- 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?

I was in a similar situation in that I had a terrible chemistry teacher for GCSE. I was doing triple science and I wanted to do well because I'd like a career in science. In the end I got an A* but I basically had to teach myself. These were a few things that helped me:
I used to bring my textbook into school and either follow the textbook as they were teaching or if they were waffling I just worked my own way through the book.
I found out about all the resources that were available to me- there are some really useful Youtube videos which were a lifesaver for me!
We also managed to get a group of us together that wanted to learn and we used to help eachother as well as getting help from another teacher.
You have every right to complain though because it isn't right. If you need any help with science just ask
