    Title explains all. I'm on a two year GCSE course which finishes up in the summer. Last year I was on all A* and A with two teachers who I absolutely loved, they were really experienced and great but they left last year.

    This year I've got two new teachers - one of them is alright and gives me similar grades to what I got last year, but the other one seems to repeatedly pull my grades down in every end of topic test/mock we do. It's almost like they look for a way to pull me down. I get an energy anyway that she doesn't like me - bit funny and mocking with me at times, and with a couple others occasionally, but mainly targeted my way. Sometimes calls my work out as an example in front of the class as what not to do, which is rather embarrassing at times.

    Some others in the class have commented on how the marking looks particularly unfair on mine.

    I'm just trying to tolerate it as obviously an examiner will mark my final exam, so there won't be any bias there anyway. Any advice on what to do in those lessons, and how to not feel like I'm inept at the subject? I was fine at first but I can feel a bad energy and it's making me feel like I absolutely cannot do the subject - when I felt so much better about it last year

    Same happened to me in Physics (I felt my scorign in my mocks was unfair as my neigbour had written the same things and gotten the marks etc) but I'm just sucking it up - it doesn't reallly matter what your teacher gives you because they won't be your examiner - and if the issue is so bad talk to the other nicer one about the situation?
    Good luck!!
