Does anybody know if it is possible to have a FULL DAY off College (Or even 2!)

I am losing 5 lessons a week (Maths) so I really am hoping I might get lucky with the old timetable this year

It sounds pretty outrageous to me, but I go to a sixth form college so...

If it's an actual college, yes. If it's a sixth form, probably not.

Some colleges might give you a day off in year 12, although if you belong to a sixth form, not a chance tbh. In year 13 you will almost certainly have a day off (if you're like the majority and take 3 A2s).

Dunno then. Maybe I'm just ill-informed and the majority never have days off.

Because colleges are more relaxed and treat you more like adults, so they trust you to do the work at home, but because you're still at school if you go to sixth form, the teachers don't like to give you days off unless you waste them.

quite alot of people in their a2 year had a day off.

I think its pretty outrageous tbh, though good in some ways.

I had two days with only one lesson on, which sucked. Though one of those days was friday, and i could be home for 11 o'clock. So almost a long weekend every week :cool:

So can people at my school... I'll either stay in school and work in my frees, or go chill out at the local park with friends. I can't wait for the freedom!

In my first year of college I had two full days off. It was fantastic. However, in my second year I had no days off but only one full day, the rest of the days I just had one lecture which was annoying because it used to take me ages to get to college so I was tempted to skive a lot and did :rolleyes: Oh well. Apparently I've got two full days off at uni
