My family is planning to go away during easter for a week and it's a trip I really wouldn't want to miss, but is it stupid for me to go just before my A levels? I know for a fact I will not be revising or doing any work while there but at the same time we get 2.5 weeks so could I afford to lose one?

Do you think you would revise harder to make up for the time you will not be revising? If so, go.
I think this really does come down to you and how productive you can be in the time before you leave. I would say use this holiday as a motivation to get most of the work done beforehand and then go and take the week off. Just my suggestion. Do what is best for you.

Yeah, I hate having regrets. *gets triggered*
On a more genuine not, totally. I think for us students if 'studying' becomes an excuse to not socializing, it can actually be really negative and isolating. Still feel so bad for not helping my parent around the house because I was 'studying', more like hyperventilating and procrastinating in my room.

I only started studying when I had some work/chores at home to do. I’d basically act like my parents don’t want me to do well in life even though I wasn’t even doing anything remotely educational.

Oh God, so true. The shame and guilt just hit me even harder. Don't worry, we will make up for it.

Sounds like something that happened to me during GCSEs😂. I can't decide what I will regret more going or not going, but like you said it's not like I will be doing work 24/7 anyway so

Right. And you can take the books with you (all my friends did when they went on holidays). Balance is key imo. You can always spend a few hours in the evening away from family and work. Yes, work on a holiday. Like I said earlier, it comes down to you. Assess your situation near Easter but it is entirely understandable if you choose to prioritize your education (are you in year 13?).
