    Tomorrow will be my first day in sixth form, and it is starting to freak me out. I have no idea of what to expect, I literally don't even know if have the right stationary! 😂 Any tips (not just on stationary! About A-levels in general)?

    First of all, well done for making it this far you've done better than about 1/4 of my year in 2014 lol. Stationary wise you should be taking the same sort of thing that you took to secondary school e.g. pens, pencils, a ruler etc. You'd be smart in taking some highlighters with you as well as you'll need them when the going gets tough. You might have to bring a pad of paper too.

    A level wise, Im sure a lot of people told you its going to be harder than GCSE. Sorry to say but they're right. You get a lot more freedom though such as free periods where you can relax with your friends or, by the end of the year, do some work. Its going to be a hard couple of years but if you enjoy your subjects, than it'll be so much better than secondary school!
