Day in my Life as an A Level Student in Photos | Sixth Form

Because I have been utterly drained of creative ideas for blog posts recently, I have decided to share with you today what a typical day in my life (as an A level student) looks like – complete with raw, unedited photos! I am slowly trying to ease myself back into writing. hence why this post is predominantly composed of photos. I don’t feel great about this productivity rut but neither do I want to post low-quality content for the sake of posting, as I mentioned in my post a few weeks ago.

For those of you who don’t already know, I am currently in sixth form (Year 12) and so am studying towards my A Levels. Let me know if any of you reading this are doing your A Levels too – I’d be interested to hear what you’re studying!

Anyway, I usually get out of bed at 6AM and wash and dress. For breakfast on this particular day, I had a strawberry yoghurt and banana. Most days, I eat whilst replying to emails, comments and catching up with social media… although I do occasionally read too.

Somehow I managed to miss the bus I usually get (oops) and so I decided to pass some time in Costa. We had a Physics test on Optics this day so I briefly read over my notes whilst I waited.

As I had a free period first lesson, I decided to do some reading for my EPQ. I discovered a magazine which I hadn’t previously come across and that featured a few articles that tied in to my hypothesis very closely, which was great!


After this, I had another three lessons – and no, I didn’t photograph them (!) Today was one of the rare days I have two free periods but because the weather was so perfect, my friends and I decided to get ice cream and spent the last hour of the school day relaxing outside.

After school, I went to the public library to get some books to do some reading around my EPQ title… though I very much doubt I’m going to get through all of these books any time soon.

Once I got home, I spent an hour lazing around on my phone and watching YouTube videos… I do regret it now though because I know I could have spent it doing something a lot more productive. I made myself an omelette (spinach, spring onion and tomato) which I ate whilst watching YouTube.

All I did after that was my Economics homework and started reading one of the books I borrowed from the library. I also made myself a banana milkshake because it was too hot for tea!

And then I went to bed after watching a couple of YouTube videos. Not an enthralling day by any means, I admit, but the entire purpose of this post was to give you a real (and hopefully mildly interesting) insight into my life!

If you’d like to see more sixth form/ A Level/ study related posts, be sure to let me know as I am honestly struggling for ideas at the moment. Also do follow me on Instagram and Twitter to stay up to date on what I’m getting up to.

  2. This post reminds me of my A-Level days, I don’t know how you manage everything including the blog, honestly you are such a 🌟 I would have never been able to manage a blog and A-levels at the same time.
