Is an hour too long to travel to Sixth form? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    I want to go to a certain college and I know the route and all but I was wondering if their were any students out there that take a similar time to go to sixth form.

    I don't think so, but it depends how you're getting there and whether you think you'll be able to handle it. My journey to my 6th form college was a minimum of 40 minutes (more with traffic) but I have friends who travelled between 1 hr-1.5 hrs and one who travelled over 2hrs.

    If you really want to go, and you think you can be dedicated enough to go everyday, then I don't see why you shouldn't. I'd say if you were walking then maybe that's a bit of a journey though, and consider the area you're travelling in/through.
    The longer you travel, the more tired you will likely be, and the journey will make your day feel longer. Additionally, it my be more difficult to hang out with friends from your new sixth form if they don't live too close to you.

    I don't want to put you off, and it's not that unsual. I don't know the 6th form, so only you can ultimately decide whether you think the upsides outweigh the downsides, I'd just say to consider both.

    Hope this can help you 😊
