Project 365 #310: 061113 No Pressure Then
We've recently had an announcement from Gove that he's trying to end the dodgy practice of schools entering kids for the same exam lots of times to get them a good grade.
The new performance measure is that the government will only accept the first grade that the student gets, even if it improves in later sessions. This should probably prevent early entries.
Despite this, our Maths department are confident that the students are ready, and so the exam desks and chairs came out again for a session today and then another on Friday. Let's hope their confidence is borne out!
