As the time for the formal written exams looms it is important for students not to get overly anxious and waste time by worrying. We will provide in-school strategic and intense support to make sure that we have done everything we can to prepare them. What we cannot do is make them back this up by studying at home and it is this that can make a whole grade difference. Those students who have an effective and productive work habit at home will achieve better grades.
does this matter?
Having to retake puts them behind their peers and wastes their time. It is unlikely that they will get the same amount or quality of support that they are receiving right now.
