    Anyone else panicking, not just for results but for A Levels in general?

    English Literature and Language - Edexcel
    French - WJEC
    Religious Studies - AQA
    EPQ - AQA
    Government and Politics - Edexcel (still undecided on that or media studies)

    I do/will do again Politics with Edexcel. I think it's really interesting and if you're good at essay (2 per exams + 4 smaller questions) you'll be fine.
    I don't know what you know about it already but you learn 4 different topics eg unit 1 Pressure Groups, Politics parties, Democracy, Electoral systems. And in the exam you are given a question on each topic BUT you only have to answer 2 questions.

    I prefer my view. Houses, cars, streetlights, a football stadium in the background. It shows how humans have developed. Not just some grass.
    Hahaha, but don't you like the beauty of a scenic view, not some boring ugly houses? You could go for walks in the fields. Even train liek i have done in the past! And right now I can hear horses trotting along the road.

    Thank you! I certainly hope so Ah right Why didn't you? Hmm I'll probably open my envelope with my friends; but with my back faced towards them...or just right in front I guess. Nerves; it all depends on the day!
    I don't actually know I think I was more upset about my Elang results like most people! now I really wish I did!

    Ah right, that's what I did too, tbh everyone was bothered about their own results so didn't really matter. Or like this year I knew I'd fail and already had a place to restart somewhere else so I pretty much shouted our my results to make everyone else feel better (DDDU).

    Hahah, so you're a bit of a thrill-seeker? I am as well! The good thing about pleasure island is that the queues are never as long as at some of those bigger places so the waiting times are less

    Woo, someone else resitting!

    Yeah that's what I'm doing too from my ex-school sixthform to a sixthform college.

    Yeah, ikr that's why I'm talking to people on here, they seem alright I'm glad I'm not at restarting at my school becuase then everyone knows you're a year older. Do you know anyone going with you? There are about 6 people from my school going but only 2 of us did AS the rest did with lvl 2 courses or applied AS.

    Easier to get to places, more places to go, more people to meet, more choice in things like schools and doctors/dentist surgeries, often cheaper transport, there's like 4 supermarkets in 30 mins walking distance of me:lol:

    College is a whole new world of making friends and doing exams - its so much like going to uni.
    I love the freedom and relaxing atmosphere.
    I would never have stayed at my sixth form either - its absolutely just terrible and i have been there for 6 years now.

    I know 2 people allready who will be going to my college - i met them on the college thread and they seem really nice.
    Several other people from my sixth form are resitting the year and a couple of them are also coming to the college.

    When is your enrolment day?? Mine is on thursday!

    I have Tesco within 10m bike ride all my friends live in the town so I'm a bit stuck here and have to go to meet them there. :/ I do agree what you say very convenient but what about noise and pollution. Also higher crime rates Can you blast you music loudly and no one mind?
