    Is sixth form better when you are able to find a great group of friends? or should I go a sixth form where I have the possibility of one friend?

    (I know it is not all about friends it is about the education but both sixth forms have great education but this topic is important to me)

    Thank you to anyone who replies!!

    It really doesn't matter, I've had 3 friends throughout sixth form (ones just left so now 2), and now only have 2 classes where I'm with one of them. The only real time you'll spend with them is at break/lunch/frees, and in frees you'll need to be working (best advise is to always use your free periods for homework/revision, obviously one here and there spent not doing much is fine, but you really do need to revise and stay on top of work from day 1).
    Just make sure you don't choose subjects just because your friend is doing it, choose the subjects that you enjoy the most or that you need for university or the career you want.
    Ultimately it's up to you, it depends how easily you can and if you're happy to make new friends

    im currently in year 12 and moved to a much larger sixth form and did not know anyone. Its really hard at first being an outside but that helps you focus on your work a bit more in the beginning anyways. After about 3 weeks you will start making real friends and I have found that they are a lot nicer than those at my last smaller school. Its your decision but often taking the chance on something new makes you grow as a person

    Whichever sixth form I'd choose whatever course suits me best. Although at the moment only really have 1-2 friends but I don't see them a lot and I have literally no social life.

    Thank you well at the moment I only have 1-2 friends in school, one is going a college somewhere different and the other one might not even go to a sixth form.

    However, at the moment I do not have a social life, as I don't have many friends and I think it is becoming really unhealthy for me.

    In that case maybe it'd be better to try somewhere new, and find friends that you can socialise with better
