RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

The forums are mostly read-only and are in a maintenance/testing phase, before being permanently archived. Please use this time to get the contact details of people you'd like to keep in touch with. Send me a message if you'd like to keep in touch with me & Steve.

Please do not make a mirror copy of the forums in their current state - things will still change, and some people have requested to be able to edit or delete some of their personal info.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

Sad Two teachers are refusing to let me do exams in the Hall with the rest of the class

Today in DT, a Teaching Assistant told me that I won't be doing my exams in the Hall with everyone else. She said that this is just so that I can talk during the exam and not get distracted, but I can already tell that she's lying. I wouldn't get distracted in the Hall because if someone even tries to distract me, they'll get disqualified and teacher will give them a big, fat zero. I started crying and asked her if she is putting me in another room as a punishment for telling my math teacher to burn in hell and saying that my Form Tutor fell down the manhole in January; fighting with two kids, calling one of them a stupid Year 10 student, telling a girl to get cancer, swearing at two kids in Albanian, cracking Yo Mama jokes, eating in English, writing a horrible note about a cover teacher, yelling that I want my math teacher back, refusing to throw the note into the bin, not showing the note to my English teacher, not doing English work, lying to a German teacher who used to teach me in Year 7 and 8 and hugging my Form Tutor (Hugging her made me the worst student ever) on February; coming into school with a headscarf on March only because my hair looked horrible (No, I'm not Muslim. If I was, I wouldn't be told off for what I did in March) and bringing pepper spray to school on April before Easter holidays. She said it wasn't for doing any of those things. Not even for hugging my Form Tutor. So I assumed she was judging me because I have autism. She said it wasn't because of that either. Well, it definitely isn't going to help me with anything. Students will make fun of me, I will be in a small room (Probably AF4, which is a Science Resource Room. I heard that it isn't a good place for doing exams. Plus it stinks), and even though my Director of Learning is trying to make not feel bad about hugging my Form Tutor, I will only feel worse about it. There are also JG2 and MF8, but I hate those rooms as well.

Because of this, I had to be taken out of RS.

At breaktime, I talked to one of the Deputy Headteachers about why I can't take exams in the Hall. She told me the same lie a Teaching Assistant told me. I mean, I took a CATS exam (No it didn't actually have anything to do with cats) two years ago in December IN THE HALL and I did not talk, I did not look around, I did not eat, I did not drink (though I could drink water as long as there were no labels on the bottle and I still had a lunch break), I did not have a Mobile Phone, I did not put my hand up and if I didn't know the answer to the question, I moved on to the next one. I did everything I was supposed to and they still banned me from taking exams in the Hall with everyone else.

At lunchtime, I went to the Learning Support room and another Teaching Assistant told me to talk to my Pastoral Leader about it. I didn't want to go to her because every time I try to talk to her, she starts being rude.

I told my mum after school and she said I deserve it as a punishment for bringing pepper spray to school and spraying it on a boy's blazer. What?! I thought hugging my Form Tutor was one million times nastier. I told my mum everything that has been said and she said she can't help me with that. I even talked to another Deputy Headteacher at school today and she said the same thing as the teo other teachers. I WANT TO BE TREATED LIKE EVERYONE ELSE! I DON'T WANT TO DO EXAMS SOMEWHERE ELSE JUST SO THAT I CAN TALK! I WANT TO DO EXAMS WITH THE REST OF MY CLASS! I DON'T CARE IF I WILL HAVE TO BE SILENT FOR TWO DAYS!

How do I get those teachers to move me to the hall? I don't want to be judged because I have autism or be seen as less important than the rest of the class. And I know that I hugged my Form Tutor on February and that it made me the worst student ever, but banning me from the hall is seriously too much for a punishment for hugging a teacher.

I guess I'm gonna be made fun of. Even the two new students I met yesterday will make fun of me. Cry

What is the best excuse to get moved to the Hall?

