    Haha yeah good impressions are good especially first day in sixth form! I'm sure if nobody else does whoever you pick then that will be even better!
    Even though I'm staying at my school, I've always had the same great Physics teacher but this year I have 2 new ones:cry2:

    Please elaborate. Not criticising, just interested.
    There are benefits such as improving the economy, easier travel, awareness of the global infrastructure.

    But there are also disadvantages, one could say that all this tech is damaging people's health. There have been incidents where someone has committed suicide due to social networking etc.

    Will they all be checking this thing you're doing or just the one of them??

    Don't think our school will be getting anymore Physics teachers, just the usual 2 we've had for 5 years. They're both good, one is a little boring, the other a bit more fun, but luckily they both have a laugh so I'm looking forwards to it

    How many miles do you have to travel to get to sixth form?

    I have to travel 10+ Miles.
    I'm about 15 miles away so it takes a good 20 minutes or an hour on the bus

    So many people regret at my sixth form!
    The school brainwashed my year group, lying to us about everything - stupid school!!

    I just googled horsham - never heard of it before!
    Im guessing its so peaceful and quiet in towns like yours??

    Im pretty much sure the college enrolment day is the same as our sixth form one - not much difference.
    Ah that's a shame. Were the teachers any good though?

    Haha, Horsham, is quite far from me but it was between that and Reigate (heard of that?) and there is a direct train to Horsham! I live is a village it's REALLY quiet. I guess not the same at all for you?

    Ah okay, last time we just went to the subjects teacher around the school and said I want to take this course. This time I was give 3 times. 1 - registration 2 - enrolment interview 3 - Study skills assessment?. So I look forward to find out what this all is!

    I'm not definite on anything yet although I would like to do the Natural Sciences course at Cambridge. Yeah, I think we just have a talk with one of the sixth form leaders and confirm what subjects we are doing.
    Well you have a year to decide, I guess once you've started AS it'll be easier What are you take btw?
    Yeah, maybe sounds much easier to do!

    I imagine everyone at my school will do Hawking/Einstein/Newton, the well known ones, I want to do something different. I was thinking Nikola Tesla maybe?
    What about Hubble?

    If you did triple science then AS Physics won't be too bad. If you have a B at GCSE then an A at AS that shows great progress to Universities.
    That's alright then and I'll probably get an A anyway but I won't be happy with a B as I need 9 A*/A s for medicine
