Yes
I appreciate it can be depressing and stressful for some but I was in my element and enjoyed every day of it. You never quite realise that.. unless something is troubling you or you have other things going on.. it can be the time of your life.

nope, my sixth form experience was as bad as you could imagine. Especially the second year, I got really depressed, gave up on studying, gave up on homework, didnt social much got very disheartened by everything. At times, i vividly remember that sick to the stomach feeling of 'you know you are going to fail'.

Not really, I did English at AS which bored me to death and wasn't allowed to change and a large part of the lessons seemed useless. There was 1 really funny teacher though, so it wasn't that bad.

sixth form seems so clique, like it never left the lower part of school behind (makes sense cos its attached to schools most of the time) and it's sooooo depressing

No, for me sixth form was a pit of misery, depression and anxiety. You could smell it in the air as you approached.

It was much more enjoyable (not really the right word, but you know what I mean), than high school, but I was still glad to leave at the end of it. I was stressed and depressed for a lot of it (due to struggling with the workload and issues at home, among other things). I'm happy it only lasted two years, I probably wouldn't have coped with any more than that.

I found it far more enjoyable than GCSEs. More independence, free periods, more time for socialising and you're doing subjects that you have at least some interest in. I was really lonely prior to A level and had few friends. In 6th year I made some good friends from studying in the school Library, still keep in contact with them.

If there was one negative for me it would be that I wish I had worked harder at my Maths GCSE to take it on for A level. Got a B, could have gotten at least an A. Maths is so useful for a lot of subjects and I realised that too late. Doing a Chemistry degree and I have to catch-up on Calculus and advanced algebra.

Advice: Do not slack off at GCSE (especially at Maths)
