    Go to your head of sixth form / deputy head (or whoevers in charge of pastrol care) and act like you're really struggling with the pressure, I dunno.. be inventive, act like you're feeling really stressed and thinking about dropping out blah blah. Chances are they'll ask your teachers to be more flexible and lay off you a bit, might not guarentee you freedom from every biology lesson, but its something :rolleyes:

    Well, thats what a friend of mine did. Although, she wasn't pretending. She got all her deadlines extended and was excused from certain lessons / homeworks.
    If you hate the lessons that much, I guess its worth a shot
    Whilst it could work, it could back fire. When I was having a REALLY rough time in October, yes I got deadlines extended (and still do for some subjects), but I was asked more than once if I wanted to take a year out. Also, it does take away time from those who are really suffering as they tend to keep a very close eye on you (or at least, my school does).

    Yup, there's a rather large risk of backfire lol
    My school does too, I think you get regular meetings with them and badgered by teachers asking if you're okay rather a lot
    Twas just an idea - I'd never do it personally :cool:

    I really don't see the point. Just get over it and go to the lesson.

    the best one i heard was a guy whose parents were farmers and hed just walk in whenever and be like- sorry was moving sheep- it worked for him- might not work for most people though...

    and if the class is distracting just put your ipod in (and if the teacher wont let you be inventive as to how you hide it!)

    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 the same problem. Bloody waste of time, in the 5 hours I spend in those classes I could do so much work myself.

    but you just have to suck it up and go. Keep your attendance above 90% and they'll leave you alone. Yeah its not ideal but neither is life... just take your textbook and sit at the back and make your own notes during the lesson.
