    So I'm just a month into my AS's and I've already had thoughts of dropping school because I'm that fed up with it all but I want to go to Uni so I know I'm just going to have to stick at it even though I really do not want to.

    Basically for one of my subjects the teacher hasn't taught us anything at all and then hands us a bunch of past paper questions on the first section of the specification and expects us to do it all! All she has given us is a bunch of notes like about 50 bloody pages without teaching anything so like who the hell is going to want to read through all those without any teacher explanation? I'm worried I'm going to fail my A levels and I actually don't know what I'll do if that happens because the teacher is useless, she just walked off yesterday and left the class without a cover teacher

    on the other hand, I feel as though it's all too stressful, teachers are making us do class tests to assess our progress and since it's nowhere near May/June I haven't revised one bit and I'll probably fail the class tests and get yapped at even though they don't count towards anything.

    I'm just really tired and depressed at the minute, especially with other students saying "ohhh this subject is so easy I'm going to get an A*" like how can people be so arrogant. Tbh I hope they fail.

    A levels is going to be a step up.

    If you feel the teacher is wrong then make a complaint.

    Its all about exams.

    See if you can change course or consider college if they still have places.

    If you wish to succeed then you have to work hard through the year.

    If its not for you then go and do an apprenticeship.
