    Here's the deal...
    I don't really like my school, I only have a couple of close friends there and some serious bad memories, so understandably I don't really want to go to the sixth form.

    But the sixth form I want to go to has a school attached to it, and I'm scared I'll be a loner, I'm so socially awkward. Should I stay put and hate it or move and be at risk of loner some?

    I'm in the same situation as you, i dislike my school and only have a couple friends.

    I decided to go to a college because i can get away from the people, its a new environment, everyone will be new and also theres no younger people there... :P

    Ahh, bless you, I get that sometimes and I only know 3 languages properly . I regret doing geography too I thought that it would be more natural geography which is a lot more interesting for me but it turned out not to be . I had business studies as one of my options but it got overfilled so I took ICT instead which I'm happy about because a lot of people moan about the amount of work they have to do for business studies . At sixth form I'm planning on taking Economics, Maths, Further Maths and Spanish or Business Studies. What about you?
    I feel pleased when I was considering taking a subject but decided not to and it turns out loads of people moan about how hard it is etc :") The relief! I'm planning on taking Biology, Chemistry, Maths, Further Maths and German. To be honest, it took me ages to decide what to take. I wanted to do everything and I was so close to do doing economics/ psychology/ spanish but I think I'm happy with my choices I'm guessing you would like to take economics/ maths to the next level and hope to do that in Uni?

    I'm so tired too! All I can say is revise (which isn't very helpful, sorry). I've got my first exams in a month and I'm not stressing yet but I'm waiting for it to start kicking in soon

    No, I personally think you should move schools if you want to. You don't want to endure 2 more years with more horrible memories To be honest, I'll also have to make some new friends too because everyone is leaving for sixth form in my year. Not because it's a bad sixth form but because they can't do their desired subject choices. But I guess I'm a very loud person so it'll be hard not to ignore me And I'm sure you'll find some new friends. Just smile at people because that makes it a whole lot better. Good luck!

    I am in year 12 and joined a new school for sixth form. When I joined I felt like I wouldn't fit in etc and actually hated it because I didn't know my way around and knew noone (if you do go to the new school, don't give up and withdraw yourself from everyone because everyone I know felt like this in my school when they joined) however after some time I got to know people, old and new. And now I love the school as I have met so many new people and more friends than I did in my old school.

    If you hate your current school it's worth taking the risk to go to a new school you may love, even if you like it some more than your old one it's worth it

    Thanks, everybody. This has been on the cards for a while now, I'm prepared to take the plunge, especially as it specialises in modern foreign languages, which is what I want to do, but I'm just so scared. XD

    Anyone else going to a College which none of their friends are going too? Scares me even more than the exams the thought of not being with them any more.

    If College is anything like High School then it ain't going to go too well for me as through my life in High School I managed to become quite the nerd, as did most of my friends so we were a pretty tight group. And if there is one thing I've learnt is that people hate nerds. (Well the people from my town) I can't begin to tell you how many times I have been bullied, because of what I liked, my looks and so on and so on.
