    I study there! What subjects will you be doing?

    It's gonna be different this year because the new building will be just the sixth form, which is probably good because there's more space and subjects don't have to share rooms.

    We do have good teachers but independent learning is encouraged a lot, and they do expect a lot especially cause it's quite new so they need to establish a good reputation. There's a probation period in the first four weeks and they ask some people to leave but if you do the work there's nothing to worry about.

    It's pretty fun and there's a variety of people. There's lots of events in the main college too and sports teams if you're into that. I would recommend going

    So will you be joining the college in the same campus then? The really big one? I'm sorry I don't know anyone on that course but it's a really friendly place, I found that I got used to it pretty easily.

    Hello! Sorry I didn't take psychology but a lot of my friends did so if you have any specific questions, I can ask them for you. Don't worry too much about the summer work, it's more of an aptitude test, I think the probation work they give after you've actually started is more important.

    I was told that the Milgram study proposed the agency theory which includes agentic state and autonomous state. I hope this helps!

    Sorry, I only stayed their for a month and it was awful. It has a reputation and it was literally full of gang members. ( no lie) ( Sandwell College)

    I don't know about Sandwell Central Sixth as it's a different campus and has a totally different curriculum seperate to Sandwell College ( its A-Levels and Sandwell College is btec, totally different campus, education, teachers & students) but appreantly the entry requirements were higher than those of other sixth forms in the area... this reply might have made it too late for you but yeah. ( Central Sixth has a good reputation).
