Anyone's child doing the AQE?
My eldest is writing it this year. Agh agh

My DD opted out last year (long story) but I know from her reports that the kids who were doing it (and my chatting to other parents) that it quite stressful and there's an awful lot of work to do.
My cousins DD had to get extra tuition to pass.
I don't like the ethos of the whole thing but it's the system we have here so just have to go with it.

Wishing you luck !!

Not AQE, but DS is sitting the GL. He was going to be doing both but I'm due a baby next week and needed to simplify all our lives. I just keep telling him that in 3 weeks it will all be over. When is the AQE?

No, not this year - we have a break smile My eldest did both the AQE and GL two years ago and the next one will do both next year. Am hoping they’ll be some kind of change/simplification by the time the youngest one is ready for it!
Dione best of luck with the baby

My daughter said the same, she came out feeling quite happy that it was ok. smile

Hopefully the next 2 won't be too bad.
