    considering it more for AS/A2 but share if you stay off before your GCSE exams too! I have exams next week so I decided I'd take today off to revise and do past papers, I think it helps me more. ALSO catching up on sleep is pretty noice too!

    If it were last minute emergency stuff and I was being taught Chemistry or something unrelated when I had an English exam the next day that I was screwed for, then maybe.


    But I kept on top of it and my attendance was 99% in Year 12 and 100% in Year 13

    Not in GCSE, no. I also find it more difficult to concentrate when I try to revise at home since there is so much more distractions around so I prefer to revise in school. That being said, I'm a Year 14 (A2 retaker) and I've been given permission to take time off to study but have decided to still attend and sit in the library all day because that is what works for me
