    Most of my frees are last period, which is a gift/curse. What if you've done all you're homework over the weekend? :mmm:

    Ikr!! I didn't think I had been given that much but this weekend I wrote out everything and wow... Do you get homework in every lesson too?

    I'm feeling a little jealous. Discounts!! When do you start?
    Then I eat/hang out/sleep in the common room

    Yep I got two English essays, one for French and Economics then a worksheet for history.


    :lol: It's great, especially considering Topshop is quite expensive
    I start in two weeks because I told them I want to settle into a routine and that I'm not overwhelmed with with work and school and other stuff:yep:

    It hurt me just seeing girls around me screaming "Ooooh I got A*s!"
    well.............you know what you have to do, right?

    get those A*'s and rein your superiority on them

    Might as well do my work seen as I have 11 frees per week. I like my frees just except my triple free. And no I'm at a private boarding school so you have 'prep time' which is time to do your homework so from 6:30-8:30 I'm working

    oh..........
    I can relate..........

    .....all those C's and B's on that one piece of paper......they hurt......

    I feel your pain, my friend. I feel it.
    They really do hurt don't they! 1 D on mine too. Let's just say I was in the biggest crying state out of anyone at my school. But my parents 'you got what you need, so proud of you' that annoys me so much! I'm not proud of me, I don't need their patronising pride

    I started back Wednesday and got set homework I've being set homework all this week at least 4 pieces a day. It's alevels some take to them quickly some don't it takes time. Theres a lot of negativity on this thread because people are giving lessons/schools time, speak to your teachers having a good relationship with them is crucial tell them there going a lil too fast. Go home go over your notes or in your frees speak to classmates and go over the work
    I'll definitely mention if I don't understand something from now on, thanks. Luckily, I'm not behind as I managed to learn what I didn't know as well as doing all my homework for tomorrow. Do you recommend doing rough notes in class and making them neater later, which I'm doing at the moment, or making notes in lessons and just revising off that? The method I use is kind of time consuming, but my handwrighting is slow and sloppy in lessons, so I won't get everything down neatly if I just make a rough copy of notes and stick to that.

    It's whatever works for you xx personally I love colour so all my notes I make in class are neat and colourful and then when I need to revise I condense my notes down nearer the time. But I'm in a class of average 9 or 10 so I have the time to make neat notes xx

    All my classes have at least 15 people so I don't really have the time. I'm thinking on working on my writing speed as well as my handwrighting. It would make everything much easier if I did so, but I've been writing like this for years and I'm not sure if I want to change now. For maths, I doubt that I'm going to need to re-do notes so at least there's a silver lining in there somewhere.

    What it says I'm In small class sizes and I have more teaching time per subject as my school day doesn't finish till 5;15 so the pace of the class goes much slower and the class work is tailored to all our needs so teachers know who's a slow writer etc so cater for us, just perks of being in an independent school

    Doing Biology, Chemistry, History and Psychology but lots of people in my year are doing three so I'm thinking of dropping psychology as I don't want to be overloaded with work. Can I have someone's opinion like will I be at a disadvantage of taking only these 3 a levels?? I would rather focus on 3 rather than 4 as I was going to drop one at the end of AS anyway... Also would it look better to do Biology rather than psychology?

    Had my first day and thoroughly enjoyed it. Had drama and we got to know each other, teacher was great! Art we started an A1 sized portrait of ourselves in charcoal and that was fun. Overall good day apart from being told to come in for mandatory study skills then being told it's cancelled

    Had a great day relative to all of my other days now. I think I enjoy my new school now . Hopefully it's like this for the rest of the 2 years.
