    Is any other 6th form college as insane as mine? We've just finished our AS's last week and we've started the A2 courses this week, doesn't that seem a bit strange?
    I mean I know there's a lot to fit in if we start back in September but surely that's what most people do? Plus no one is really in the right frame of mind to work to the best of their ability after just finishing exams, well that's what I think anyway.
    Does anywhere else actually do this!?

    Ah right, I thought it was strange cause nowhere else round here seems to do it, then again saying that there is only one other college and the rest are schooly ones so it's like different for them I suppose!

    I know yeah cause I KNOW what subject I'm dropping even if I fail all the others but still they make us go to it, I think it's a mild form of torture, my other A2 General Studies exam is on thursday as well so it's all a big mess really!!

    I'm trying to ignore the History work i've been set, which is stupid of me as I'm definitely keeping it!
    This is even worse though, I have to go on a trip round town tomorrow with the English Lang dept. doing coursework research when I know I'm not doing it! It's a waste of a whole day hee hee!

    My school does this. I found starting A2 more stressful than exams, because I'd had 13 exams by that point and all I needed was some time off not thinking about A levels! Thank God I don't have to do that this year!
