    I KNOW IT'S ONLY A MOCK EXAM, but please read the full post!

    Basically, I'm in Year 13, doing the IB Diploma. I take Spanish at Standard Level. When I was in Year 12, we didn't have a great teacher, and I basically winged the oral exams, ending up with a Level 4 (second best in the class though).

    Fast forward about a year ...

    I have switched teachers, and we now have a teacher famous for being one of the scariest in the school. I'm not bad at Spanish (received an A* at GCSE) but I'm becoming progressively worse. It's only a Standard Level mock, but she goes ballistic if you don't 'reach your potential'.

    I think I'm capable of doing well, but this teacher scares me so much, I tend to forget everything I've memorised when I get to saying my stuff...


    TL;DR - Any tips for dealing with scary teachers who act like you've ruined your life when you make mistakes? Sorry for the long post.
