    Other countries don't matter. You've finished compulsory education so the only problem you might get would be a confused truancy officer in another country (who would let it drop once they realised you were foreign) but to be honest you're better off going now and avoiding the really busy tourist season which will happen when everyone else gets out of school. It might also be cheaper to go now if it's an off-peak time (i.e. still termtime).

    Yeah I'd take advantage of the lower prices and fewer other tourists.This is of course assuming your holiday intentions aren't to try and go on the lash and pull. If they are you might be best waiting for the rest to finish.

    Why would you want to?
    I went away one the same day that my GCSE's finished!
    We went to Mallorca for the week!
    It was awful! I was still stressed out and just wanted to relax for a bit beforehand.
    But it wasnt busy there at all so if you are going, now is a good time if you dont want other tourists there!
