College is way better than sixth form. (in my opinion)
Sixth Form puts so much stress on you. Of course unis will look at your grades in it with higher acknowledgement, but jesus you have to do 4 different subjects, all with their own exams at the ends, with all the teachers expecting you to have enough time to do it all. The subjects are also limited, and you could end up doing subjects completely irrelevant to your interest without realising. Like to do animation, I took ICT, Art and Design, IT and Physics. I failed Art.
College has less stress, it’s usually only one course, so you have way more time to focus on the subject you enjoy and can polish and perfect your skills and work in a more suitable timeframe. It gives you more choice to choose the subject you want to, I just found animation and wondered why I hadn’t chose it before. I have more days off to do work at home, though I wish I had more time at college because I actually enjoy being with my friends there, its such a relaxed environment, and I get way better grades, the ones I expect from myself there, and I’m around people with the same interests.
I prefer college because it helps me clear my head to think about other things yet also do what I love. Sixth form was just too much stress for something that would not have been worth the mind-numbing and breaking mental breakdowns, and I can see myself having a way better chance in uni now.
GIRLS — if you hit, slap, belittle, kick, punch, choke, throw things at, or control your boyfriends, you are the abuser. You are not a “strong woman”, “empowered”, or anything similar. You are hurting him. Even if his muscles are strong enough to take it, a hit or slap from someone you love is an emotional blow.
