Firstly I'm a 17 year old male in year 13 (sixth form). I am sick of school wasting my time. I've had 3 actual lessons in 3 days. I spend so much time walking around, trying to find somewhere quiet to work, and there simply isn't anywhere. It frustrates me a lot, especially with A2 exams impending. I feel like I could do so much more work if I stayed at home, so school is completely pointless. I have a couple of good teachers but when you have to waste a whole day for a 55 minute lesson, it's just frustrating. Tomorrow I'm going to be "ill". What are the possible consequences if my attendance drops a lot?

They may not allow you to take exams, or require you to have a perfect attendance for a while.
Speak to one of the good teachers and ask if they can find you a quiet area to work in. They might be able to recommend something. .

ive finished school now but during the run up to my a2's my attendance dropped to like 70% because so much of lessons was wasting time and 'revision' and i was about 10X more productive at home. i got A*AA in my A levels so it paid off. i hated school as well and was very often less productive at school than at home, so it worked for me. They stopped caring that much because I was leaving soon like they kept giving me late detentions and things but i just didnt turn up to them and the time ran out for them to keep punishing me so. Just do what works for you

During A2 I went to lessons for two of my subjects but I always used to skip lessons for one subject. I literally never went to that class but I didn't care because it was so pointless, the teacher basically talked at us for 1.5 hours and totally digressed from what he was meant to be teaching. So I always used to go home early during lunch. I was better off learning the stuff myself at home. So I think you should definitely stay at home if you work better especially as you have exams coming up, you're right if going in to classes isn't helping you, just work at home it'll be better for you
