    I imagine poor teaching is a problem most students face at some point, but the good thing about literature is that you do not need the teacher at low levels. The second, third and fourth options say more about the inadequacies of the person in question than literature to be honest.

    Good point
    I'm just looking for GCSE/ A level students to say what is wrong at a base level and I will further study why they feel this way and what can be improved in the teaching of literature to compensate for this
