how do you tell someone to go away?
I'm trying to find a quiet place to study but I don't know how to nicely tell people to shutup or go away. When I try to say this in a nice way, it either implies that I'm fine with people talking by not saying something or they totally think I'm a.... er, have an attitude problem. Any advice?

Tell them something along the lines of, "Guys, I'm really trying to study for this test in (subject) tomorrow. Can you please take your conversation someplace else so that I can concentrate? Thanks"
It's that simple.

Not enough detail.
The only place you are actually entitled to silence is in your own room.
If you are trying to tell people to be quiet in a public area, you do have an attitude problem

Say, "I wish I could talk but I have to study now and, unfortunately, I can only study when it's quiet."
Everyone but a complete social boor will take the hint.

Don't say the same thing every time just something on the lines of; "I need to study; can we talk some other time?" etc.

Say, "Go away, I need a quiet place to study".

The only places you can expect quiet are the library or your car.

U shouldn't tell her. postpone it as much as a threat. U do no longer prefer a woman to come back to u merely reason u have funds! U choose somebody who will accompany u in a bus while the limo breaks down!
