    I am about to finish my GCSEs and I will be starting sixth form in September.
    I am very apprehensive about the transition and would really appreciate any advice or tips you could give me.
    Also my sixth form has a 'Business Casual' dress code but no other details so some suggestions on what would be appropriate to wear would be greatly appreciated.
    Many thanks

    Business casual more or less just means wear normal yet fairly smart clothes, you don't need to be in a suit but as long as you're fairly presentable and aren't in graphic T-shirts or ripped jeans or anything revealing then you're fine. See this:
    If your sixth form is at the school you currently go to, what do people there normally wear? And if you're going somewhere new for sixth form, try googling the sixth form college and see how students seem to normally dress, then go for a similar level of formality. As long as you're not way overdressed (eg you're in a suit whilst everyone else is in jeans and a shirt) or way underdressed (ripped jeans and a graphic T-shirt) then you'll be fine and nobody will care.
