Everyone is different some would agree some won’t it depend which path you take some paths are harder than others ie medicine in university meaning you mostly would have to do biology chemistry alevel etc.

Not necessarily, but if you are constantly scared of getting old and the future then life really will become worse.

Nope, not for me. I personally love 6th form, everything is more independent at school, and I could drop the subjects I didnt enjoy at GCSEs.
What specifically are you worried about

stress increases by a lot but as others have said here you get to be more independent and imo my experience in sixth form was way better despite all the stress

Please don't be scared. I was very scared of life at your age, but with experience you learn to deal with all the ups and downs of life.

You never know, your life may turn out great and then you will have been worrying for nothing.

Just take it easy, work as hard as you can, enjoy your family and friends and ask them for help if you need it.

Heed the wise words of Junior

Not really the workload, I actually think it is much easier to revise only 4 subjects rather than 10+

I just didn't like the social aspect of sixth form, especially when you join one which has no one from your old school and everyone else just buddies up with people from their last school.. Anyways in my experience, I found it much more difficult to make friends and although I disliked secondary, I now wish I could go back because I have hated my 2 years at sixth form... lucky I only have 6 weeks left though

I agree with this in a big way.

No.
More independence, opportunities and getting closer to having all adult freedoms.
Of course, more pressure regarding studying for good grades and saving for uni accomodation or to move out for work/internship/living with partner or friends.

life after year 11 is what you make it, if you make subject choices that you genuinely enjoy doing you will be fine as this is what will motivate you. with all the freedoms of 6th form you have to become more independent and that is hard but it’s also rewarding, so just make sure you pick subjects you will enjoy

College was **** for me in terms of my studies, but I loved uni. And no, life in general has got much better for me.

And also don't be scared, you don't have to plan out the rest of your life! Just take it slowly, and do what you feel is right

Oh ok and I agree but 4 is still a lot especially at a level so I'll probably do 3. I want to go to a new school bcuz I want a fresh start and want to make new friends so hopefully my experience won't be the same as yours... I'll probably hang out with ppl from my classes tbh.

Yeah I wouldn't recommend 4, better just to get good grades in 3

Wishing you don't have a similar experience to me xD

Got better for me. I hated secondary school and loved being in sixth form because I had more freedom and loved a-levels more than GCSEs. When I got to university I had even more freedom. Looking back, the only thing I won't have again is prom but you get similar events at uni.
