I really don't think this is a fair comment.

I don't why negative attitudes towards academics/learning are basically normalised nowadays and people with positive attitudes made fun of...
OP's comment wasn't positive .

What do you mean have a life ? You’re acting like you do anything more important than studying. And I don’t care about your A grades, this isn’t what the threads about . I don't believe I am superior to anybody I just can’t stand lazy and disruptive students.
I feel that disruptive is the key thing here. I think a lot of people made it seem like you were making fun of low ability/struggling students for being low ability/struggling. Could tell this is not the case but I think this is what everyone else took from it.

Idk, to me it reflects a reasonably positive attitude towards academics, though they might be slightly passionate about getting their point across.

I mean, in uni, there’s always people stopping lectures/seminars to ask questions. And also loads of people that don’t do the readings (including myself lmao) so have no clue what’s going on and end up talking/chilling, if you know what I mean

At university you’ll meet all kinds of people, including those who you have no idea why they’re on the course and put no effort in, never turn up to lectures and you wonder why they’re still there.

Pre...reading?

Standards of effort just seem a lot more variable at uni. Probably because so much more work is self-directed, and people cope variably well with independence and generally looking after themselves! The syllabus and learning objectives just generally aren't as well defined too... I'd definitely agree that this was a much bigger problem at uni than beforehand, and I went to a uni with pretty uniform entry standards - not the case elsewhere!

Oh yeah, I see - hoped that wasn't as much as a universal thing as it seems to be.

There were some disruptive people in my lectures, when I did go, but luckily those people usually start bunking since there are no repercussions.

Hopefully wherever OP goes they can find a group of interested people, which I have failed to do so far lol since students with the attitude that you describe seem to be pretty commonplace.

Yeah, I might not have a clue myself what’s going on but I never distract others 😂😂✌️

boohoo. if youre really that smart then get ahead on the content and people "slowing down the lesson" wouldnt be an excuse, everyone goes at their own pace and has little to do with your own. complaining about others abilities is immature

i give 4/10

I’m not arrogant or selfish at all. I have had to WORK to get to the level I am at now so why can’t others do the same and save us some time ? They just sit there wasting the teachers time and more importantly STUDENTS time.
Because your parents chose to educate you in the mainstream comprehensive state sector. If you want motivated kids who've been preselected academically, then you need to go private (unless you happen to be very fortunate with your catchment comp)

I understand exactly where you’re coming from. I have no problem with students asking questions. In fact I actually find it helpful because sometimes they ask something that I didn’t even think about asking. However, most of the time my class asks dozens of questions before the teacher even gets to explain the topic. It’s so frustrating because (most of) their questions are so irrelevant and not needed for our exams. I’d say it’s better for them to read the specification before every class to avoid those dumb questions

Is it just me who hates careless people who put in no effort and slow the lesson down . It’s irritating that myself and others who pre-read have to be slowed down because of these stupid idiots Lol. Just me or AIBU
The teacher determines the pace of the lessons since they follow deadlines set by the department. Nobody is stopping you from pre-reading and teaching yourself at home. You don’t have to be rude

This is as much the fault of your teacher for not setting clear guidelines and controlling the lesson properly. He or she should make it clear that there is a time for content, and a time for questions, and be clear about when each of these happen.

I'm so glad I don't teach you. How on earth can you anticipate how I'll introduce a topic? How can you link to future learning or do you know the whole syllabus already?

True but surely at this point you’d expect grown year 13s to know when the time for content is and when the suitable time for questions is without the need of somebody telling them.
