DAY IN THE LIFE OF A QUARANTINED A-LEVEL STUDENT


Lockdown is continuing to be an interesting experience for me. It feels much like when I was home-educated, and seems like a lot of people are getting a taste of studying at home. My routine has definitely changed because of the lack of lessons and the cancellation of exams means my revision plans have flown out of the window.
Because of my previous home-schooling experience, having to complete studies at home doesn't seem all that unfamiliar. I recorded some things I got up to in one day in quarantine, so you can see how sixth form is working for me even though I'm not there. I also wanted a little record of my time during lock-down so I can look back at it in years to come. 

IS WORK EXPERIENCE WORTH THE EFFORT?


I've being back at college for around 2 weeks now, before this I was enjoying my nice summer holiday. Before I finished for my summer in July, I was given the opportunity to experience what working life is like, through the work experience programme at my sixth form college. This was a perfect opportunity for students to get immersed in the world of working. The only problem? I hadn't got a clue what to pick.


WAYS TO HAVE A MORE ETHICAL WARDROBE

In our society it may seem hard to find an ethical way to shop. However, with the fast-fashion industry as it is we need to think about our spending habits in retail shops more than ever. From shopping in charity shops to make-do-and-mending, there are plenty of alternative options that don't cost our planet.

HOME-SCHOOL TO SIXTH FORM UPDATE


I have officially now finished my first year exams at college. The transition from home-education to college has no doubt been a whirlwind. However, it's not quite as dramatic as you might think. So far I have really enjoyed the chance to entertain this new experience. Although I am enjoying a week off whilst I can!
