I thought it might be good to have a support thread, if there are enough of us.

DS1 is starting A-levels in History, Biology and (hopefully) Maths.

I'd suggest they download the current specification for each subject and make themselves familiar with the exam board website.

Brand new school today for dd1! She is taking Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Music. She has already found a friend who was already at the school who goes on the same bus, and was given a tour by the very welcoming "old girls". Happy faces in ss house!

Thanks to all for support and discussion, it has been a great help. Photos to be done today and she is wearing a smile, a nice black and white shirt, and a necklace from her old friends for her recent birthday, depicting the chemical structure of serotonin- EVERYONE asked her about it at the induction yesterday, it was a nice conversation starter. Dd2 helped her with outfit and makeup (she is more inclined to bother with that, hence more skilled! Scrubbed clean and back in navy uniform herself for first day of year 9-no demerits for her!).

Love the sound of the necklace!

Do any of your children have tests this week? DS1 had a Maths test on the first morning (algebra, trigonometry & indices). If he can't pass this on the first or second attempt then he won't be allowed to do Maths A-level and will have to choose a different subject instead.

The subject he is most excited about is History. One of his two History teachers is a friend I've known for ten years. She is an experienced teacher but has never taught any of my children before.

No tests this week but one in Maths 'soon'. Looks like she'll need ring binders for everything.

Yes, ds started 6th form today. He ignored all my suggestions and signed up for Further maths, Biology and Sociology.

Serotonin necklaces are very chic! Apt choice for Chem enthusiasts - very nice of her friends! I'm sure she'll miss them.

No tests here. Just a relaxed induction week for ds2. Has settled down well in his new 6th form. Just as well as you do worry about the pros & cons of the change despite dc wanting it.
