I do Higher RMPS and whilst I've not had my prelim back, I think I've completely failed it. And whilst I don't like to blame other people, I feel that I am going to struggle to salvage it as my teacher isn't good. It takes around half the lesson for any teaching to begin, and even then, the teaching is minimal and often goes off-topic. It also takes him forever to mark anything.

I don't want to be too critical but as this is a subject without many outside resources, I'm a tad worried about how I will do. How can I salvage this?

I self-taught Higher RMPS in high school and now I'm studying a second degree via Open University.

I guess what I want to advise is that you could try to study it by yourself. From what I remember, the Higher RMPS textbooks were great.

I feel sorry for you, though - having a not-so ideal teacher and being burdened with self-learning can be stressful, but you can definitely do it. Higher RMPS is really interesting, so it shouldn't be too much of a drag to study it alone. You could also read ahead during class and just do your own thing.

Just got it back. 28/60.

Not as disastrous as predicted but still not a pass.
