GCSE results

Thank you for the people who asked how the results of the GCSEs went. They were as expected and the structure of the qualification lets me and the students have a very good indication of the student's results in May.
In Geography the exam is in Yr10 and the Yr11 is putting together a portfolio of work. As long as I accurately assess the portfolio, as I have done for the previous three years. after a lengthy calculation I can work out which grade there work is.
In Leisure and Tourism the exam is at Christmas in Yr11 so the same idea applies. It does take the fun and pressure out of the day however which is slightly disappointing.
