    Need some help/advice/reassurance here! Currently on a maternity contract in my NQT year and have taken the Y13 class. They've been a pain since the start of the year and are now arguing that they don't know the content because I haven't taught it them. They argue that since I haven't explicitly taught them everything in the textbook, I haven't taught it them. This is despite using the same unit/powerpoint/resources with a Y12 class who got good results in their mock essays and are happy with the content. I have also provided them with the wording from the spec: I have covered everything on it!

    Thoughts? How do you teach A Level? It's my first time teaching A Level and I'm starting to panic slightly!

    If you have time make sure you have at least. A sentence or 2 about what you have covered each lesson.

    Remind them that they won’t get spoon fed at uni.

    Remind them that A levels are different to GCSE.

    Tell them that as they have been doing 3 hours a night independent study they’ll be fine.

    Offer to look at their revision timetable in lesson time.

    They’re looking for excuses. Make sure they know they can’t blame you.
