OFFICIAL POST #1 - What the Oxford English Dictionary doesn't tell you about The Day Before Final Year™
Hey guys!

Welcome to my 3rd GYG on TSR! It's been a hot minute and it's like I forget how to write these posts properly :lol:. The intro was deffo a struggle!

I thought I should do my mandatory "Fill You Guys In With The Goss" post before sixth form starts, except there isn't much to be totally honest. I go back to school tomorrow after the summer holidays. I did go back for a couple days before the end of term because I was in Year 12 (with COVID regulations in place) but it didn't feel all that productive for me really. The last proper "in school learning" for me seems more March time to me. I've had all kinds of advice thrown my way about to handle this year, but coronavirus has really spiked a lot of anxiety in me and a lot of Year 13s because we've literally missed out on 6 months' worth of learning and we're expected to carry on completely unphased.

Image

That said, I'm feeling all kinds right now! :rofl:


  • Excitement - The prospect of seeing everyone again properly, and possibly not as socially distanced since we'll be bubbled together as a year group
  • Sorta sadness - Last year of compulsory education! What?! I can't even add 2 and 2. :facepalm:
  • Nervousness - Am I prepared for this year? I hope so!

My summer has been just trying to sort my life out. I've done some LNAT practice and I'm getting about 70-80% in the snippets I'm doing timed, so that's not too bad. I'm really relying on my LNAT to make up for my average GCSE grades but I'm actually enjoying doing it (is that normal or am I just affected? :rofl: ). If anyone's got advice on how to ace the LNAT, please let me know! I've also been revising here and there for my October mocks, which they could be using for my UCAS predictions if I'm not going in for early entry. There are no set topics yet so I'm kinda frantically juggling everything


In terms of what to expect tomorrow: a 3 hour form time to give out info about the year. Not as exciting as it could've been but it's something I guess. :lol:. As for the rest of the week, we're going back to normal lessons so let's see how that goes?

Image

Have a good week everyone! Hope you all have great starts (or continuation, if you're back already!) to your academic year/September! I'll update you soon!

Lots of love,
Razzz

TL;DR This was a load of waffle about my conflicting emotions regarding starting Year 13 lmao

P.S Any ideas for the tag list name/the squaddd? I need some creative inspo :godancing:

TAG SQUADDD:

Aww best of luck for tomorrow and the rest of the year!! :rave: When are you sitting your lnat btw? Is it the same day for everyone? I'm sure you'll ace it
You guys are so lucky, we don't have form any more have fun!

How about berries? :rofl:

TAG SQUADDD:

I think every year 13 is literally feeling a rollercoaster of emotions right now. I’m feeling super excited about going back, a little nervous about the whole covid situation, scared as who knows what is going to happen with our exams and well a little sad because the last 13 years have been leading up to this

Good luck tomorrow, hopefully it won’t be too different and will be nice to be back

Thank you smka! :hugs:
Basically, I have a dilemma as to whether I'm applying to Cambridge or not. I haven't booked yet because if I don't apply, I'll get some more revision time and can send off my score in January. :rofl: I'll defo let you guys know!
Oh our "form" is literally only for tomorrow and then we're kinda disbanding so we don't mix with too many people.

I thought of that too! I'll put it down as an option :yep:
