And I don’t know what I’m going to do with my life.
Should I ask my teacher to not consider the assessments when giving my final grade?

If theyre not going to consider the assessments what will they consider when finalising your grade?

As a side note, its teachers who decide what to use.. not students. They need to look for evidence so there has to be some form of assessment.

Do they mark it and then talk to you about your grades before making a final decision?

The papers my teacher set are really hard. Nothing o revise comes up, it’s mostly based on logic

ah, yeah those types of logic questions you usually need to understand the topic, you could try doing past paper questions, since alot of the questions are recycled just in different formats. also have a look at this youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCN4...J8-4jGB1WOdo9w she goes over alot of biology topics and makes them easier to understand. its a good way to get a better understanding of topics.

You don't know what to do with your life? Just carry on with it like everyone, you can't go basing your life over an exam. You aren't screwed even if you do fail

You’re right but I am not worth anything and failing my biology exams will prove this even further. I’m trying to apply for jobs but every single application ends in a rejection. And I honestly don’t know the reason to why I’m still carrying on.

I’m sorry to hear that, do you think you’ll be able to appeal or ask your teachers to reconsider your grade after marking? Do you think they’ll discuss it with you?

So you're basing your self worth on an exam? Stop being so dramatic and grow up. An exam doesn't determine who you are. Just try your best, if you fail move on and do something you are good at plus you can retake as well, not even a big issue

Unfortunately you can't ask them to use alternative assessments unless they were done in exam conditions and covered a good portion of the spec. End of topic tests can't be used as evidence. If you don't do well in biology, you can always resit the exams next year.
