    Hey guys, quick question ! @@@@

    Looking back now at GCSE's how far would you agree with this statement.
    "'Teachers teach you how to pass exams, not how to have success.'' It could also be applied to A level teachers -> University education.
    haha, no. Every teacher is different. Some teachers can make you fall in love with the subject. Some will just teach the syllabus. Some are results whores and will teach you how to pass exams. Others will also want you to pass because they want you to do well, and be the best you can be. Depends on how passionate about the subject they are. Imo that's a stupid statement.

    I have no idea what it's like in uni though, but I doubt lecturers will teach you how to uni exams.

    I'm probably going to get flamed for this, but with A levels, having looked at mark schemes for a subject like Economics, I can say that IB teachers will generally make you more successful - the A level mark schemes are so specific that you might as well learn them, but the IB are much broader and will accept any good economics. To me, the latter is closer to success.

    I know we have a week left, but it feels like I have run out of time D:

    It has taken me three days to write a German essay, and that is honestly all I have done. (work wise, at least)

    I've only done a tiny bit of History so far. I've got mocks when I get back as well so I definitely should have done more, but I was in Germany for part of last week and then it was Christmas so I like to think it's acceptable, haha
