His notes are hickeldy-pickeldy and he uses too many big words I have to look up in the dictionary. Also expects you to know what things are before we have actually covered them. But once you get your notes rewritten so you can understand them, they are very helpful and, if he is in a good mood and not making fun of you, economics can be an ok subject.

If he liked you, all was well! He often got mad over small things that most teachers would ignore. He would often pick on certain members of the class and let others do as they please. Wouldn't have got through business studies without him!

i was interested in the subject and he was brilliant, great sense of humour and a few beers with us after a-levels and was genuinely interested in what we all hoped to do afterwards. i thought he was great but i do see perhaps he didnt get the best out of people who weren't interested. i suppose in his defence at a-level he would expect people to be interested

Mr McKay is amazing.He got me to keep on BS and then he got me a B so I could get to stay in NI for uni.He does actually care how his pupils do - just dont let him know.He pretends to be detached but he really isnt.He cares about those who want to learn,but if you show him you don't he'll have the same attitude to you

His humour and detached attitude towards the syllabus make him almost, but not quite, the perfect teacher
