    Essentially, the teachers aren't giving me any slack at all. I was in the hospital for 10 days due to a bad liver because of this illness and I missed a lot of school prior to that. Anyway, I missed the topics homeostasis and neurones and they're testing me on it next week. I don't have time to learn the topics because I have another test next week, a personal statement which needs to be finished by the 22nd October for an interview evening, a practical assessment guide and lots of homework.

    I've explained to my teachers I'm going to get a U in this test and they don't seem to care. I feel like nobody cares. I caught up with three chemistry topics and we are getting a test on the topics soon and I said it was unfair I had 2 days to learn the topics and everybody had 10 and she said it was my fault ?!?!!

    I just feel really bullied :/

    don't take it so personally... they can't change the whole curriculum because you took some time off and it makes sense to get test grades for you and see where you're up to and how far behind you are (plus the college probably insists regular assessment)

    rather than moaning about the fact you have to do a test why don't you see what your grade is and then speak to your teacher (or personal tutor if they're more approachable) and explain you think you've missed too much on X topic while you were in hospital and is there any way you could do a few catch up sessions together or are there any resources (e.g. youtube, books etc) she would recommend you doing and can she give you any of the class work you missed - they'll probably be more amenable to helping if you actually look like you're trying to improve the situation rather than just bemoaning the unfairness
