    I'm an A-Level teacher.
    You'll have a lot more time and some people struggle with the lack of structure and freedom. Try not to take advantage because the workload of 3 subjects will soon creep up.

    Some people may feel that because they're only doing 3 subjects (in comparison to the 10+ they did at GCSE) that it'll be easier, in fact, it's much harder and you really do need to do independent work.

    GCSE is often very spoonfed, be prepared to think and work for yourself, especially in Sociology as it's a new subject and very abstract at times.

    I am going to sixth form college in September and I’m actually excited, should I be excited?? I’m going to do A level or BTEC law (am unsure about which one) , English language and sociology.

    I am so sick of GCSEs and I’m hoping for a miracle and that sixth form is good to me.
    Can anyone who’s at sixth form tell me what it’s like??

    I actually think A-Levels are quite different in many ways.

    1). The teachers don't spoon feed you as much
    2). A-Levels require more depth and breadth than GCSE- it will take some time to adjust
    3). You do gain a sense of independence. E.g. managing your free periods, having more responsibility for your work and just small stuff like being able to go out and eat at lunch and sit in the common room.
