Me too but that was 1987 - my DS was horrified that anyone could see what grades I got. I only got 5 O levels so DS beat me by getting 11 and don't i know about it

He said he felt that too much A'Level expectations and subject matter had crept in to GCSE papers.
Ah that's interesting. My son's English tutor is an ex-examiner and obviously did a good job teaching him! He only had an hour a week since February but it also gave my son the confidence.
My son has spoken to a friend from school now, they do give out ties but charge £7 😂

We had an English tutor from Easter and she was an ex examiner. Best money we spent as without it I donít think my ds would have passed. He took his mock papers and she instantly picked out where he was weak. She gave him some very useful tips of what the examiner was after
