    Whats the best reason to not come to lessons?

    Sensible reasons please because i hate my biology classes and i think its a total waste of time since i just sit there for 2 hours listening to my teachers annoying voice talking rubbish when i could teach myself all of the biology she teachs us in a term in a week.

    Pretty please

    I have to admit I did a similar thing, I used my teachers notes etc and got a D in my first exam, I knew it was because her notes were so vague and really only geared to people that want a C. I decided to go home do it myself and just learn then book, and I now have an A overall in Biology. Do what is best for you and your grade, at the end of the day that is all that matters. The best excuse is no excuse, just tell your teacher you feel you would be better iff learning independantly :yep:

    - In an exam.
    - Revising for an exam.
    - Open Day at University.
    - Another teacher needed you.
    - Sorting out something.

    These are things that just come to mind but it depends how good your school is at checking up on things...

    if you're clever enough to teach yourself (or is that just empty arrogance coming through?), you're clever enough to come up with your own excuse.

    well you're thick then. I came up with excuses to get out of PE when I was 11, I'm sure your 16+ year-old self is more than capable and doesn't need to whore for attention on the internet.

    I had the same problem and just didnt turn up to any of the lessons. As long as you do the work in your own time they might not care. I did more work than anyone who actually went to the class and in the end got the highest grade.

    I would advise not aggitating her to much as she is the one that enters you for the exam, and entering as a private candidate is alot more hassle. Even if you have a good excuse I highly doubt she will buy it when you miss every single one of her lesson. The best thing to do is just grin and bear it and then do the additional work you need at home; I stopped going to my lessons about a month before the exam to revise at home maybe you could do something similar? Are you carrying on to do Biology at A level, if so is it the same teacher?
