Good luck to all parents and students ...and teachers, waiting for results
Dd1 has all her GCSEs next week, and dd2 has 3.
Alicoporto, your remark make me fear of the strategy at my DS's grammar where 'just' 10 GCSEs are taken, all in year 12. At my DD's grammar 5 years ago, the girls were sitting a couple more of GCSEs or half GCSEs, some taken in year 11.The system was working well so I do not understand why some schools make the choice of 'just' 10 GCSEs all taken in year 12. Aren't these children at a disadvantage? My DS's grammar is far better placed in the league tables than my DD's one... So I fail to understand the whole thing...
This article shows some different strategies some schools adopt - I do feel all that very scary!http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-23521378
Any reaction to that from persons who have a good understanding of the system?
