ive got a year left of school until i leave for college/ sixth form, and im really worried its not going to be as fun as highschool is?? i dont know it just makes me really worried. Especially since i practically got this year of school stolen off me because of the Covid situation and it feels like im not going to be able to enjoy my highschool life because its going to end so quickly. Do you think that college / sixth form is just as enjoyable as my highschool was/is?

I’m about to start sixth form and from what people have told me - yes. Although studies do become more a priority.

It's perfectly normal to be worried about this, but I've found that sixth form is honestly not that bad at all! Especially if you choose A-Levels that you enjoy. It's quite nice to have more freedom with your time and even if you go to a sixth form without your currrent school friends, you'll make new ones really quickly. Obviously it's a step up in terms of your workload, but it's all relative so don't worry - take the time to enjoy your last year of school and look forward to what's to come

In what way ‘do you get more freedom’ if u don’t mind me asking because I thought it would get busier. Also do u think an Epq would take up a lot of time?

At my sixth form you get free periods, and you're allowed to go out at lunch (like to the local Spar lol), and also we don't have to wear uniform anymore. It is definitely busier, but it's nice to have more freedom over how you organise your time I guess. EPQ is a tricky one, it depends on your other A-Levels. If you're taking 4 or 5, I wouldn't recommend it, but I would defo consider it if you're taking 3 and have a genuine interest in something.
