Sorry, willowsticks, I don't check this forum very much any longer. Help being looked for was brilliantly given and thankfully received many years ago now
My son is doing ok. The start of the term has been very stressful. He had worked on his EE during the summer, then thought it was just about done. Then the teacher wasn't happy with it as it was too much of another subject rather than the one it is in.
The we had test after test after test, and IAs to plan and blah blah blah.It seemed very very stressful. Then there were the prediction sagas for UCAS.
I feel a bit like a duck out of water as far as being any help is concerned as my only experience is in A Levels.
But all things being considered we have come to a bit of a calm place now, which is good news. He has submitted his UCAS form, and just fingers crossed for some offers that are not too ridiculous.
Good luck to your son, it seems there is a never ending amount of work to do. I believe, that after Christmas things should improve as we are just really working for the exams then. Fingers crossed.
