I got a U in AS Art History lol, someone else in my class (of 9) got a U as well
It was the first time the college had done the course and the first time that teacher had taught it, we had a 4 hour lesson on a wednesday afternoon, and halfway through it everyone was gagging for coffee! She made us watch videos and slide shows that put us to sleep lol and didnt prepare us very well! For example she said don't study British Pop Art, heh what came up in the exam??
We also were supposed to have had a lesson the day before the 3 exams, she said it was best not to (possibly for her to finish teaching earlier!!) Other A levels I've done have been in lessons of 2, 3 or 1 hours, 4 is insane though especially in the afternoon, and all we used to have was a 20 min break to go get a drink or something, no wonder a couple of people dropped halfway through the year. The teaching was boring and she kept giving us 1,000 word essays to do EVERY WEEK and loads of times people couldn't do it, or didn't do very well with all the other work they had from other subjects.. Anyway now I've rambled on with my explanation, here are the ums marks:
HOA1: 21 (out of 120!!) U
HOA2: 19 (out of 90!) U
HOA3: 10 (out of 90!) U
I actually thought the exams weren't that bad but I wish we'd had better teaching and had been better prepared for what would actually come up in the exam
she only taught us 4 topics for units 2 and 3 as well even though she was advised to teach us a min of 6 topics per unit!
That's the worst I've ever done on anything and although it doesn't really count I wonder if I should re sit
