Putting a year between Y12 and Y13Watch
Hi, Y12 was a complete mess for me - for half the year, I didn't even show up to school, and for the days that I did, I showed up a few classes into the school day. This is mostly connected to my mental health and medication and all that. Results aren't out yet, but I'm decently sure I scraped by with a few As. Y12, being the absolute hell that it was, was not fun for me, and Y13 is likely to be worse, so I'm wondering if I could take a year off for a break between Y12 and Y13. Would it cost too much? Or would it be outweighed by the benefits it would have on my mental health?
Firstly its unlikely your school would allow you to do that - there are no academic benefits in that, and if anything it will make your situation worse as you will lose knowledge and skills, and make it even more unlikely that you'll get decent grades.
