STUDENTS WITH GOOD grades usually continue their studies in Form Six. Whether they stay at their current school or move to another will depend largely on their grades. Given the choice, which would you prefer: a chance to reinvent yourself in a new environment, or the comfort factor of familiar surroundings? Most students prefer to stay where they are. They have established relationships with schoolmates, teachers and the school itself. Being in a familiar environment means no time or energy needs to be spent on adapting to changes. Students that are relaxed and comfortable with their surroundings are often more willing to become involved in extra-curricular activities, such as joining a student union committee. In a new school, students face new challenges. But equally, they can leave behind old problems and start afresh, making new friends, meeting new teachers and enjoying a new environment. These new elements can give them different perspectives and inspirations. A new school may also provide new subjects or better combinations of subjects than were offered before.
