Update: Sixth form is no different from GCSEs. There's a bit more independence. I can now use the sixth form common room. Brilliant. I'm doing the subjects I actually want to do. Really brilliant. No more stupid science or monotonous maths. Now getting the bus to school. Top-notch. Have met some new people who have joined the sixth form. Lovely. The work load is not as bad as I thought it would be. A few more essays. But more time to do the work. Smashing. Overall, it's not a huge shock to the system. It's not much of a step up at all.
