    Not close to finishing the project and it's due April 8th, help :( ec2406

    Hey all, would really appreciate any advice given here, even if you don't take metalwork, thanks :(

    So I've been working as hard as I can since October at my project, but it's not looking like it's going to get done. I still have to make 4/5 pieces- and by make I mean shaping it by filing but not bending, etc. We haven't even discussed the design aspect of the project (the control console). I've never been the fastest worker, I've always wanted to make things to the best of my ability, but I've sped up to become the fastest in the class so I could finish but even now it's impossible. Our teacher has been missing loads of classes; yet he is the one who is giving out to us, saying that we're not using our time effectively and that he is certainly not giving us lunchtime/evening classes. We only have 2 double classes before it has to be completed, so I have no idea what to do.

      Get your parents to ring the school saying that it is unfair as he (your teacher) was missing so many classes and that it not fair on you and the rest of the students to suffer if it was his fault that ye are behind on your work!

      I agree with Stephanie, also if you could get some of the other people in your class to get their parents to ring too it will seem more legit. I'm not saying you're lying at all but if multiple parents call in the teacher can't turn around and say you weren't working, were lazy etc...

      Thanks for the advice guys. The only problem with the idea of getting others to ring in too is that I'm the only one in the class that actually cares; everyone else couldn't care less about their grade :(

      @Wizo same here. I don't know what I'm gonna do now. I really don't feel happy sitting an exam I'm practically guaranteed a D or below in

      from working relentlessly for the past 73 years as the toilet caretaker in my school i believe the giraffes would payed fairly rather than just some semi-boiled eggs, for this reason i believe ec2406 deserves respect to get the A in geography

      By the way, just wanted to let people know my day practical went really well and my project was nearly done when I last seen it. I may get to finish wiring it later but if not I believe there's still a hope of an A/B. Thanks for the previous advice.
