  • How are you & your guys doing?

    DS's start next week, he's got 15 in total to sit going on until mid June, he's in a good position as he's already got one GCSE in Business & Technical Event Management.

    I'm so proud of how he's doing, especially as we moved his school at the beginning of year 10, his last school had written him off and he'd started to believe them, they couldn't see the potential behind the energy & hormones, his current school has made such a massive impact

    Hope you're all bearing up ok also parents.
    Thank you BA for your flight prices!

  • My daughter had her 10 hour art exam last week spread over two days so that is that subject finished!

    The other 20 exams start next week and she finishes on 14th June

    She is not very academic but has spent a lot of hours revising so whatever results she gets I wonít be able to say she hasnít tried

    Quite a stressed household here at the moment

  • My daughter starts hers next Tuesday 14th and is surprisingly calm. Iím not sure if I should be happy or worried that sheís so relaxed 😆. Sheís worked her butt off and weekend revision sessions start on Saturday so Iím giving her a break from going on at her!
    Glad to hear about your son doing so well moving school in year 10. My son will be moving in September into a studio school that starts from year 10 and specialises in business. Iím a bit nervous but heís so keen to move Iím fully supportive

    That's what I keep saying to DS, you've worked hard, all you can do is your best

    Good for her for remaining calm under the pressure they put on them, maybe her school is managing it better also

    Moving my DS was the making of him, whilst very intelligent, ultimately he's a very physical child & doesn't want to keep still, he's also the class clown so that was all they saw, it was heartbreaking. He's at a UTC and chose Business as his specialised subject, they have a far more sensible approach with the kids and treat them like adults, so get the respect back from them, good luck to both of your kids

  • My son has his French reading and writing tomorrow and then a bit of a gap, it is his worst subject so I think he will be happy to get it out of the way..
    I try not to put any pressure on him as he is a worrier so i know he will do the best he is capable of and he is a good lad fingers crossed for them all
    Just eating a lot of chocolate to keep me calm, :-)

  • I have twins so going through it two fold! My gin consumption seems to have increased somewhat!

    Good luck to all the other students and parents. I keep saying to mine, just do your best whatever that may be. GCSEís arenít the be all and end all are they, even though it probably seems like it at the time.
