    I'm ok atm making new friends at Sixthform, enjoying voluntary 😃

    I'm taking Maths, Statistics, Chemistry and Graphics. Loads of statistics (3 units this year) but it should be alright given I make the effort.

    How are you finding the subjects?
    Where do you volunteer? (:

    Cool! My friend is taking Graphics and is really enjoying it. Good luck! I'm taking S1 and S2 so we could buddy up every now and then.

    It's been pretty good so far but I get sooo much homework. :lol: Out of 19 lessons, I got 16 pieces of homework this week. :mmm:

    I got a head start during summer . I'm in the same sixth form as my cousin who did the same subjects as well, so I used her textbook and made notes of it. Done some questions in it as well. Used Google or looked at her assignments if I didn't get something.
    Ah, okay. That makes more sense. Good idea. :yy:

    I'm doing very similar texts:
    1) Jane Eyre and (? - not yet sure)
    2) Meantime and Streetcar
    I've started Jane Eyre with one teacher and Streetcar with the other.

    Which other subjects are you taking?

    I'm not too sure about a room with a view, I remember the author but we haven't started anything for that part. I have the anthology for Mean time and there's 35 poems in there; catorgrising them by theme, and there is hardly anything on the Internet or a revision guide or anything?
    Religion, ethics and philosophy, English lit, geography and psychology. What about you?

    I'm taking English lit, history, maths and further maths.
    There doesn't seem to be many revision guides around for English; I think the expectation is that we do our own research online about a text, and use that to form our own opinions and present an argument, but with texts where there is little available online, it is difficult to do this...

    My school seems to have this really bizarre policy where they ignore the GCSE results we received only a few weeks ago and reassess us on the content of our GCSE exams themselves in a series of assessments over the next two weeks. I understand that they are checking what we have forgotten over the summer, but it just seems a bit excessive! Have you had to do anything like this?

    lmao nope !! No exams yet. But I will do around December. So have you had any lessons or are you just doing exams?
    I thought there would be more stuff online since people did the new spec last year but there is nothing, only the exemplar material on their website which doesn't help much when you don't even know what it's about.

    I've had lessons as well, but I'm spending some of them doing these assessments. We don't have mock exams until January, and, if we don't pass these, we don't get entered for the real thing!
    Sometimes the text itself has notes of some kind in either the front or back - these are quite useful if you have them. Apart from that, if there's hardly anything online, I guess you'll have to get all of your notes from your lessons...

    Introduce Yourself
    Hey, I'm Katie and I live in East Anglia.
    What are your hobbies and interests?
    I don't really have any hobbies, unless you count writing (but I'm not doing that at the moment). My interests vary a lot. My main obsession is LOTR, but I like a lot of the main Fandoms (eg Supernatural and Doctor Who). I love comic books, especially the Flash. I watch a lot of movies and YouTube. I read. My favourite band is Bastille. I own a sword too, which is really cool.
    What subjects are you taking?
    I am taking History, Classical Civilisation, Philosophy & Ethics and English Lang.
    Favourite subjects?
    My favourite subjects are Classics, Philosophy (my teacher looks like a young Stephen Fry) and History.
    Future Occupation?
    I'm not exactly sure, but I want to work in a museum. But before I get a full-time job I want to go to a Russell group university (Hopefully Cambridge or Edinburgh).
