    Heyy Soph!
    Its refreshing to read how someone is copying with 6th form considering I will be doing it next year too.
    I smiled a little reading that we will probably have double the free periods haha, but though double the work load.
    I wish you the best in Psychology heyy and hope you achieve your goal to be better at it by the end of the year.

    I loved hearing about how you’re getting on in sixth form! I know it can be daunting when you have so many frees, especially at the start of the year, and you cannot find the work to fill it. That’s exactly how I felt last year. Don’t worry though, you’ll soon have enough work to fill those hours with! Research methods is a killer isn’t it?! Worst part of psychology but I guess we just have to force ourselves to somehow like it!

    All the best!

      So glad you feel the same about psychology and frees alex!! The frees are slowly getting easier to fill with work!

    This was interesting to read, because being from Italy our school system is so different from the UK! My cousin, who’s from Cambridge, explained to me a bit of how sixth form works and i find it so interesting that you only have 3-4 subjects of your choice and you get to really focus on them. I wish you all the best for this year! 🙂

      Thank you Alya! Yeah we do lots of subjects during GCSEs (when we’re like 14-16) but then during our A Levels (16-18) we focus in on a few subjects, which is quite different to other countries I suppose. I’d be really interested in reading a post about the Italian school system! Thanks for reading, glad you enjoyed it!😊💗

    I absolutely loved English Lit (I still do!) at school, I think it was my first A-level that I picked. I also studied History but absolutely hated the American side, the Tudors on the other hand, I became quite a pro. This has honestly made me miss school a bit 🙈 I’m so glad that you’re enjoying it though! As for feeling tired when school is over, do not let yourself get into bed or go for a nap! Keep your brain active by writing notes on what you’ve learnt during the day.

    Looking forward to seeing your next post 🧡

      Thank you so much for reading Alanna! I never enjoyed tudors but British history topics do interest me loads x💛

    This is so nostalgic for my time at sixth form, I really miss it sometimes! Glad to hear things are going okay for you, it takes a while to get settled into the idea of independent study but I’m sure you’ll work it all out soon. Research methods is by far the most boring topic, I had to do it in sociology and absolutely hated it. Love the post!!

      So glad you enjoyed the post! Everyone’s said they found research methods really boring so it’s definitely given me some hope!😅

    Good luck this term! I took one history course in college and it was so much more involved than I had expected. I can’t imagine an essay every two weeks, the one paper I did about killed me!

      Yeah I take 3 essay based subjects so I get on average two essays to write every week, which is great fun!😂thanks for reading 💛

    I totally agree with all of these! Especially the work load because it wasn’t what everyone told me it would be like. Loved the post! x

    This is so helpful! If I’m honest I’m terrified of leaving high school so this helps so much

    Your about me page still says that you are 15, so I was surprised to see you writing about Sixth Form.

      Thanks for letting me know! Thought I’d changed it but clearly not – I’ll take a look now 😊

    This was actually a really interesting read! I’m jealous (and happy!) that you aren’t finding the workload too difficult. d found that the first few weeks were ok and then all of a sudden there was all of this work coming out of nowhere! Your History course sounds fascinating – I did Ancient History for my GCSE, and I absolutely loved it but I didn’t take it up for A Level. Looking back on it, it’s a shame as I would have probably enjoyed it.
    Also, I as shocked that you spend so long on the bus everyday. Over two hours?! I don’t know how you do it!

    I really wish you the best with the rest of the year though, I’m so happy that you enjoy your subjects!

      Yeah ahaha, perks of living in the countryside, so far away from any sixth forms and buses are few & far between!! I’m actually really enjoying it still & history has probably overtaken English as my favourite at the moment, although it’s safe to say the workload from all three has definitely increased!! X
