    Our study leave started on Friday. My first exam is in 2 weeks but exams begin next week. It's a bit rough for those sitting the first few exams. Obviously 6th formers don't go back to school after exam leave is over (a month for 5th and 6th years) but we have fun activities planned to fill the gap between then and our formal leaving ceremony on 23rd June.

    I feel that too, I need all the luck in the world Has anyone ever been picked up though? I'd feel so embarrassed :lol:

    I am glad you asked (thank you btw) :awesome: this cool band right here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vc6vs-l5dkc
    I honestly recommend listening to a few of their songs because their style evolves throughout different albums, and because now it is just Brendon as a full member (kind of a one man band haha). They're amazing.
    Yeah quite a few have been picked up from home they all described it as "awkward" and embarrassing some never opened their door lmao
    Aw no problem! :ahee:
    I will do!! I love listening to music :flute:
    I've heard of panic! At the disco but I've never listened to any of their music
    Love the beat to it though!!!
    The video was amazing lol funny!
    Cool costume though

    I looooove music so much :love: what do you like to listen to?
    If you liked that song you'll probably like their other ones too!
    Can't believe your college would go to the lengths of picking students up, I'm honestly so shocked by that. I suppose you could probably get away with skipping by authorising your absences or yeah, just hiding when they knock. :laugh: Don't tell me they would forcibly enter too? :rofl:

    I don't have a specific tbh I'll listen to almost anything I like all types of music lol
    I doubt they'd forcibly enter
    If they do...I'd be in my closet hiding lmao

    Even if I authorise they'd probably have a fit at me when I get back
    But yeah we have some weird rules to follow

    we do, in the sense that we don't have to go into school in between exams
    but it only starts May 13th, which is 3/4 days before most people's first exam
    but I guess I'm luckier than some people, I can't believe some schools make you go in to school everyday during exam period wtf

    Our study leave starts on 20th May and our first exam is on the 17th, which is really frustrating.
    I guess late study leave is better than no study leave though, right?

    My last day of lessons is the 20th May and my first exam is the 8th June. I get just over two weeks of study leave but I do wish they gave us more a lot of the lessons now are "revision" but it's not helpful.

    Stupidly on the 10th June, when it's not even a study leave for me,I have to come in everyday for two or more exams. It annoys me so much. It's so late,there's not even the point in having one

    Alot of schools have already got study leave but my school stopped doing it last year so basically we leave at the end of May but i dont see the point when i can revise much more at home
    For my GCSEs, we weren't supposed to have study leave, but people just stayed at home and revised anyway after half term, even the teachers recommended that we went home and revised or take a break after an exam

    Now at A2, study leave is more strict, so we are not getting it until 27th of May, plus most people want to stay in school now to get help from teachers.

    Well I go to a boarding school so we have 2 study leave dates. The CIE IGCSE science exams start tomorrow so as of tomorrow day students can come into school if they want, but boarders have to come into lessons as it's still timetabled but it's basically just revision. Then official study leave starts on friday 13th

    Our school still has study leave but they've moved it from early May to June 13th when exams for most people are already over. It's pointless to be honest, I think they should either scrap study leave althogether or move it back to May.

    This is exactly my school, it is the biggest pisstake when you're the type of person that would be much more productive working at home than being in lessons but cos of the people that wouldn't revise during study leave u can't

    The only time I have 'study leave' is between June 20th and the 24th because everyone except triple science students have left kmt but i think that isn't very beneficial

    We go on study leave on the 16th of May. I have three exams before that. Left it a bit late imo.

    If you don't get study just take a day off every now and then and call in sick, that's what a lot of people do.
