Do you think it's okay to skip school purely to revise?

Personally I don't think so, but my friend seems to miss about 2 days per week to revise (even though we revise in school) and it is quite unfair...

I think it's fair, if that is how the person best learns.

Likely however most, when they mean to revise at home, just end up procrastinating on Netflix.

Maybe your friend feels revision is more effective at home as he can focus on areas he has issues with. I know I found "class revision sessions" tedious as personally I learn better independently. I don't really see how it's unfair of him.

Some one I know did that during GCSEs, (even missed the leavers day and assembly :d) but she ended up getting the same grades as me, so it honestly depends on how hard you have to work to get grades.
I think its wrong only if you messed up by not revising during easter ahaha!
lol

I guess so, I mean't unfair as in anytime I try to stay home to revise, like all my science and maths teachers call home at least twice on my mums phone and my landline just to ask where I've been. But with him, hardly any teacher calls at all.

Well, I know I could've done more in easter

I had to do this to cope with all my tests, coursework and homework whilst trying to learn everything because my teachers were rubbish. So yes

Yes, i think it is ok because although you do get to revise in school you need some time to retain the information.

I remember wanting to do that because i was not prepared for one of my exams once.

Tbh, assuming everyone wanted to do well, I think if study leave started now then grades will be much higher than if people still attended school.

Also, I hate the fact that teachers force a particular revision pattern onto you e.g. ''this must be done by this date and you have to show me otherwise 1 hour after school'' - surely by now we must know how we need to approach revision to get the best out of ourselves...

No I only miss towards the very end of the year and a lot of other students do it as well so I guess they must have overlooked it/not really bothered about it.

Definitely, some people work best on their own and not with the usual 'class revision' which at the best of times is generally ineffective for some.

Similar thing happened to me. I was threatened to be 'kicked out' for this despite doing pretty well on all class tests. Apparently I must've 'cheated' since I know the content pretty well.
LOL
