I did include General Studies in my time, if I included tutorial it'd add another 2 hours and a half...
    I'm dropping either French or Spanish but that'll still leave me with roughly 24/25 hours (with tutorial)

    That's true! Also depends on your school slightly ^_^
    Cool! I'm doing biology (which I've already completed... I only need to sit the exams), chemistry, physics, maths, Spanish and French - as I mentioned to Lucas I'll be dropping either Spanish/French
    What other qualifications are you doing if I may ask?
    Yeah, I'm also doing a bit of volunteering on weekends
