    Do you mingle with lots of people and are the classes full? I'm afraid I won't make friends as I'm quiet. Is it any different from school. People say it's one of the best times of their life.

    Well it depends . I came to a sixthform which was a school as well , and everyone there that went to the school attached to the sixthform had already their friends, so it was difficult. However I’ve made soo many friends now and feel like I fit in . The tip is just don’t be shy and think people will judge you . Everyone actually just wants to speak to you since they themselves are new as well and want to make friends as much as you do

    I really like the college i'm at atm , i've made lots of new friends and the atmosphere is great . You get to meet all kinds of people through class and at lunch time , i say if u wanna make friends join a club whether it be sporting,academic,music whatever , u should join one cause it'll look great on your cv and you get to make new friends , hoped this helped
