    I'm going to be starting 6th form and am going to be studying sociology (OCR), eng lit and economics (Edexcel). Can you guys tell me how and what to do to achieve a good grade and/or give me any advice???

    To achieve a good grade at sixth form i would advise you to start working hard from the beginning because the mistake i made when i started year 12 was that i only started to work hard after a few months in and if i started studying from the beginning i would have gotten higher grades. To get good grades, work hard and do some independent work outside the set homework for the subjects. Use past papers because they are in my opinion the best revision technique. The main advice is just work hard, put in the effort and you will get the best grades. Most people get really overwhelmed by the change but as long as you organise your time and work you'll do great.
