My DD is in yr10 and is struggling with the assessed coursework aspect of the exam. We were given very poor info by the school and she would have been better choosing the the 100% exam based option (the grade boundaries are hugely different).
She has done all the assessed coursework, but can rework it over half term, we had thought that this would be done over yr10/11, not in the first 6mths of yr10.
But anyway...my question is, does anyone have any examples of assessed work or have any website links?She is floundering and not knowing where to improve, she is currently C/D grade after being an A grade student for the last few years. English language is not my strong point and it's too late to tutor.
dd doesn't do this exam board but I found this checklist of devices/things to include if that would be helpful?
Which syllabus is it? There will be a ‘learner guide’ available on the CIE website. Is it 0990?
We don't even know which syllabus it is, the school has been transitioning exam boards and their communication with parents is non existant- we don't get to meet subject teachers.
@sleepismysuperpower1 thank you, I'll print that off as it looks useful.
If it’s an independent school it’s probably 0990, which is quite a new specification, replacing 0550. You should be able to get mark schemes and learner guide from CIE website. What sort of assignments has she been set? I might be able to give some advice.
