    Lucky! The longest gap I have is the May half term gap. All my exams are just one after the other Might not have any hair by the end
    I have the May break without exams too! so my exams are a bit erratic lol. I have a day where I have 3 in one day. My friend has 4 in one day and she gets to go home and do one the next day (which is highly unfair as she can just come on here and find out questions/topics that appeared).

    When she goes home she won't be allowed to communicate with anyone, surely?

    Same! The first week is the first, but that's my last week before study leave.

    Do guys have study leave/when do you go on?

    My study leave begins on the 1st May, then after GCSE's we have work experience from 22nd June - 3rd July and then we have to go into school for the last pointless week before the summer holidays.

    To my knowledge, we don't have study leave, but do not have to come in after our last exam.

    I know someone who had to be in isolation until 6pm because she had a clash that day and wasn't allowed to talk to anyone. I'd hate that, but at the same time you'd get a head start...

    Our school doesn't have study leave! They think we'll do better if we're in school. It'll be full of those pointless sessions where you just have a text book and not an actual lesson. I really hate my school sometimes

    GUYS I NEED HELP! If something (biology shiz) is in a GCSE textbook, but has no mention of it on the exam spec, do I learn it or am I wasting time?

    I would learn it because sometimes minor details are made a big deal of in an exam.

    Yikes, 3? The most I have in one day is 2, and that happens 3 times for me I think. Good luck!

    depends on what it is tbh

    Do you have the exam board textbook? I'd learn everything it has; it's possible they would expect students to... even though it's not on the spec

    OCR have done this in the past, I heard
