missing school

Is missing school to study a bad idea? I am able to do 8/9 focused hours in one day on my weakest subjects at home during GCSEs. I feel like I am improving more this way than going into school and wasting time revising with teachers. Is this a bad approach for GCSE's??

Honestly, GCSE students get study leave soon anyway, so why not go to the last 2 weeks of school before breaking things off?
I wish you all the best and good luck!

As someone who didn’t get study leave during GCSEs until our last exam I 100% recommend staying home to revise. It’s easier to pace yourself with revision when you don’t have to move between classes or hunt down teachers for help. (I’m going to assume you can reach teachers via email if you do need any help with anything)

yeah absolutely. We only get 1 week of study leave, and the lessons in school now are just doing past papers (which I have already done as practice) and independent revision. How many days did you take off?
Actually it is the best approach 😁

I took 2 days off (which I honestly regret. It would’ve made a huge difference to my grades if I had more time to independently revise)

If you’re feeling confident in your work and revision I say go for it. There really is no point in sitting in a classroom doing nothing when you can be at home doing the same thing more efficiently. (Plus as much as I do love them, my friends were a huge distraction when trying to revise in class)

Good luck with GCSEs!!

Yeah if you're not finding the lessons useful I would say just miss school. I did that as well, in my school we weren't going to get study leave but pretty much everyone just stopped going to lessons and they ended up letting us have study leave. I think we took at least a week off if not more.
