Bunking school (as/a level) watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi, when I first started my a-levels I was really motivated to go in everyday and work, then I got down about the fact that chemistry was so so hard and I found myself starting to take days off on the days the subject was on my timetable. I dropped the subject and picked up philosophy, which motivated me again to go in everyday but recently I have been skipping a few days when I feel really tired and now it's got to the point where I have to force myself to go in (I usually go in 4 days a week rather than 5)....

    I am scared that the school will end up kicking me out considering my attendance is pretty bad, but I am smarter than most people in the class based on the grade differentiation and these people go into school everyday! Thats what is weird, I am still able to keep up to date with my work and even do more and better than them people with 100% attendance. Would the school be understanding because of this, if I am able to produce all the work I have been doing the days I am taking off?

    Anyone else share the same problem or have any advice/help to give me?

    I bunked LOADS at 6th Form, and look at what a success I am.


    I did actually get alright A-Levels, so don't sweat it as long as you can keep up and you're not getting in trouble.

    I bunked Assembly all the time in sixth form, but never missed lessons.
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
