    I've been hearing rumours that apparently, study leaves starts at the 13th of May. The problem is, we've already had one exam by then, and that's when the exams come rolling in.

    I could have sworn study leave is meant to be a month before exams start, where students are able to stay at home and study!

    Hiya OP

    Study leave is actually not determined by any national guidelines as such. It's completely up to your school or college to allow you study leave or not. Typically, they expect you to request permission in writing. That's what my school told me when I was taking my GCSEs

    My school doesn't have study leave. I am happy with that because I believe that I would've revise at all if I was to stay at home all day!

    awww i used too believe that study leave was actually time before the exams!

    In my school it just means you don't go to school while exams are going on -.-

    It's subject to your school, if you don't know you're having one by now you probably aren't. My school no longer does study leave but I prefer to go in because you have the support of your teachers and there's less opportunities to procrastinate

    The thing is, I work better at home, because my Mum teaches me better than school does. Also, I think I'd be able to cover a lot at home in comparison to school.

    I can't remember having much study leave before exams at GCSE either, it doesn't have to start that far off the exams, mine must have only started the weekend before.

    At A2 this year, I believe my study leave will begin with the week off in May, then I have my first exam around the 8th of June. I wish we were given more time for study leave.

    i have almost no study leave for exams *cries. My school decided the morning off if your exam is in the afternoon and the day before off if your exam is in the morning.

    THIS SUCKS especially for subjects like philosophy ;(

    You would have that anyway . You should start revising before then.

    The last day before study leave at my school is the last day before May half term, so you do have a few exams before study leave at my school

    It depends on the school. My year never had study leave. (However after some point, we only came in for lessons for the exams. But that was like 2 weeks before the last exam.) But the years before did.
