    P.S. Anyone, do schools/teachers hold specific revision during study leave, so only students committed and willing to revise turn up..
    We're having revision sessions in the easter break -.-

    Wow, I posted this about this time last year - time flies!

    It may seem tedious, but you will benefit from it, trust me. The earlier your school chooses to start revision, the earlier you finish the course, ie more revision time, more time to perfect exam techniques etc

    Until monday we had been told that there would not be any study leave and we would have to revise in school, but they have now changed their minds and we leave on may 11th!
    I think they're running some revision sessions throughout study leave though

    Headteacher tells us in a small-group (approx 12 people or less) that we have 2 weeks study leave.

    Deputy head tells entire year in assembly that "The school hasn't had study leave for 5 years and it will be the same this year."

    Cough.

    If my school didn't have study leave I wouldn't have come to school except for my exams. Simple as. Coming to school would have been to the the huge detriment of my results.

    So many if you seem to have study leave! My school cancelled study leave last year (though most of the year 11's protested and didn't bother coming in).

    I've had to be in school Monday-Friday for at least two hours per day this half term aswell, any of your schools started full on revision for the upcoming exams yet?

    Revision? Most subjects haven't finished all the topics yet, at my school at least, but I wouldn't have thought many would have finished the different topics and units.
    Our school wants us to have study leave, because they realise that we do revise better that way. Unfortunately, it seems Gove has struck again and the government wants us to stay in school, up to at least the end of June, by which point of course the exams will be over. I had actually started to plan a lot of revision to do at home, but now it seems I shall have to change my plans; I highly doubt I'll be able to revise as effectively in school.

    [QUOTE=besarlalluvia;29212450]Does your school intend to proceed with the usual 'study leave' at around May?

    My daughter's school are not having study leave this year, they are having revision classes and some home study periods. It takes my daughter 1 hour to walk to school for a 1 hour revision class, then 1 hour walk home. Surely it would have been more sensible to use the whole three hours at home, and believe me, she spends her whole time with past papers and revision, she is desperate to do well. Her only english revision class is on the morning of her exam and her RS class is on 22/05 but her exam is 14/06. No thought gone into arranging the classes.

    I've got three days of study leave before my first exam, thanks school! But then again, I guess it's better than nothing...

    And nope, no revision. I know I should have, but we haven't finished learning everything, and I'm worried I'll give up and burnout!

    To make myself feel better about this, I count time on TSR as revision, as it's academic and all that. Makes me feel a little less guilty

    My head of year told our entire year that it was now illegal to give study leaves and if we didn't go to lessons that we had finished for it would be put down as unauthorised absences.
