    At my school, study leave begins after the first week of exams, so I was wondering if i should bunk, the week before the exams and the first week of exams so i can revise more at home? BTW, i would revise more effectively at home since school has too many distractions and its a waste of time since I have to travel to school an hour there and back

    Yes if you know you’ll work better. I revised most efficiently at home for my GCSES and got 9 A*s. However some revision sessions are useful especially from good teachers, for exam technique etc

    This is dependent on your teachers, classroom and learning environment and style.

    Honestly, I would say go for it. IF you have finished all your topics in class and now you're just doing pointless " revision lessons" when you know you would have more time and freedom to revise when and how you want in times for your exams. I did during my GCSE's and it was the best decision of my life going to a library and having the time to revise what I wanted and needed before vital exams and I plan to do it again soon with my A levels.

    Once you've established the exam paper style, mark scheme, learnt every topic there isn't really a point to go in and here the same words when you can be out there learning more vital things you need. Attendance shouldn't matter at this stage and shouldn't stop you from getting vital revision.

    Damn, my school is doing exactly the same as yours and this is what I was thinking of doing. I procrastinate quite a lot at home, but I know (because I’ve done it before) that if I went to the library I would be very productive. I’m not sure if that would sit well with my parents though
