    In my small private school, I have a teacher who teaches both Chemistry and Physics. The problem is, he seems unqualified; every year, he ends up behind the course - to the extent of students having to come back during holidays to catch up because the class hadn't finished the course... His 'style' is to go through everything in chemistry/physics in 'full detail' meaning we run out of time to finish the course. Not to mention some of the lessons are off-course (as in using lesson time to give unnecessary details that isn't in the syllabus and will barely benefit anyone or randomly talking about unrelated subjects such as history). Worst of all, he is literally one of those stereotypical, boring and old teachers with a slow, monotone voice. Considering I just chose to do triple science, this frightens me. I don't want D's or C's but in every lesson I just feel like falling asleep. I do not have this problem in any other subject. What should I do?

    Why should education be limited by a specification?

    You sound like someone who isn't very good at science and it trying to blame everyone else.

    I'm actually very comfortable with Biology and most other subjects I take and I found that I enjoy the lessons based on how they teach and because I actually understand what they are teaching. I'm most definitely not the only one in the class that has this problem as I've pretty much asked everyone else. All I was saying is my Chemistry/physics teacher's style really doesn't suit me, and so I have asked for advice on how to overcome this. No need to jump to conclusions and be passive-aggressive for no reason lol

    Nothing you can do. In all honesty I think a good teacher tells you more than the basic exam spec and tries to give you a good understanding. You just need to study in your own time.

    My Biology teacher is so slow and never finishes the spec for any exam. I make sure to finish it in my own time so that I'm prepared for the exams
