My son took the exam last Saturday. Because of the large number of entrants this year, the boys were split up and put into classrooms instead of in the large hall. I was initially pleased when he told me there were only six of them in the room and then horrified when he then mentioned that 3 or 4 times during the English and VR, 2 boys started starting flicking a rubber at each other! The master in charge spoke to them but it continued until it was eventually confiscated and put in the bin.
Do you think I should write to the school to express my displeasure or am I making a mountain out of a molehill? This distraction may have cost any of the other children valuable points so should it be put on record in case of appeals?
Make your complaint. I certainly would. That sort of behaviour in an important test is appalling, not to mention DISRUPTIVE, and, yes, it may have cost a few valuable points for the other children.
