    Hello TSR,
    I want to go to this parents evening on the 19th of Jan and it is compulsory because its the last one before we leave sixth form.
    My step bro is taking part in this young voices concert at the o2 on the same evening and despite me saying yes I will go and them paying £25 for my ticket, I've now said I wish attend parents eve instead and only found out about parents evening last week way after i said yes to this young voices thing.

    Lets just say some people are not very happy about me going for a 'pointless 10 min chat instead of supporting your step brother' . I have a concern over my progress at Sixth Form as am predicted AAA yet in my mocks I got ABC, so to me it really is vital that I see where I went wrong and what I can do to improve.

    What would you do ?
    Thanks,
    Have a nice weekend.

    I'd go to the concert ; if you can't make parents evening then you just email your teacher instead of chat to them in person if you have an issue. I don't understand why you'd rather go into school for parents evening when you have a chance to go to the O2 ? Doesn't make sense to me

    Just because the school say it is compulsory doesn't mean you have to go; they can't make you go in to school outside of the regular school hours and anyways what do you think will actuallt happen if you don't turn up ? Answer : nothing.

    You could always speak to your teachers another time, I think teachers at my school arrange a phone call with your parents if you do not attend parents evening, or they can contact with you via email, in person after school, or something else. I'm sure your teachers would be happy to arrange a brief meeting at another time to discuss your progress.

    They are "so busy and don't have that sort of time"

    Grab them at the end of a lesson. Honestly they won't tell you what you did wrong in the parents evening they will just tell you some generic stuff.
