    So I am going to start Sixth form this September, and I am feeling extremely nervous. Everybody that did do A levels, can you please give me your top tips and advice for starting.

    Please try not to worry so much about starting A Levels, they likely won't be anywhere near as bad as you might think! For the first couple of weeks things will start out quite slow as students will be dropping and changing subjects, so you won't be thrown in at the deep end!

    Just make sure to work hard from the beginning (but balance your studies with relaxation/hobbies too), ask for help if you need it, and stay on top of you work. I'd also suggest making revision notes as you go along, e.g. type up your class notes each day and use any textbooks etc you get given to supplement them, so that your notes are already completed for when you start revision later on.

    If you're wondering, I finished my A Levels last year! Best of luck!
