It's not hard once you get used to it, at all. The main difference between year 11 and year 12 is that massive jump between GCSE and A levels and the way the workload is.

With A levels you're expected to do a lot of independent study and your own extra reading around the topic, whereas with GCSEs the information was just there and you didn't really have to go away and do much work outside of lessons...

In terms of general sixth form life it's nicer a lot nicer because the teachers know you're interested in your subject because you're no longer in compulsory education and you would've dropped the subject if you didn't enjoy it. Personally, I think sixth form has been the best part of my school life so far.

The best advice I can give you is to make sure you keep on top of work - it's a little harder to catch up on what you've missed if you're off ill or whatever - and make sure you get a nice balance of school work and having fun :)

only joking...you need to be cautious,last time on getrevising some guy posted that he needed a revision buddy for his exam and i said that i will help, but the damn boy keeps sending silly soppy emails to me tryna flirt..but he failed to do so ..so if i were u i would draw some boundaries

Well 6th Form is hard depending on how u handle your study life as well as social life. in 6th form u get to be treated the way u were never treated be4 (in a good way), a lot of people will respect u but then some people wont however you have to give it ur best shot and put a lot of determination in ur studies. This will definetly make u Fly High. Good Luck!!! :)
