    My psychology teacher has been off for 6 months (went away about nov. time). For a month and a half we went without a teacher. Then we got a sociology teacher who knew sweet FA about psychology. He taught us incorrect stuff. Some lessons we were told to copy from the book. Our class complained ans we were told to be greatful 'we had a teacher and that the course wasn't dispanded' - so yeah, I know what it's like a have a crap/non-existant teacher.

    The college i am at has 2 main teaches to teach HSC and the rest are all agency and half are not qualified to teach the specific unit. So many people are coming out with bad grades. Some students have none at all for some units. Its really bad. It has destroyed some peoples chance to get to the university they want. When we complain the lecturers say its our falut. Anyway two weeks left and i've then completed the course and i feel that a few facts are going to be said. :rolleyes: :eek: :mad: It will all happend in this order.

    you can sue your school if you don't get the grade you were predicted by being taught the wrong syallubus or poor teaching. you can sue for loss of earnings, loss of self esteem and humilation among your peers. We looked at a case in Law about it and the girl won £150,00

    My AS Physics and Pure Maths (P1-P3) teachers were crap. They both got fired at the end of the year, leaving us, the students, in more crap. I had to learn P3 all by myself, and now I'm gonna start learning Unit 2 Physics by myself, and revise Astrophysics (only because I don't have time to learn another Topic).

    Can you reallly? Was it difficult to claim. It's just that the lecturers at our college are good at insulting the students and backing up each other.

    if you were predicted a good grade and you had staff to back up how hard working you are, you could. but you'd have to fork out a lot for a solicitor and barrister, thousands

    wll there is enough to sue my teacher everyone knows shes crap even the school, they as much as said so. She went as far as using my work as handouts for the class, which was wrong because she told me to be stuff in which is what AQA said dont use! So now i feel bad because everyone has my work which i know is wrong and the school just said dont worry about others as long as u make the grade!

    Sueing them has been suggested a few times....

    Predicted grades? I never got those for psychology .... they require a teacher to predict them. Oh well, I'm probably gonna drop it for A2.
