    Don't beat yourself up about it. I've found that students just want to know what they need for the exam - any thing that may be of interest and a welcome diversion from the gradgrind curriculum is rejected by many student because if it's not in the exam then they don't need to know it. Yes, I know it's pretty desperate but that's what modern 'education' has come to.

    OMG Yes - that happened to me - I was complained about to the HT - "dleaf is doing stuff that's not on (ie beyond) the syllabus with us so its harming our grades and we wont get to uni..." one measly half of a double lesson... so much for extension and enrichment...:mad: ungrateful ****. One class I'm glad to see the back of.
