    Our head teacher scrapped study leave, so I still have to attend school during my exams. I personally find revising at home more beneficial to me, as I get distracted by friends or just by the class being really noisy. It's as if they don't realise we have exams!

    I don't know whether I should just revise at home and not turn up at school, what should I do?

    You should turn up to school and if there are really distractions around you then just request to go to a quieter place like the library at your school or ask your teacher to make the people around you stop the distractions or just block them out and try and focus on what you're doing. My school scrapped study leave too so I have to revise in my lessons. I understand your situation and if the teachers are not stopping and maintaining these students from creating any sorts of distractions then just leave and go to a more quiet place because this is your one and only chance, don't let anything come in the way.

    I've found a revision technique that suits me. I fist go thorough my books and highlight key points reading them as I go along. I then write down the key points into a revision book while the book is closed and only opening it if i'm suck on a question.
    I have also found if you print out past paper and use two different coloured pens such as red and blue. For example, you could
    write all the things you already know in blue and the things you needed your notes to answer in red. You will then know the things you need to concentrate on as they will all be in red and i've found that this saves a lot of time.
    Hope this helps

    Do your best at school, but maybe take a few days off if you really need to. Chances are you will already have your report etc etc so attendance isn't so important at this stage. Maybe ask your teacher to ask the class to work in total silence, I've done this this week and it actually works, everyone does want to work but it's hard when everyone else is talking. Good luck
