So I've received my GCSE results:

English language A
English literature A*
Maths C
Science B
French A*
Spanish A*
History A*
RE A

And I have just enrolled sixth form to do A levels (English lit&lang, French, history, and psychology)

I studied for my GCSE's alone at home due to being ill and I am planning on going into sixth form as I feel I will need more help with them etc (I am a sufferer of CFS: chronic fatigue syndrome/ anxiety and borderline depression)

Does anyone have any advice about revision, the courses etc and what I'm to expect.

Any advice given will be immensely appreciated

if you want to get good grades at A levels, just revise from day one, stay on top of your revision, i have seen plenty of guy and girls who left it too late and ended up getting bad grades, goodluck and well done on your GCSEs

Hey,
I took two of the options that you are planning to take (history and English language). To my suprise I came out with ABB in my as levels.. with less revision than GCSE? How... I do not know. Out of History and Theatre studies, English language was the most challenging. English language a level is completely different to language GCSE... I took it, thinking that it would be easier than lit.. it is not!! you will be learning something called 'Frameworks' and scary words like phonology, lexis blah blah blah. Once you have cracked all the new material is isn't bad but be prepared!!
History is seriously time consuming and you really do have to love and be interested in the subject to pursue it.
I think you have got a really good variety of subjects!
Good luck

well luckily for me I A*ed all of the subjects I want to carry on at A level (English, French, history).. Well done on your results!! Fantastic!! I definitely love the subjects I've chosen which is a bonus. I'm just very worried about how time consuming they will be. I revised the most for History, so I'm prepared for it being a lot harder. Thanks for letting me know about the lang. I wasn't too keen on studying English literature and language combined, I applied for just English literature, but I guess due to people wanting to study both they combined them. Thanks a lot for your advice though, it's appreciated xo
