Coursework Hell

The A-level students are meant to be handing in their coursework this week, and I need to have an abstract good to submit to SVP before the weekend, so everyone is rather stressed to say the least.

Despite trying to live by the sticker on the door to the Cambridge Earth Sciences photography lab ("A lack of forward planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on mine"), the kids are leaving things to the last second, and their stress and panic is scaring me too.

However, I had to laugh when the biggest, scariest-looking student I have ever had the pleasure of teaching came up to my desk, said "Hi Miss," then took several steps backwards before confessing he hadn't finished his report.

Still got it.
