6th Form College

What can you do to ensure that 6th form college is a success? This is not an easy time for most teenagers – they are worried about whether or not they will be able to pass their exams and get into a good university. All it takes is preparation and confidence. There are several things you can do to ensure that your time is 6th form college is well spent and that you are a success:
•    Make sure that you are a boarder. These colleges offer students two options. You can be a weekly boarder or a full boarder. A full boarder means that you only get to go home over the midterm break and when schools close for holidays. A weekly boarder is one who leaves every Friday afternoon and comes back on Monday boarding. If possible you should choose to be a full boarder because it allows you more time to study.
•    You should make use of their teachers. Most students will not approach teachers for help. The situation is usually the other way around – the teacher notices that the student is struggling and then offers help. Your teachers are a great resource if you use them well. You know the areas where you are weak so approach the subject teachers and come up with a plan to help you improve.
•    You should surround yourself with the right people. One of the biggest challenges that teenagers face is peer pressure. If you get in with the wrong crowd books will be the last thing on your mind and you will end up failing your sixth form exams. You should make friends with others who have the same goals.
