This week is the final week of full time classes before Lower Sixth break up for study leave to take our AS examinations, and as expected everyone’s going full throttle into study mode. I don't think I’ve ever seen the common room so quiet.
I take four subjects: English Language, Biology, Mathematics, and Computer Science, which are all pretty hefty, so my timetable’s become full with all my free periods being tutor, or study based. Luckily, everyone else in the same boat, so we tend to work in big study groups, taking up as much space as we can.
Aside from the academics, I’ve been involved with the prefect team this year setting up parties for the Year 7s, and 8s, as well as raising money for this year’s prefect charity.
This summer (post-exam period) I’m looking forward to receiving my exam results (I’m gunning for straight As), and have already started talking to teachers about different universities, both UK and Australian based. In July, our year group is going on an overnight UCAS trip to the University of Kent, where we’ll stay in student accommodation, and meet some of the students there.
Good luck to all of PPS Sixth Form, I hope your exams go well.
