    I’m such an independent learner, I can’t do lessons, I don’t learn anything, the teachers are useless, and it’s such a waste of time. I’m forced to go college most days just to get a tick on the register. It’s pointless. I’m in A2 now and I’ve found out they don’t give study leave. Last year for AS maths I gave myself two weeks off and the whole year I was getting Us but with my independent learning just two weeks before the exam I managed to get an A. And now I need to take A level biology chemistry and maths, I need to give myself more than two weeks! I need study leave to do well, attendance or good grades? I pick good grades but I’m scared I won’t be entered if I don’t attend. I tried talk to my college but they don’t care and think they know how I learn best when they don’t!

    Just leave and ask your parents if you can home school for the reasons above.

    Personally id just get in with it.
