Does anyone have any advice on how I can prepare physically, mentally and emotionally for Sixth Form? I'm quite anxious about it, and I'm not sure what I can do to help relax and prepare myself so I'm not stressed out. Any advice, tips or 'hacks' would be really helpful! x

Literally start revising early on. I don't want to scare you but unless you're pretty damn smart, A-Levels are hard and last minute revision is going to kill you. I started revising in April and that was the biggest mistake I ever made (still got into my firm) but please start revising early on.

But seriously??? Have some fun

Have fun, bring your own mug in to use in the common room as it will make free periods so much better.

Have lots of folders. I remember so many teachers saying to use the big binders but I honestly found single binders so much easier.
For example in drama we are recommended to have 3 big folders - 1 for component 1, another for component 2 and another for component 3.
I have instead have split it into: portfolio, script/monologue, study play 1, study play 2, performance review. These 5 smaller folders are much more organised and detailed in their divisions and it makes my life so much easier!!

Also date your work as that is what really threw me with my notes is that I couldn't always work out their order. I now use a laptop for VI so it automatically dates my work but trust me, sixth form is 10 times easier if you are organised

Lastly, don't be afraid to ask for help with coursework - I didn't for some of my subjects and I really regret it.
