    I feel like I'm so late to the party...
    Hi! I'm in sixth form (obviously), and I'm studying French, Psychology and English Literature, and I'm also doing the EPQ (which I'm relating to Psychology as I want to study that at Cambridge!) If anyone else is taking French, please be my friend because I am struggling so much right now!
    Obviously my favourite subject is Psychology, but my hobbies include the piano, singing, writing, baking, hating my job at McDonalds, and gaming.

    same :five: it's not really conceptually hard, especially since we're going over gcse grammar, but the workload is so high (and daunting!)
    we have grammar or vocab tests or an essay every week in a rotation, and the essays are the absolute worst. i always find myself doing them the day before but they haven't been too bad thankfully
    around six people in my class dropped french in the first few weeks and although i like it, sometimes i wish i'd swapped it for something a bit lighter (economics i'm looking at you )

    I generally have grammar and vocab tests a couple of times a week as I have two teachers, but I only have to do essays every 2-3 weeks luckily. I agree though, I still leave them to the last minute! Old habits die hard, I guess.
    There's literally only seven people in my class - 2 left in the first week! But even though French is really hard, I'm glad I didn't swap to Physics because it looks even harder (my friend does it and shows me the work she has to do).
    I mean, I do like French but if my teacher asks me a question in French and I don't understand her, instead of asking in English she just keeps repeating it in French. It's stuff like that, how these teachers assume that I learnt so much at my old school, that stresses me out the most!

    I should be able to help with this as i also do chemistry , biology and maths!!
    Well firstly, i have a lever arch file for each of my subjects and i have the specification for each of my subjects printed off and glued to file dividers and put into my files.
    During each lesson (mainly chemistry&biology) i will make rough notes in my paper pad and highlight the title for each part of the spec when we begin to learn it (to track what i'm learning)
    Then throughout the lesson i'll tick off the parts of the spec we have covered and always ask for help straight away if i don't understand something.
    When i get home i sort out my files ( i do this everyday). I will copy up my rough notes in neat and make sure i cover each point from the spec and everything i've learned in lesson. Doing this helps me to retain the information i've learned. I will then make sure to complete every single piece of homework i've been given and make sure to ask my teachers about anything i don't understand.
    At the end of each week i make flashcards for my sciences and make them on everything ive learned in that week. I use flashcards to revise so if i stick to this routine by exam time i will have flashcards on everything i've learned.
    If i have a test coming up i'll get people to test me on my flashcards and at the end of each half term i plan to review all my flashcards and make sure i know them off by heart before i go back to school for the next half term (to decrease revision stress)
    The website i use for my flashcards is called
    Cram , if you're interested.
    You're literally like my twin! I do all of this but I write the flashcards out by hand instead
