    I love thinking about it and when I got accepted it was literally the best thing ever, i just wanted to jump around!
    I always feel like i'm the only one though, everyone else acts like its all a chore.
    Does anyone else get as excited as i do about going to college this year?

    Its just school with harder work and more pressure. Nothing to get too excited about.

    I'm in 6th form now & I love it and did when I was first accepted.
    It's so much fun. There are hardly any big classes, my teachers always buys us food & we always laugh without hardly any nagging!
    Enjoy it 'cause time flys!
    Best of luck with 6th form.

    Year 12's cool. But by year 13, you'll be sick of school and raring to leave and head off to uni.

    Having 15 A*'s at GCSE probably wouldnt be enough alone to get in uni?


    Anyways, I was excited about sixth form. After 4 weeks, I no longer enjoyed sports (Would rather sit around in the common/Go home early), but much more focused on school :P then again during gcses, i would really never do homework.

    I dreaded sixth form and was very nervous about it because I'd had a bad time in school, but it was a million times better and I had a good time. Various social issues ruined the final term for me, and that meant I wished away time that I now wish I could get back! So my advice is do your own thing, go your own way, and do what's the best for you at all times! Best of luck, and enjoy your sixth form experience .

    Some subjects i hear are fairly straight forward in terms of AS (e.g. I heard business studies is a very small step). But for most subjects, the first unit of the AS should be fairly ok with a bit of work (Though chemistry i hear excludes this :x).

    Main thing from GCSE to AS is that if you did naff all until the exam period, theres lets say a 75% chance on getting a good grade. If you do that at AS, theres perhaps a 20%-30% chance. So basically you have to work outside of lessons. (Im actually doing essays outside of lessons!! )

    For me it was just a stepping stone to university, but that doesn't mean it was great meeting all the people I have. The work is a ***** though but it's doable if you put the effort in. Have fun
