    Great, actually. The class sizes are good and the workload is all right (for now).

    Got my timetable today and I think I have the most frees here. 20 free periods not including 2 compulsory independent study periods a week. I do English lit, History and Sociology, so I'm surprised I have so much frees, it might be because I go to a sixth form college.
    I'm similar. I have 15 hours frees in a week, and 3 of study sessions. Sixth form college too!

    I get so bored though. I've had to be in school for the last two hours for study sessions, but I had no work to do! I like being with my friends but I'd rather be at home!

    So, a bit of an update. I had to move college. Which is a little intense but okay.

    Essentially the college I was going to was both far away and also had mediocre results and weren't all that willing for people to aim above getting a C grade. It was sort of a we'll get you a pass kind of college and while I was willing to work for my grades they were largely unsupportive of it. Some of the teachers were great but overall it's already been a struggle just a few days in.

    So I'm moving to a new college. Which is exciting but also really stressful. This ones so much closer and also has great results and programs. As well as actually having extra curricular activities. So yeah...

    Yeah, the last college I was at really wasn't that great at doing that sort of stuff. The most extracurricular it got was a few sports teams that were only availble to those who were doing pe subjects.

    Really excited to move to this college, just looking at the options. Still a little stressful and nervous over whether I've missed much

    Okay I need some help. My biology teacher does not think I'll be able to cope with the course because I got a C in additional science. The requirement is at least a B at Core Science, and a B at additional, but I got A at core and C at additional. I have had mental health problems the last year, and I had a 'friend' who wouldn't let me get any work done in biology this year so I know, I can do better. But I don't know what to do. Help? Anyone?!

    Know this is a year 12 thread, but can anyone help me with this maths question plz? A set of four numbers has a mode of 6, a median of 7 and a range of 8. What are the four numbers? Thanks

    I assume that since the mode is 6, there must be two sixes out of the four numbers.

    Please help thanks

    Were your school aware of your mental health issues?

    You'll need to speak to your teacher to let him know why you didn't do as well as you hoped. If you have any evidence (e.g. GP letter, referrals etc.) it'll help your cause, but sadly it'll be at his or her discretion.

    It's complicated. A couple of teachers know, but I have no official diagnosis so it's hard. It's that situation of I have every symptom going, but haven't been for an official diagnosis for personal reasons.
