Can i teach LC chemistry to myself as my teacher isnt the best?

The teacher will give us notes on random topics, not in order, and wont explain them. Can I teach myself the subject with maybe a few grinds or should I drop chem?

My Chemistry teacher left mid-year, resulting in weeks of free chemistry! We couldn't really move on as our next topic was more complex. You can definetely teach yourself the theory part of chemistry but you might need help on mathemetical side of chem. If you are in 5th year and finding chem really difficult than you can consider dropping it, however I dont recommend it! If your in 6th year, than dont even think about dropping chem. Just do exam questions daily and keep practicing. Judging by the description of your teacher, he/she seems to be careless about the students, so there is no harm in confronting the teacher and telling he/she to get your act together. Obviously in a more professional manner. Mabye even tell them to switch up the teaching style as you find it difficult to keep up.

You can always get grinds or try transfer to a different chemistry class :)

I basically teach myself every subject already because no teacher is more superior than my own ability to teach myself the extremely basic concepts which exist on the LC syllabus.

Maybe invest in some grinds, I do chem and find it so hard! but its got a huge H1, H2 and H3 rate so it'll probably be worth it
