They aren't similar but they're equally pointless. Why not go to school to revise? At home there's no teacher to clarify things whereas in school you can ask and have an answer in 10 seconds.

I'm ill during most of my time at school so I wouldn't call it skiving, but I certainly spend lots of time studying at home. If you are desperate enough for good grades you should be willing to revise at home as well as going to school. In some subjects like English I miss out lots, but I'm on triple science and find that I can cover several topics in about an hour whereas in school we would only cover one in an hour-if that! If you really want to study at home it will only work if you are very dedicated and have great self-discipline, good luck with your exams

I did a lot of work when I was at home- around 5 hours a day (I was away for 4 days in devon, then my birthday, then a silver duke of edinburough hike) I'm no slacker- but I just think every extra hour revising is a bonus- at school so much time is spent waiting (Ie after finishing set questions) And talking (Hard to avoid really) And some teachers are just so bad.
It shouldn't drop below 90% I don't think- and would they really do that? I would of thought they'd support my application as strongly as possible, despite slightly lower attendance (I probably did the best in my school year of 250 students, and hope to continue that)
