Not going to continue on this topic of QE cull and get another thread locked :) suffice to say that I am a QE parent who does not have any issue with the 6th form selection process.

But I think there are a few people who have posted here over the years who should be suing ChatGPT for copyright :!:

The "internal evaluation process" has its critics but as a QE parent which option would you prefer for Sixth Form progression (not that the school is offering you a choice anyway!):

Option 1. A multi-year, clearly laid out objective criteria that encourages & rewards students for consistent performances via sitting a larger number of harder internal tests but lets the student see his corrected answer sheets, discuss them with teachers and correct those mistakes before the next test, while building core subject competence and working towards meeting a specific target for each subject.

Option 2. A one-off easier public exam but where nerves or illnesses could play a major part and prone to the occassional setting and marking error, while having no visibility (unless challenged) of how your answers were marked or marks were allocated.

This thread appears to have veered off topic. Please stick to the original topic. There are plenty of old threads about QE 6th form entry criteria.
Thank you
