    We're learning the 3rd module in chemistry when we haven't even finished the first. Same goes with Physics and Biology, the order is just ridiculous.
    We're doing this too, but I like it. I have two teachers for every subject, so I like that we're doing a different thing with each teacher - it's easier to keep track of. For example, with one biology teacher we're doing cells and microscopy, and with another we're doing biodiversity and evolution.

    I've only just got on top of my homework which takes ages and now I have to prepare for a Math test on Tuesday and with the way my teacher is speaking I better get the majority right, and if I get less than 40% she'll probably want to kick me off the course. Also had 2 Physics tests, the first I have to redo and the second was ok.

    AAARRGGGHHHH Sixth form is annoying me, too much to do in so little time.

    You may have to change all your other classes then.

    I feel like I must not be trying hard enough since I'm finding sixth form a calm and relaxed atmosphere.. :innocent:

    I just love learning though even though I don't always show it & my grades don't reflect it. :fisheye:

    Yeah that's the problem. My whole timetable might change.

    and i've noticed too how long it takes to do the work properly and not just a rushed last min piece of work like at gcse

    I get the same thing I feel really great about sixth form, yet many on here seem to be having at least a couple of problems. My school has always been relatively nice though (in terms of people), and the few idiots that were there aren't any more, or have grown up, so I don't really have any social problems.

    My F. Maths class though :facepalm2::rofl: I love them, but at least one of them might not make it to A2.

    Last year, 15 people were in the Higher Level Maths class. At the end of the year there were 6. :rofl:

    There are only 6 people in my F. Maths class. One of them is an exchange student, who's only staying for the first year, so that leaves 5 potential A2 students. I feel like all of them could continue to A2, but I also feel like some of them definitely might not. Early days though, will hopefully improve :lol:

    So after my first HL Maths test I got 15/32. It wasn't the worst in the class though :lol: It's not the content I don't understand, but it's a right ***** for time and if you make one slight mistake early on in a question you get shot in the knee for it ._. Honestly, I got like no error carried forward marks

    Everyone else seems to be really calm and relaxed and spend their free periods talking, reading random books etc but I've been doing loads of background research/reading related articles etc, although it all seems to be for just the one subject (History), the rest I've really found rather relaxed :/

    Aye! I just really love the freedom you get in sixth form. I feel like we're one big community that is separate from the main school, it's not like upper sixth/lower sixth. We all kinda get along and talk to everyone! :cute: I'm enjoying History so far, what topics are you studying?

    My school put the best teacher in the school in charge of sixth form this year luckily :dance: I like everyone that has come to my sixth form too. Even people I didn't talk to so much in year 11, I seem to talk to all the time now.

    Yeah, people have grown up, and the smaller classes make socialising more common My Chemistry teacher joked that Physics students (while we were in a Physics class :mmm:) were "anti-social", but that's (obviously, I would hope) not actually true :lol:

    My school just has a full-time head of Sixth Form, so he knows what he's doing, and we are technically in our own building, even if we have classes in the regular buildings.
