For those beginning their GCSE journey tomorrow (RE), or later this week with their DD or DS, good luck! It hardly seems any time since I was scanning this site anxiously for helpful tips and reassurance re. The 11+. Now DS1 is year 11 and DS2 year 10 and we are heading into the next unknown. I hope all those in the same position are able to remain sane, or at least vaguely so!
Sending the very best wishes to you all.

And to you. Tuesday for us. Will be quite glad when it all starts to be honest, it feels like a bit of a phoney war!

Good luck to all DS's and DD's - Tuesday they start for us too. DS doesn't seem too bothered about them at the moment - not sure if that is good or bad!

Tuesday for us, and with dd1 in Y11 and dd2 in Y10 I have years of this. Having to be nice to her all the time is very wearying. I long for a good old yelling match instead of having to tiptoe around her every whim. DG

RE for DD today, AS maths (C1) for DS on wednesday and year 5 sats for DS2 all week. Im going to work and staying there!

(DD always verbalises things she is/has learnt, she has just gone out the door spouting quotes from Mother Teresa, anyone she meets on the way to school will think she has completely lost it!)

Ds1 began today, AS economics which was hard, just 8 more exams to go and then we can breath for a bit.

Like you DAO can't wait to stop this tiptoeing and minding what I say just in case we upset him. Breathing deeply and smiling just gets me through.

Roll on June.

Which board was that? Sorry to hear she found some questions challenging. Is it a new spec? DG
