    Science teachers always said that every single test we took even the ones to monitor our progress counted our final gcse grade. I later found out from other subject teachers that this is a massive lie...

    You must bring your textbook to every lesson because we will definitely be using it.

    This homework will not take long at all.

    There is no need to worry about......(insert anything exam related here)...

    If you fail RS GCSE you "Will fail at life and end jp working in McDonalds even if you pass all other GCSE exams you take". Still don't see the correlation...

    "I told you about this test/homework last lesson" I am sure some teachers must live in alternate realities half the time... and in a little house with fairy's the rest of the time. (I admit that sometimes the teacher did tell us about the test/homework but more often than not they actually forgot to tell us and we had proof...)

    "I will send your parents the email they asked for last week, at the end of the day and if not by next week for sure." Still haven't got that email... Good thing it wasn't important or anything... (we couldn't make it to parents evening... my parents wanted a brief on how I was doing. I appreciate it can be hard to find the time to send an email that could literally have been as short as 'your daughter is doing fine/terribly/okay/really well'. Ironically the same teacher promised to email me some worksheets for a topic I struggled with to help me revise for A levels. I never got that sheet... got a D in that paper too.

    I've heard that too! Is it not true?
    Yep, it's false. He was actually exceptional at maths but I wouldn't expect anything less from him.

    I also heard part of his brain was missing - I don't know if that part's true

    The rumors that go around about famous people are so weird...

    I find that you'd bring it to every lesson and never use it, and the ONE time you forget to bring it you have to use it! And they're so heavy to carry around with you all day!

    I think it does because I always have that determination to prove the opposite! Thank you so much

    Teacher: GCSEs determine your future.

    I know GCSEs do determine your future to some extent, but I just don't think they're as important as people make them out to be. Apparently, universities and employers focus more on your A Level results and other qualifications, if you have any.

    Also GCSE Chemistry electron configuration, when you get to A level you discover it was all a lie
    (Original post by 98Lauren98)
    Definitely the A-level Chemistry shock! Who knew what orbitals were before that!!
    And when you do chemistry at uni they tell you that that's not the full story either!

    Everyone used to take out their water bottles in the science labs when we weren't supposed to. Our teacher told us that one time someone accidentally drank hydrochloric acid because they thought it was water. :confused:
