    I'm hopefully starting my A-Levels after the summer. Due to a birthday of one of my family members, I'm going to miss three days of sixth form around the end of October. I'm really anxious of how much I will miss because the course will still be new and if I will make a bad impression. I hate missing school anyway as I like to keep my attendance up and always worry about missing out on work. What should I do?

    Ask somebody in my class? Email teachers? Ask teachers?

    You'll be fine. Your teachers won't approve of your missing school for a birthday, you'd probably have to make up an excuse like you fell ill or something. Find out what you've missed, catch up on it. Nothing to worry about.. Seriously not worth creating a thread about it!

    Thank you so much! I'm just such a worrier and needed reassurance! I wouldn't approve if I was them, but I can't exactly get out of it what if I miss something important to know for the rest of the course?

    I missed 1.5 weeks of school to go on holiday. Turned out it was fine since we didnt really make much progress in class.

    Just get a classmate to tell you about anything you missed and just look over it in the textbook.
