So today I had my 4th chemistry lesson at 6th form and we were doing relative isotopic mass. I didn't really understand it so I asked for help at the end of the lesson. She told me, and several other students who didn't get it, that we should aim lower because if we don't understand this we won't be able to keep up with the rest of the course. This made me and everyone else quite depressed, seeing as its only our first week and we're being told we can only achieve a C. Should I listen to my teacher?

Tremendous teacher, hit the books hard and if you need help just ask around here or get a tutor.

A teacher telling her student to aim lower is essentially her admitting she doesn't want to do her job.

I plan on studying it myself when I get the time, but it really doesn't help with my motivation being told this kinda stuff at such an early stage lol. We are apparently getting a new teacher next year so I'm looking forward to that.

What kind of teacher is that???
Ignore that teacher, i think it is the typical a level science teacher that just reads off powerpoint slides and spoonfeeds information to students cuz they are lazy. Someone I know did their a level in 2019 and had the same kind of teacher but for physics and their class received no support or prep for the paper 3 practical paper so they all performed really poor.
