    The unit 2's of subjects are being massivley rushed. Teachers are basically going trhough powerpoints and giving us homework for something we don't even correctly understand. I think we'd learn more just self teaching at this rate.

    Not the best form of teachng is it. I appreciate when a teacher can go to the board and write/draw without the book, shame hardly any teachers do that anymore.

    School is a waste of time to be honest. I'm far more comfortable just sitting at home and working through the text book myself, and then going to school and asking the teacher politely to explain properly on a particular area I am stuck on.

    But then of course, I get EMA! What a curse!

    Same. It's boring as well.

    It seems like the teacher use someone eles' brain when teaching us. If you get what I mean?

    All we did was just taking ****loads of notes which majority of them goes in the bin and never get looked at again. :dontknow:

    powerpoints are frequently used, but yeah, we haven't got halfway through each spec yet in either chem or bio D: We even went to a revision day for chemistry 2 and didn't understand most of the topics covered, some we hadn't even heard of..

    They don't really have much choice - AS exams are so early that some parts of the course unfortunately have to be rushed.

    It's like this in my AS History, my teachers even telling us that we won't get through it all in lessons so we'll just have to do it ourselves, and that's with rushing through it :/

    Precisley! I finish college at 3.45, only for teachers to give us HW which takes 1.5-2 hours(preventing me from actually being able to revise the stuff i need to.Not to mention the whisper of an extra period suggested sometimes! And then saturday classes WTF?)

    He just thought all the random conversation about the stuffs related to the subjects were relevant to the syllabus when it was not.
    Ahh, the amount of times my teachers go off on one about things about the real world. Quite amusing actually. My business teacher always seems come up with a different story about himself and Tesco, every other lesson.

    That's kind of better than my teacher who thought he taught us EVERYTHING already when he has not.

    He just thought all the random conversation about the stuffs related to the subjects were relevant to the syllabus when it was not.

    We ended up being asked every single lesson whether we think we have already coverred everything, when , to be honest, the teacher should know!

    I do Bio/Chem aswell, and I find especially with Bio, the teacher just reads off the powerpoint because we haven't got near finishing. Im gonna have to teach myself too, but they give us stupid amounts of HW, for no reason.If they taught in a decent manner , this wouldn't be neccessary.

    Core 2 - is being really rushed, and so is Mechanics, but to a lesser extent
    History Unit 1 - Still have a week of learning, then have to revise a whole year of work o.o
    History Unit 2 - Finished and doing essay practice, but she never really taught us, it was more we write notes on the chapter then she would go though it in lesson
    Biology - Probably going to be a bit of a squeeze
    Chemistry - One teacher we have plenty of time to finish the course and with the other teacher we keep missing his lessons for school stuff so we are a bit behind :/
