    I'm in lower sixth at the moment, just finished my GCSE.
    I haven't started my first lesson yet in college, but I feel like I'm behind - especially when I see people posting: Dear lower sixth you're already behind all your revisions.

    Definitely not a joke!
    I see people looking so smart in my class so I'm just a bit worried.

    No its not too late
    Basically, we all say that because there is a lot of work to do and a lot of content to learn, we basically are just saying that to make sure people keep on top of their notes and not to get behind and learn the work as you go along

    Nah you're fine, just keep making revision notes throughout the year and use some of your frees to go over your work but you'll be fine (just don't leave revision until like Easter because you'll struggle if you do that)

    People lie.
    When I started sixth form I thought so many people were smart but alot of them failed AS
    I did biology, chemistry and maths
    You haven't had even one lesson, no way you can be behind
    Start taking notes and revising after lessons, you will be ahead of most people

    Thank you for your advice! I guess I'll start asking teacher questions and taking notes as well because I really want to get good grades!!
