    HI, ive noticed recently that i have been taking more time off sixth form in order to revise. I feel my time at sixth from is not utilised and my peers distract me too much. Does anyone else do this?

    Everyone can relate to this. But studies have shown that people who go to school = get good grades. I know of a student who stopped attending school after his mocks. spent his time off revising. came back to school out of the blue (on the day of our first alevel exam) and got kicked out of the exam hall during our exam by our head teacher. lol its was hillarious AF. But moral of the story - attend school cuz the teachers will not have it if your not attending their lessons. And you might miss out on topics which could be super useful to you (e.g practicals for sciences/ topics you dont get etc...). Spend your after schools/homestudies and holidays for revision. If your teacher isnt in and your having a cover teacher, revise in class. simples.

    Yeah I do this lol. For GCSEs a lot of us just didn't go to school near exam time for the same reasons you outlined and also that the teachers (at my school, idk about yours) weren't actually going through content, but just made us revise on our own, which I could just do on my own at home.
    I'm gonna do this, this year too for A levels.
