In the sixth form you will quickly discover that the number of commitments you have has a tendency to multiply!
In addition to your heavy academic commitments, you might also find yourself involved in Sport, Drama, Music and House activities. You will also expect there to be an extension of your social life. All of these will naturally make significant demands on your time.
It is therefore vital from the outset that you should establish your priorities, bearing in mind that you cannot do everything well, and that academic study must always have precedence. As your other interests develop, you must aim for a sensible balance; being over-committed is just as dangerous as being under-committed. You should aim for excellence in your academic studies as a priority. If you feel that you are becoming over-burdened or, on the other hand, beginning to drift aimlessly, you must seek advice from your teachers or sixth from tutors.
