I've just started at my sixth form 4th week this week, I'm doing maths business and law
I got at Gcse
Maths 6
english 7
science 5/5
and all my others pathways were ranging from 4-6 . no fails. I didn't revise for my GCSEs one bit I didn't really care to be honest as I felt I could do without. A levels and college life has been a big shock to my system, I'm not saying it's difficult e.g. the work however what I've heard is Law OCR is hard and there's tons of workload I feel I'll struggle, maths wow I've heard nothing but horror, and business is an easy A level in my eyes its something that clicks with me anyway. the free periods we have aren't good for me I just don't know what to do, I go home as I don't live far however it's like being a yoyo sometimes , will I get used to it? are these courses as bad as people make it out? will I cope, it's really stressing me out at the minute for the past 4 weeks in fact.

Hey, I'm in the same boat as you (just started 3 weeks ago) and on the stress front, my advice would be to find a productive style of work for your free periods. I always get really frustrated and stressed with myself when I feel I'm not making progress, so to combat this I do something I know will make me feel like I've done some good work. E.g Further maths practice questions or physics flash cards.

You'll get into the routine eventually. Don't forget you've got two years to adapt to the courses and workload - it's only week 4!

Good luck with everything and hope this helped!

Okay fair enough on the revision front xD. When I say revision, I mean re-writing class notes, doing practice questions (especially for maths - which I am doing btw), or reading ahead (maybe also taking notes - especially for heavy subjects like law).

In terms of only doing class and home-work, I would strongly discourage doing that . The genral advice is 1 hour in school, one hour out - that's what I do anyways xD.

If u do all your homework and maybe take an hour out for each subject a week to go over things u don’t understand or just consolidate and revise u will be fine. It’s not easy starting sixth form but if u will stay on top of your work it will make you a lot more comfortable

I took maths as well even though I got an A* and I'm finding it incredibly hard. Over the course of y11 and y10 I never got an A* and the highest was a low A, so that's probably why I'm struggling so much
