    Heyy guyss,

    I go to my secondary schools sixth form and i am in my first year of A-levels. Ever since I can remember, I can't focus in lessons and i don't learn anything even when I am focusing (everything goes through one ear and out the other). I cant even do my work in my free periods! I learn a lot and revise 100% better when i'm at home by myself with textbooks in silence which is only a few hours every evening since I'm required to stay at school during my free periods. I dont get anything done at school and it is a complete waste of time! Is home schooling the best option for me? I really dont know what to do.

    btw i had to miss many school days just before my GCSE'S so i can stay at home and revise and I learnt a lot in those few days than I have in the whole year and those days are what got me my gcse grades.

    Thankyou for your time

    I'd go to a college if I were you. You have more freedom to revise by yourself and you still have the advantage of seeing a teacher on the off chance that you need something explaining on a one-to-one basis.
