    I'm afraid that I was Year 11 a while back, I just lurk on here from time to time to see how you guys are doing. When I was a year 11, I only applied to my own school's Sixth Form and (thankfully) got in.

    Nice. As in, what my GCSE subjects were or...? I'm currently on a gap year after doing my A-Levels, will be starting university in October.

    Hmm...advice... It may sound cheesy but try to take every opportunity that you can. I wish I went to loads of events that were organised, (for example prom after Year 11, the ball after Year 13) but sadly couldn't because I needed to travel abroad both times. It can help reduce your stress levels and help pass time both before and after exams when you need it.

    In terms of exams and revision, just try your best! There's nothing more you can do than your best and if you do work hard, there is no reason as to why you can't achieve the grades that you want. It's normal to feel nervous and being a bit nervous is a good thing but try not to let the level of nervousness increase to a level that makes life much harder for you. I'd also suggest taking time out to do things that you love just to help keep your stress levels low. I think that doing that is just as important as revision - you don't need to work 24/7 to achieve good grades, rest is just as important.

    There are so many different revision techniques people have. There isn't one technique that is best for everyone but see if you can experiment around to see which one works best for you.

    I hope this made some sense, haha.

    OK. Urgh. I hate the people in charge round here. They just make this school worse and worse. And they're basically dictators whom everyone (teachers included) hate. They need to leave before I die of anger and frustration.

    Why do they do this to us. More obsessed with the school's reputation then what the students want.

    I want to get terrible grades just to rub it in that their methods are ridiculous and stupid and DO NOT WORK!

    *rant over*

    Ahaha, I needed to rant. They were planning to take away a chunk of our study leave...

    Everything's better now though cuz they reached a compromise and agreed to only cut out one week. So it's all good. (Well, still annoyed but at least they listened to our complaints. )

    In hindsight, I probably would have survived... I just like to be melodramatic and all that shiz.

    Anyways, how are you?

    Has anyone gotten an offer yet from sixth forms or colleges?


    P.S.

    Sorry for the horrible grammar
    I have a conditional offer from a college (it's my backup and the entry requirements are quite low) and everyone in my year has a conditional offer from our school. I want to stay at my school's sixth form but I'm not sure if I'll get the grades What about you?

    I did Religious Studies (Christianity and RC Ethics) and Science (Unit 1) early last year. Resitting RS because I didn’t do too well — not the best idea as I haven’t studied it for a year! 😰
