I'm in year 12 and I study biology, chemistry and psychology. I feel like sixth form is making me feel extremely down. I hate going to school, I feel like the teachers can barely teach properly and I feel like I don't mix in with the crowd.
At my school we have this 'flip learning' technique. We make notes before coming to lesson on a certain chapter(s). Some of my teachers don't even bother teaching properly in lesson, they just hand out a few exam questions and flip through slides that are easily found for free online. I only have a few teachers that actually teach. That's one of the reasons I hate going to school, I feel like it's a waste of time. Hence why I'm sitting at home right now and complaining. Why should I bother going to school if I can do whatever I do there at home? As my motivation declines, my attendance declines.
Another reason why I don't like my school is because of the time table. We have these 'study support' sessions, where students sit in a hall all cramped on circular tables while the teacher screams be quiet for the whole hour, which is ironic because they're making the most noise. I have study support for three hours sometimes, I get sick of it. Furthermore, I hate how my lessons are so spread apart. For example, today I have psychology for first period, three hours of study support and then biology. The day is so stretched out and I can't go home and study in the comfort and peace of my own home.
Changing sixth form doesn't seem like an option for me as it seems like too much of a hassle as I'd have to change exam boards and meet new teachers and people all over again. Also, I'd like to go to university and possibly study Dentistry. Therefore, I can't just drop out of A-levels. I really do enjoy my subjects but the environment at school makes me demotivated. I did alright in my GCSE's (1A*, 6A, 2B ,2C), not the best due to personal reasons but I am academic.
I'm just really confused and not sure what to do, I'd really like to hear someones advice. I'm spiralling down into an unhappy mentality and I'd really like to get out of it before it becomes even worse. I've been in this school for 5 years, so I don't know what else I'd do. Besides, most of the sixth forms in my area are not that great. Apparently, the sixth form I'm at right now is in the top 10%, but I don't see how or why, we may have a fancy building, but the teaching is sh*t. Yeah, I said it.
Anyways, thank you if you got this far. I just really needed to vent and let it all out. I hope someone can give some advice. <3
