    hahahah no school for me today . .Generaly i quite enjoy 6th form becasue i find most of my lessons interesting and i get plenty of free periods. At this stage of the year it is also fairly easy although things will get a little more difficult when coursework comes along

    Oh yeah, I really enjoyed "6th Form". It was a great time in my life.............

    Thought Sixth form was awesome, especially being a day pupil at a boarding school, best of both worlds. Got some brilliant memories. Didn't think much of the rest though!

    I hated school. I hated the teachers, the other kids (chavs, people that didn't like me or the smelly kids...great pool from which to make friends), the lessons, the uniform, the location of the damn school (for a start, it was surrounded by farms and it used to stink when they put the fertiliser stuff down), the buildings themselves, etc.

    Not doing well enough for them to let me into 6th form was a blessing

    Well, I was always a very good pupil, had good grades etc, but I found that Sixth Form just wasn't for me.

    The free periods, along with boring subjects and subject matter, lead me to miss quite a lot of lessons. Eventually I dropped out after the first year aged 17 with only a History AS Level to my name.

    Now I'm 18, have a good job with great career progression opportunites and earn very good money. My only regret is that I didn't get a job straight from college. I hold the year of Sixth Form I did as completely wasted. But I can see why some people thrive in Sixth Form, but I found the free periods especially, completely counter-productive.

    Thats the best thing about being at a boarding school, usually some TV to watch.. Used to be at the pub with some mates for most frees unless I had a lot of work on! Location plays a big factor into whether you enjoy sixth form, I'd despise going to college in the middle of nowhere..
