    My chemistry teacher told me that 1 divided by 6 = 6 and today my physics teacher had forgotten about our coursework (the need for it to be handed in and marked) until i reminded him. I thought teachers were there to teach us rather than having to be reminded how to do their jobs by students.

    Dont be too harsh on the Chemistry teacher. We're all human. I'm sure your not perfect.

    However, the physics teacher seems a bit dodgy. Reminds me of my old physics teacher.

    Don't forget the old adage.... 'Those that can't... teach!'

    A lot of teachers aren't that good. A lot of students aren't that good either though, so I guess we're even. As long as the teachers don't bully the kids, they're not so bad...

    Oh! And they're drawing it now are they? Blimey, being a civil servant myself, I find that very hard to believe

    Plus it's only for lower income families - less than 30K between both folks I do believe....

    Hey, you're right...kill the whole lot of them then!

    I heard the saying as, "Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach. And those who can do neither, run the world".

    My history teacher went on a rampage today...ripping up everyone's coursework. Except mine, but I've not handed it in yet. I was told to hand it in beforehand to see if it's right. He hasn't given us any help though, just told us to do the work, source based.

    I finally have the book I've been looking for (it was on reserve, I could have got it weeks ago but was looking on the shelf). Eisenstein rocks!

    Yeah, I find most of my teachers pretty useless... Had a sub for one of my subjects for 6 months, and he's pretty clueless about the whole subject (remembering, this is AS, it's kinda nice to have a teacher who can teach and knows about the subject).

    I've had a bio teacher teach from a Letts revision guide, teaching us stuff thats only required for AQA when we're OCR :confused: I've had another biology teacher give the completely wrong definition of amplitude.

    I was given a mock open book, handed it in, only to be told that they havent got a mark scheme, so it won't be marked (even if it does, it's too late - we're on the real thing)

    I've had teachers loose exam papers and make us retake....
