    My sixth form has 'compulsory' assemblies every Monday at 8:30 am but my first lesson isn't until 11:15 am and I find it hard to study at sixth form because it's over-crowded. Even the library is mainstream now.

    I haven't been to the assembly for the past two weeks but I've still been marked in as present which is odd.
    I don't want to go to it but I feel really deviant when I don't

    What should I dooooo?

    omg, I had something like that last year at sixth form (silly place to put it on our 1 lesson day) - I'm usually late for things and stopped going to it eventually, no one will notice unless you have a register or something before hand just make sure if you do miss it, make sure you catch up with your friends aftewards so you know what happened so your teachers don't get suspicious...

    I literally never went to compulsory assemblies during 6th form. Think I attended two in two years and they were weekly as well. As it was a big hall with lots of people they never knew who was there and who wasn't. If you can get away with it I wouldn't bother going.

    we had proper registers taken so I had to go :3 but if they mark you in anyway, they're usually not important so go ahead and skip 'em ;P

    Skip them. Only off-course things you should attend are tutorials/homeroom/form/whatever you want to call it where you do things for UCAS submission and other paperwork you need to do.
