    I have 2 booklets of philosophy, 2 econ essays to write and 10 pages of maths to complete + come up with my EPQ question... It's cruel of them to call it the summer holidays, right?

    It has a paragraph on the bottom called 'expectations' and I'll write it below.

    "
    -You will be expected to have this work done for the first week back.
    -The work represents the standard of text that you must be able to cope with in order to access the course successfully & so you need to know
    -Completing this work is directly relevant to what you will study next year & will give you a head start to an intense year
    -You will be required to show the prep work to your teacher at the start of the year"

    I have highlighted in bold the most sinister parts. I guess that my sixth form isn't rated Outstanding by Ofsted for no reason...

    :hide: that's crazy. I hope it is just to scare you into doing some work and that it's not how much you have to do to be able to cope.

    That was on one of the 30 page booklets from Philosophy, some 100AD transcribed text...

    They're basically warning everyone to study super hard or go home, because they are super strict with high grades - but at the end of the day, it's for the greater good so I have no objections.
