Completely honestly, what was sixth form like?
I had a rough time at school, but I genuinely enjoyed Sixth Form. My teachers really looked out for me because they knew that I'd hated school, and I was finally happy to go to every lesson because I actually enjoyed all of the subjects. I got a part-time job in Y13 which gave me freedom to have more of my own money to spend, and it is genuinely a period of education which I liked.

It's all good now. Went from having my head slammed in locker doors in Y8 to getting involved with lots of stuff in Sixth Form, and running a massive society at university, and making lots of great friends.

depends on ur school but i rlly enjoy it at mine. You're super close with your teachers and u can crack jokes and make tik toks w them. No uniform so u can come in ur pjs if u wanted.. no one does tho. Order food into school or go out for lunch. Access to the gym whenever you want. Wake up late if u have a free in the morning or go home early. Study the subjects you love. The younger years are sccared of you.

Downsides: A Levels are tough and you rlly need to focus a lot, and you should probably study in your frees

Sixth forms vary massively- if you get a good (no, strike that, amazing) one like I did, and you're prepared to work hard on subjects you love, it will honestly be fantastic. I'm going into year 13 in September, so feel free to ask me more questions if you want/you're heading to sixth form this year. I think to an extent, sixth form is what you make it, and if you're on the right course and the school is good, you have the chance to make a lot of it socially as well as academically.

Also, don't be afraid to do slightly strange combos of subjects- I take Geography, Politics and Maths and love them all. I've had a fantastic time so far; even during the stress of exams, my teachers were there for me and that was great.

4 subjects is a lot, plus an EPQ???? I take 3 plus an EPQ and that's enough! Maybe you could drop one?

It's just like what you did in previous school years but with less lessons but more independence and intensity

That is so impressive! Did it take time for you to achieve a good life at uni? Or was it good/ much better from the beginning of your first year?
