    I am doin triple science biology and b3 is really hard, so I asked my teacher if she could help me with it because we have an exam. She said "yeh okay come Wednesday after school" and I was like "okay." The problem is that my exam is on Tuesday and we are going to do revision on Wednesday, so there's no point. I emailed her saying that the exam is on Tuesday so we can't do it on Wednesday and it doesn't matter anymore but she hasn't replied. What should I say to her tommorow because i really need her to go over it with me because I don't get it.

    Just approach her outside of lesson time (before/after school/break time) and tell her exactly what you told us. Make sure you know exactly what you don't understand or what you need help with in terms of your personal revision so you definitely benefit from it. Anything we can help with?

    Just explain to her that you're struggling a little and that you've already emailed her but the day she offered was after the exam. I'm assuming there's a certain topic(s) that you're struggling with? Perhaps ask her if she could quickly go over it, or if there was a better time for her and afterwards how you could best prepare for those specific topics that you weren't sure on in time for the exam.

    basically, you have to revise for the exam after you've done the exam. no ifs, no buts. don't care. your teacher does what she likes.

    if you get a decent grade with doing your revision after you've done the exam, though it may seem tempting, don't repeat the practise. revise before your exams.

    Its a bit late to be asking teacher. Ask her if she can spare 20 minutes and youll be lucky to get that. Youve left it late, so besure to know what your most impornat few questions are, use your time wisely so know what you want.

    Ask her when you aren't in lesson time. Another alternative to it is if you ask another teacher for revision, they might be willing to help you. A question I must ask is... Are you doing your GCSEs now? I'm confused because I do mine next month and if people do GCSEs at different times, the system is broken as answers on the paper can be leaked... Is it just a practice test?
