    Hi everyone 👍

    I'm starting my sixth form lessons on Monday and I'm just wondering, am I expected to do work after each first lesson?
    What would I do and how would I go about it?
    Because I've heard that you are supposed to do 1hr out of lessons for every 1hr spent in lessons.
    How do you do this?
    What should I do after every lesson?

    At first you probably won't be given a huge amount of work, as people will still be swapping/dropping subjects - teachers tend to go slowly for the first few weeks to allow new students to catch up with the work they miss.

    Honestly though, I never did much work for my subjects outside lessons during the week apart from the homework we were given. At the weekends though, I spent time going over what I'd done in class that week and making revision notes for each subject using what we'd covered in lessons. Doing this is good because it allows you to identify any areas you struggled with and seek help before the teacher moves on to the next topic, and also means that when you come to revise for the exams, you'll already have your revision notes done in advance.

    I hope this helps
