I've just currently began my AS levels at sixth form and was wondering if any y13s+ had any advice they could share with me to help me adjust to the new settings? Any advice on revision, managing time, how much time to spend relaxing, dealing with stress, etc. would be appreciated. Thanks!

Ill address each point to hopefully make it clearer

Revision:
At a-level there's more complex and a larger volume of content, so don't worry if you don't immediately understand/remember everything like at GCSE. You'll probably have a few free periods, so use them to do your homework and to go over your notes from the last few days so everything is fresh in your mind. Revise a bit for your end of unit tests but don't go over board and don't worry about what grades you get at the start, you will improve. Aim to start your revision for the summer around February and you should be fine.

Time Management:
Like I said above, make use of your frees. Don't waste them chatting to your mates, instead do some work which will free up your evenings. If you manage your time well and don't procrastinate then it will be very easy to manage the workload and you can have just as much free time as you did at GCSE.

Relaxing & Stress:
As long as you don't let work pile up you shouldn't get too stressed throughout the year. I made sure to spend one full day at the weekend ( usually Saturday ) doing no work and then I did around 2-3 hours on a Sunday. Use your free time to do whatever you want, keep up your hobbies/sports and maybe get a part time job.

Basically a-levels just require a bit more organisation and work, the only people who struggle are the ones who carry on treating them like GCSE's. Best of luck and enjoy the year, it goes by fast
