ASAP & URGENT - Should i go back to my old school for sixth form?Watch
I have recently moved sixth forms and found that they are very big on independence. I also have three teachers where i cannot learn during their lessons because they don't explain very well. I have tried googling things, revision books and textbooks but i feel it isn't the same as having an actual teacher. However they get good results and have a good reputation and are selective on the students that get in. I have emailed my old school and they say i can come back and to tell them by tonight. My old school isn't selective but for english lit they're doing a play i did at GCSE which would be easier and i know the teachers i would have and they are good. I don't know if its just because of A levels that i'm struggling and if with hard work i could stay at the new school and succeed or i should move back while i can. Thanks in advance
I personally think you would be better off going back to your old school. If you're struggling with the work already and don't like the teaching style of your new teachers, then (at least, in my opinion) things aren't likely to get much better as time goes along. It's up to you of course, however if I were in your position, I would choose to move back to my old school where I'm familiar with the teachers and know that I am able to learn using their teaching styles
Hope that helps
Hope this helps and good luck regardless of where life takes you
One of my friends from Secondary went to a selective state school Sixth Form that gets higher results, whilst I and the rest of my friendship group went to an unselective Sixth Form College which gets lower results. I am predicted 4 A*s but my friend, who doesn't like the Sixth Form she has chosen, is barely getting C's (but she got mostly A's in her GCSEs). She doesn't like her teachers or her classes, and whilst I and others could have gotten into this selective Sixth Form, we much prefered the style and atmosphere for the Sixth Form College so we went there instead. I have no regrets, but my friend has a lot.
The point I am trying to make is that results aren't important, if you don't like where you are you will not do well as you won't enjoy the time you spend in classes or around the building. You have to get through two years, so I think you should go where you will feel most comfortable, regardless of the results.
