    Hey guys! So, I have the same physics and chemistry teacher and she is atrocious! I’m predicted an 7/8 in chemistry by the way. I took double science also, so I could do 3 other subjects, but doing double science means there are a lot of reta**s in my class! Firstly, the teacher does NOTHING when everyone is screaming and shouting! She lets people do what they want! Also she doesn’t teach anything! We spend the whole lesson (60 mins) on one slide doing about 3 Questions! Now I have the necessary physics textbook and am going to learn everything on that inside out. I need at least a 7 in this. My year leader also said I can’t move class due to too many students in a class. So, any advice? What can I do to achieve a 7 with my circumstances. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks.

    How do your other classmates feel about the teacher? Did you talk to your year leader about your concerns for your teacher? Perhaps you could talk to your parents, who could write a letter to the school.

    Learn from the text book and You Tube video, it will set you up for college that way. College will certainly expect you to do more outside work then you do in class.

    If the rest of the class feels that way, you can always have a word with the curriculum manager, saying you have concerns.

    The teacher certainly should be able to control the class, but sadly a few can't or wont, so you will have to learn to blank out the noise and just get on with it. See the class as an introduction to a subject matter rather then teaching the subject, and you wont be disappointed, but do the text book, plus use other sources to get a rounder view.

    If you have a copy of the curriculum it is a lot easier as you can go at your own pace, and read up for the next class.

    Could your parent/guardian take your concerns to the senior management team? We've had to do this a few times and positive change always happened as a result. Two teachers suddenly 'left' after it turned out we weren't the only ones to raise concerns. I think it's actually your duty to do this. There are too many teachers stealing a living; this makes me mad because it potentially could affect the rest of the child's life 😡
