Education is more important than a video game. Don't your parents care? And how exactly do you book a week off school in the UK? You mean you're bunking right?

Big exams like GCSE's should be taken, they are very important. Unlike when I go to school normally, all we do is revise, over and over again.

Yeah "tax burden" is hilarious. Being a parasite of the state because you can't get a job is just what we should be teaching our kids.

Yes I was kidding. I do think that GCSE's are slightly overrated, but that's not to say you shouldn't get them, I got mine.

Missing a GCSE Maths exams is very stupid, considering you really only get one proper shot at GCSEs.

You should go and do it dude, it's not worth missing for a video game, bearing in mind this is your whle future being decided in the next month or so.

As for saying being booked off school, I think he means he's on study leave [a small period of time given during the GCSE period in which kids don't have to go to school in order to prepare for exams. Dunno if that's how it works in the US].
