I've always felt my grades have always depended on whether a teacher has liked me or not. In my gcse days....i was loathed...no...picked on...repeatedly by my science teachers. This was probably because of the bad reputation I built up early on in the year and which stuck with me for the year. This got me poor grades for these subjects in yr.10. However in yr.11 i decideded to concetrate and got better grades and also a better reputation with my teachers except chemsitry. THis got me 4 A stars, 4 A's and a B in guess what? Chemistry!
In my As levels, I deceided to move on step up and have been on my best behaviour with all my teachers and now that I'm getting treated better..i'm getting better grades...I think it's got something to do with confidence motivation.
DT teacher used to hate me so badly, once he tried to shove my hand in the belt sander [true story] but he's gone now...the fool.
ummm... I'm usually favoured by most of my teachers because they've known me since I was born so you can imagine my frustration when my english teacher (who either loves me or hates me - I'm not quite sure yet - opinions vary) had to ask what my name was 6 times in the first week (last year)!!!
I wouldn't say I was favoured but I do seem to get on with my tutors than the rest of my group. I don't know if its anything to do with the fact that I'm older( redoing A levels) but I just seem to get on well with them all!
I think teachers favour me because Im the 'good' student who never gets into trouble and I do nothiing wrong.
One guy and I were late for English once. He went into the classroom just befre me and the teachers said to him 'I'll have to give you rubbish duty for this' Then I walk in and she's like 'Well, this is only a warning, don't be late next time' So I didn't get in trouble and neither did the guy.
Once, my home group teacher said 'all thse who came in the room after the bell, come and get a rubbish duty slip'. My friends and I were the late ones. We said 'we were in the library', and we got out of it.
most of my teachers favour me because i seem show a burning interest in my subjects (esp physics).
Teachers never favoured me in terms of better marks and I think it is difficult for them to do this as the could be sacked if they get caught. However they did trust me more that others. This meant I could do experiments in labs without anyone else there, I was given keys, and photocopy codes. This gave me more feedom than other students. I also got told lots of things like what was happening etc. This meant staff tended to ask me what was going on (eg fire drills) this was quite embarrasing at times - especially when I knew more that most of the staff.
