I have had to change my Annual leave as I had booked 4 weeks off starting a few days before we fly to Disney for our first ever visit (excited is an understatment!) to then find out results day was the day I went back to work, I couldn't bring myself to ask for another day off, so have moved it all right by 1 day.

Good luck to all the teens who have exams, and look forward to hearing about their results. And of course good luck to the parents who hold it all together xx
My DD got her GCSE results when we were in Florida, I have such fond memories of that day now. Good luck to your DS and have an amazing stress free holiday

Hello fellow GCSE parents

Dd has done her Spanish and French oral exams last week and all the Drama practicals last term. Her 29 written exams start next week.

DS A Levels start the week after.

I wish theyd both done more work but Ive done everything I can think of to encourage them. My concern is Dd who tends to worry will realise she should have done more after the first written exam so it will be a case if keeping her calm and focused. As long as she gets what she needs to do the A Levels she has chosen then all will be fine.

My DD is doing her GCSEs as well this year. She has already done two Food and Nutrition practicals earlier this year and her German speaking last week. RS is her first exam next week.

She's been attending the school revision classes when she can and has been revising. I tell her that only she knows if she is revising enough. When she opens her results the last thing she wants to feel is disappointed because she could have done better with more revision. She is always anxious over exams so I'm going to get her some Bach's Rescue Remedy as it seemed to help her with her SATs.

My DS is in Year 9 and is currently doing his end of year exams. He has done absolutely no revision whatsoever despite my nagging, but knowing him he will do well. He never worries about exams and most of the time it comes naturally to him. Its so unfair on my DD who tries so hard.

Good luck everyone

This is exactly my son! Im sick of hearing my own voice asking him if hes done or planning to do any revision. I know all hes doing at school now is going over everything they have already learnt I just hope its going to be enough.
