    Hey Guys!

    So just one question really how are you all finding year 13 so far? I'm finding it somewhat stressful and actually a little worries I won't finish my course in time (although I'm sure my teacher has it in control!)

    So how is everyone else feeling about uni and stuff like that!

    Was hopeful i can use year 13 to study more than i did in year 12, but ive found myself to be overloaded with homework and coursework and finding even that hard to complete on time.

    I'm finding it not too bad at the minute just stressing over how much there is to memorise! I'm also sick of waiting for my chemistry teacher to write my UCAS application cause I've had it done for weeks and I just need to wait for him now.

    I'm sure you'll finish your course in time dude!

    Don't worry your not the only one! Luckily I don't have much coursework - only a little for a-level sport but just trying to balance everything is so hard.... I play sport as well outside of school so it's even more difficult - Have you done your UCAS yet?

    Same here there is so much to memorise and understand and be able to apply it! Same I'm waiting for my form tutor to do mine even though he promised me he'd do it the half term - it's frustrating see other offers go out from the uni I want to go to as well!

    Exactly! It was meant to be done by last night at the latest then it goes to our tutors to put them all in one big document,,,then my uni adivisor has to look over every one in the year groups before they send it. I hate waiting so much especially when all the offers are getting sent out.

    Exact same process where I go - but my director of sixth form has to deal with us all and our head of year - but we have to book appointments and they're starting to get filled up quickly - it's so frustrating!

    Ah yeah that's chill! Forensic psychology sounds awesome. A psychology degree was a back up for me if I ever decided not to do a biology based degree.

    I'm a northerner (true northener not that 'Manchester is north' stuff lmao) looking to go further south for uni actually but not too far.

    Hope you enjoy it dude!
