    I know what you mean here, my interest in many subjects has been destroyed by exams :rolleyes:
    It's such a shame tbh. Last year I LOVED english... My teacher had a passion for it, she challenged us and really it was amazing. This year... A new teacher talks about herself all lesson. I'm not even making this up "oh girls, remember when you open your results to thank me! I stress so much for you! Say thank you to me. Buy me gifts. Im a great teacher".... She's taught us nothing... We self teach in class.

    :rofl: Maybe that was her idea of a joke?

    I don't really recall ever learning anything of note in any English class... pretty much all I know came from either reading or my mum (who's a former english teacher / writer).

    You can tell she's not joking. Loool she talks about her designer clothes and holidays every lesson. Hahaha she took all the credit for our exam results even though she did nothing. :/ the audacity of some people. Hilarious. She's one to meet. Lol

    And wow! You're lucky to have her as your mum!

    My teacher just chucks a bunch of questions at us, rarely marks our books, and probably the most irritating thing about a teacher...NEVER GIVING A DIRECT ANSWER. :facepalm:

    Very nice, I got 9/10, 19/20 and getting final X/20 on monday , my friend got the same and he had his final marked and got 19/20 again and I put tons more effort, hopefully I got 20/20 but I don't want to say that I did more because maybe he spent all night on it. Good work, good luck .

    Oh yes, I sure am! She's actually working on her first proper novel in her spare time, asks me to proofread/critique it sometimes. I think it's pretty good, hopefully she can get it published and it'll be a success.

    Ah, English Lit A-level... iirc, only one person in my college got an A for the first Lit exam this January.

    Thanks! She seems to think I'd make a good writer for some reason :rolleyes: I can only ever come up with stories when I absolutely have to, like during an exam. Otherwise I just cba really. I'm much more of a maths/physics person, I guess