RE: Two teachers are refusing to let me do exams in the Hall with the rest of the class

Update: it's AG4. Not AF4. Students are not allowed to go into the Science Resource Room and it doesn't stink. AG4 is an exam room for students who are not allowed to take exams in the Hall. It's not nice, and the reason why it's not nice is because there's mould. If I enter AG4, I will be sick. Back when I used to live in Poland (Yes, I didn't always live in the UK) and I was 3 years old, I kept getting sick because of the mould in the house. I know that the mould is in AG4 since this year because last year before going to the dance studio, I peaked through the window to see what the room looks like and didn't see any mould. If it really WAS there last year, I probably didn't look carefully enough. I don't want to go into that room EVER. I want to do exams in the Hall! AF4 is still better than AG4.

And yes, they are not allowing me to do exams in the Hall because I have autism.

I spoke to the third Deputy Headteacher and my Director of Learning and they said they will see what they can do. However, I doubt I will be put in the Hall because one of the Deputy Headteachers said no.

Oh, and I did say I'll end up working in McDonald's, but that didn't do anything. Two Teaching Assistants told me that if I do exams in the Hall, I will not know the answer to any question, talk during the exam and walk around the Hall. She also told me that it is also because she wants me to do exams somewhere else because she will be lonely. Lonely? With lots of Learning Support teachers? If I'm not in the Hall, I will be distracted by the people outside and students will say rude things to me and probably beat me up. The Teaching Assistant who goes to DT with me told me that my Director of Learning and Deputy Headteacher definitely won't be able to put me in the Hall.

What the actual fuck? Are you allowed to file a complaint for discrimination? That sounds like utter bullshit.

Yeah, it is discrimination. Plus I'm going to be sick because I'll be put in AG4 where there is mould and no one wants to get rid of it. If someone is discriminating against me or doing anything rude to me, I can write about it on the Student Statement Form, but it has to be about a student. Reporting a teacher will get me permanently excluded. Plus if a teacher IS caught, they'll only get a warning. In my school, teachers can't get fired for anything.

I will be sick after those exams.

I know. They wouldn't even bother removing the mould from AG4. At least they changed the windows. How am I even going to work in AG4?

I think I'm going to have nightmares for the rest of my life.

RE: Two teachers are refusing to let me do exams in the Hall with the rest of the class

Today in Science, after I marked my Chemistry test paper, I was going to go on Kerboodle, when suddenly, the Teaching Assistant who goes to DT with me came into the computing room and told me that I'm now allowed to do exams in the Hall, but I had to go to the exam invidulator, so that she can tell me how to behave during an exam. I was also told that I will stay after school for 20 minutes, which is ok. I was then told that if I wasn't put in the Hall, I wouldn't have to sit in AG4 anyway. She also printed the wrong paper and called herself an idiot, but said that I can't call ger that. I told her I won't, but I once called my English teacher and idiot (not in front of her) because she punished me for just getting pushed in the corridor by nasty kids. I don't call her that anymore because she treats me better now. Me and the exam invidulator also talked about the silly boys in my Year Group. I told her that one day in Registration, one of the boys told the whole class that our co-tutor is hot. I also told her that a boy in my math class and my science class said "Yes, boss" to my math teacher and "Your G" to my science teacher. I told her that G stands for girlfriend. My science teacher does not have a girlfriend and neither does this naughty boy because he had three (not at the same time) and dumped them.

Only my Pastoral Leader wasn't happy. She said that I should be in BF8 1/2 because I would be able to talk and people would be less likely to distract me. I don't need to talk during the exam and I would still be distracted by the people outside. My Pastoral Leader can be as mad as she wants, but IT IS NOT UP TO HER WHERE I TAKE MY EXAM. It's up to the exam invidulator and the Learning Support. (Yes, she is in the Learning Support, but there are two Learning Support rooms. BF5 and BF8. It is up to the Teaching Assistants in BF8. My Pastoral Leader is in BF5 and not a Teaching Assistant, but the Geography Teacher, Key Skills Teacher and Personal Development Teacher)

I'm allowed to take exams in the Hall now. Smile

Yes. All I needed to do was talk to my Director of Learning and one of the Deputy Headteachers.

I removed the names. I also changed the words "Manager" to "Invidulator" because I put manager by the mistake.

Also, I passed three of my exams. Not sure about the fourth one though. And because I behaved, I'll always take exams in the Hall from now on.
