i'm resitting yr12 because of medical reasons and i suffer from migraines, headaches and insomnia. i've been having headaches for the past 3 weeks and within these, i pushed myself to attend since we had exams. because of that, teachers think it's due to stress despite me telling them it's due to my medical condition. i've already missed 3 consecutive days of school, went in today and now i don't know if i'll be able to get myself in good shape tomorrow... anyone know of the truancy legislation etc applicable to 18yos?

I've not heard of the truancy legislation but legally after the age of 16 you don't legally have to be in school.

up to 18 you do have to be in some form of education or apprenticeship. After 18 you don't so won't get in trouble but the school will probably want to understand around the medical condition and how it is going to affect you.
