    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
    Wow, that's really good. I have essay based subjects as I'm better at them, I was never good at maths or science subjects unfortunately. I'm doing the NCFE Resort Rep qualifiation which is 2 hours a week with a guarenteed interview with Thomas Cook when passed, and it goes nicely with my Travel & Tourism. I'm hoping to do a tourism based degree at uni. I'm also doing anti-bullying mentoring for younger students & conversational/holiday spanish speaking

    So bloody glad I pre-ordered the vinyl.
    Hurrah for vinyls!

    Yeah that's what the French teacher said (had her as a tutor for the day, and she spoke to me about German because the actual German teacher wasn't in...). When I had a look at the list though, there was only one other boy... Not that it's a problem, but I think I'll just find it a little bit harder to get to know people, because when I'm surrounded by girls I feel the need to make a good first impression, whereas around boys I can just relax.

    Wow, they are nice class sizes. I hope mine are like that.
    We had an induction week for Sixth Form (a whole week, gr), and our German teacher was away so I had an extra free period every day Ah bless you! Though surely guys would judge you similarly based on first impressions? We have two guys and five girls in our German. Do you start tomorrow?

    Thanks :3
    Mhmm, I'm exactly the opposite - not very good with essay subjects but I think that's to do with moving around countries and schools a lot when I was little... I'm still playing catch up 10 years later D:
    That's sounds awesome! Do you have any ideas of where you'd like to work? I assume you can work in a lot of different countries with a tourism degree which is great if you'd like a change of scenery.
    Aww that sounds really sweet!
    How long have you been doing Spanish for?

    Am I the only one with 27.5?
    27.5?! We only have 25 hours of school (exclusive of form, PEP, lunch and break), and then I have at least five hours of private study/frees a week. Though it does annoy as I feel that time would be much more productive if spent being taught in lessons that struggling to find any relevant books in my school library

    My school day is almost 7 hours and we have 5x50 minute lessons of each subject during the week - but I've counted biology which I'm doing at home as part of my school study time. Overall we have 6 lesson slots a day.
    Also everyone does a extra compulsory 3x50 minutes (2 of sport and one of general studies). ^.^ I only have two private study/free sessions a week but I use my lunch time for extra study time (it's over an hour long so why not).
    Aw, have you spoken to the librarian or the school council about possibly ordering a few more study books?

    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.
    It's quite encouraging to see that everyone has enjoyed their start to sixth from. I don't start until tomorrow and I am really looking forward to it! I'm taking Maths and Further maths because my best GCSE results were in Maths. I took Physics and IT because I really enjoyed the lessons last year. I'm expecting to have a lot of lesson hours due to Physics and Further Maths being 2 of the harest A-levels my sixth form offers.

    Can people share how many students go to their sixth forms? Roughly?
    I think about 150/200 in each year? We had 272 in our year in year eleven.
