    Drop out










    Jk, don't wanna end up being a btec wasteman, do you? ( that's rhetorical). I'm hating this year too, college is dead after all me m8s dropped out/ went onto btec. Don't worry Brewski, only a few more months left. My plan is to chill till April, stack the bank with P's, then quit my job and smash revision. Early days bruh, why u trippin over nothing.

    I live about 50 minutes from my school but all the traffic makes the journey about an hour and 30minutes.
    I would recommend ensuring that you finish all homework in your study periods which relieves you of the stress of doing it after a long journey home.
    Also, make a timetable. Give yourself set times to work and times to rest.
    Even doing work on the bus is an option e.g. Sometimes I'll use my tablet and a stylus to do some maths past paper questions.

    What subjects are you studying btw?

    I agree. A lot of students take their frees for granted, and tend to doss around with their mates. They're there for a reason, and are incredibly helpful. Use them

    i live really far too, its such a pain. if there's anything you can do on the bus/train/however you travel like use flashcard apps etc. then i recommend that, but tbh i just like to chill for my journey and start work when i get home. What I've started doing is doing my homework when I get home to get it out of the way, when I've finished all the work I wanted to do I chill/watch netflix then sleep as early as I can. Just try and get into a good routine to stop yourself falling behind - i know it's hard. I just try and get my work out of the way asap and then I can chill without stressing that I'm putting off something. Also eat healthy and drink plenty of water!

    I like an hour away from my college too but I don't feel that stressed with A Levels. I think the key is being efficient with your time, you have essentially 2 hours of dead time when in transit, you could revise during that time. I made myself flashcards and do those for my transit hours and it really adds up, two hours of flashcards once a day for every day of term. There's also endless online resources from past papers to video solutions and tutorials. If a lack of time is your issue then you should quit your part time job, the you of the future will regret trying to earn a little extra pocket money in exchange for losing out big time in a competitive job market. In the end it's a long term investment that you'll be hurting by trying to start earning money too early at the sacrifice of qualifications.

    I definitely believe it's possible for anyone to ace their A Levels if they dedicate enough time and put their A Levels above part time work or parties. Regardless, I wish you the best of luck and I hope things turn out great for you.
