    I've just finished my GCSE's and I've started buying stuff for sixth form. I'm studying law, philosophy, psychology and history but I have no idea what equipment I'll need. I'm really stressed out and I don't want to buy all the wrong stuff and end up looking stupid! Any ideas about what equipment I'll need?

    Pencil case- include things like highlighter
    Note pad/note book
    Folders with plastic pockets

    I just reused stuff that I already had, saves money that way

    Try looking on the school website to see if there is a specific equipment list. If not take the stuff listed before 😀. I'm starting sixth form this year too!

    A pen and a refill pad. I'd go on Amazon and buy a multipack of Pentel EnerGels and a couple of those Oxford pads.

    Buy your equipment when you need it, saves so much money. In my school, I was able to rob a few ring binders, pencils, rulers etc from the main office. There's no point in buying stuff until your teacher is telling you to.
