I began this school year with virtual lessons - no change from last year - but after two months we were allowed to return to the classroom if we wanted. I decided to do this, because of the stress of online lessons. The amount of work I have to do has increased, and the method of learning is quite different from studying at home. It's much easier to concentrate though, and all in all I much prefer being at school. I'm happy to have returned, especially as this is my last year at school.
This year has been less difficult than last year as I've got used to the new way of learning from home. Even so, the process of learning is more difficult than when we had face-to-face classes because the teaching time is reduced and the number of distractions at home has increased. I've managed to keep my overall average about 8 and to learn as much as I possibly can as next year I have to prepare for university and I really want to do well. After all, it's not so difficult....
