Calling all year 13sWatch
Year 13 is basically Year 12, just slightly more applied and slightly harder content.
Oh and start revising in November.
Confused. You said it’s easier than year 12 but also said harder content... whats the truth
The jump from GCSE ---------> Y12 is greater than the jump from Y12 --------------> Y13.
The content get's harder and they expect you to apply it more however, all the concepts and revision methods you used in Y12 (if it works) shall ensure you'll be fine in Y13.
So whilst the content is harder in Y13, relative to how the Y12 content felt fresh from GCSE; Y13 is easier.
Learn from your mistakes in year 12. That's easier to do if you screwed up your grades, especially. Fix those mistakes, and improve your revision technique. Also prepare to make sacrifices if you want to do REALLY well. By sacrifices, I mean less social time, more work..etc
Even if you did well in year 12, make sure to solidify on that and maintain those high standards (which is arguably harder than growing better from bad grades).
Also, start research Unis AS EARLY as possible (or whatever else you're planning to do after year 13, the earlier the better). Get some idea of what personal statements involve and what subject you'd like to study. Although hopefully, you'll already have an idea.
Finally try to enjoy yourself. I didn't particularaly like year 13 myself, but it sure was a lot better than 12
Great advice though! 😂
