GSCE Information Evening at Holly's school
Holly and I went to the GCSE Information Evening tonight. They were outlining how the exams are structured, revision techniques and classes, dates for retakes and the process for applying to sixth form colleges. The Head talked about these 'shifting grade boundaries' where a 'C' grade now suddenly becomes a 'D' grade. So in effect our poor children have to work that much harder to get the results they deserve! This seems so unfair. Anyway, the sketch above is not of the Head Teacher, I hasten to add, but of the Deputy Head of Year 11. She was very confident and glamorous.
