    Well, I'm Robin (because that's just so unclear from my username), I've only been 16 for about a week and half now, and I live in Greater Manchester.
    - What are your hobbies and interests?
    As for hobbies, I'd say drawing and Explorer Scouts, although I'm always trying new things. I also like Anime/Manga, video games, and reading good classic literature (which seems a bit random, I know)
    - What subjects are you planning to take?
    I'll be taking a level 3 BTEC in Graphic Design, alongside 2 A-Levels in English Language and Core Maths.
    - Your favourite subject(s)?
    My favourite subjects are English Lit/Lang, Maths, Graphic Products, Business Studies and I.T.
    - Your ideal future occupation?
    I would absolutely love to go into freelance Graphic Design, but I am trying to keep my options open as well.

    That's why I'm almost halfway through AS Biology content already. It's going to feel like I'm doing three AS subjects instead of four.

    I'm definitely cutting down my working hours to 8 at least for year 12. Will likely move to 4 hours in year 13. Otherwise I'd have to operate my life like a robot.

    I'm Elanor, I'm returning to my secondary school for sixth form

    I don't really have many hobbies. I occasionally play the ukulele.

    I'm going to be taking maths + further maths, spanish and computer science

    I loved all of them at GCSE and I hope I'll like them all just as much at A Level.

    Ideal occupation is probably something to do with computer science.

    True, but I didnt do very well, although I did get into my sixth form easily. The only worry is whether I will be able to get into a rg uni to do economics, or whether I cant.
