    So I'm currently taking 4 subjects (3 A-level , 1 AS) and my computing teachers are currently setting my class and I too much work for what has happened this year: our computer system was down for 3 months, and we havent been able to program.

    So now he sets so many too hard programming tasks when he's literally just taught us the basics to try and get us up to speed again.

    But because of this, our teachers are only teaching us the very basics in the theory too.

    Now I know teachers work quite hard but some teachers (especially mine) seem to forget that they are a specialist in that subject but technically as students we're partially doing the same, but in other subjects too. And as I said before, I'm taking 4 subjects still.

    I'm so worried that I won't get the grade I need for Uni but I don't know what to do.

    I've asked if they can do extra sessions but nothing has happened.

    I just don't know what to do!

    Well if it's programming that's the issue then that really isn't a problem. You shouldn't rely too much on your teacher/school to teach you programming, since programming is something you should be practicing on a daily basis. Why don't you try to self-teach yourself some more of the syntax of the language you're studying, and as well spend time to do some progamming challenges independently.
