It's either half term, or almost half term :eek: If you're in year 12 there may have been some big changes, from schools to subjects to independence needed, while if you're in year 13 the focus has probably been more on coursework (if you have any), UCAS and first year content revision.

So whichever year you're in, answer these few questions:

Sum up your A levels so far in 3 words

Which moment has been your biggest success?

What has been your greatest challenge to conquer?

Scary, challenging and hard work (technically two words but go on, sue me).

¯\_(ツ)_/¯, don't really think I've had a 'big success'.
What has been your greatest challenge to conquer?
My own laziness.

I'm not too sure to be honest - I don't think I've really had many successes haha but probably trying to push myself out of my comfort zone to talk to new people and make new friends
What has been your greatest challenge to conquer?
Procrastinating and trying to keep on top of everything.

Overwhelming, Enjoyable, Challenging



Which moment has been your biggest success?

Actually starting to work hard after breaking off the massive procrastination cycle that usually starts due to our brains being still tired from the GCSEs



What has been your greatest challenge to conquer?

Dealing with the vast amount of workload (homework, self-revision and tests) while remaining sane and easing into a normal, everyday routine (such as eating on time, going to bed on time, etc.) all at once

People aren't too confident I guess :laugh: It was also me that voted the good as I wanted to be able to see the results when the page first loaded, so obviously the standard response is okay...interesting!

I'm in year 12 and my A levels have been quite intense so far but that's just because of the college I go to.

Sum up your A levels so far in 3 words

interesting but stressful

Which moment has been your biggest success?

Probably actually coming to this college. I only have one friend here and I don't know the very vast majority of people (it's in a different city to the one I live in). It has been a personal triumph to have had the courage to come here.

What has been your greatest challenge to conquer?

My biggest challenge other than actually coming to this college is probably dealing with failure and remaining positive. I did "bad" on a couple of tests and I go to a very prestigious college. I was used to being top of the class with very little effort but I've come to realise that I actually have to work now.

You literally described how I first felt when year 12 began, that was a tough pill to swallow :sadnod:

But this thread is a good place for year 12s to vent and get things off their chests a bit. So maybe the moment is just right
