dd took a short course in RE and ICT and has just received her grades which are not good given her capabilities. She is quite upset by the ICT one which was D! She did express some confusion during the course and tried to enlist the help of her tutor but he never seemed able to get to her. Is it all lost now or can she resit? As it happens nhe is also her HoY this year and so I need to see him to discuss how she was so far off what was expected of her oin both subjects (she was on line for A in RE but got a C)
You could ask the school to request her papers for each exam and have a look yourself, or better still, see if her teachers will go over the paper with her (you might have to pay). Which year is she? Would resitting add to a GCSE burden this summer?
What are her plans for next year? If she is going on to A Levels and it impacts her choice then meet with the Head and request the papers - make it clear to the Head of Sixth form that this is what you are doing so everyone who needs to know is in the loop. If it doesn't impact her choice, it's not really worth resitting as it will interfere with her A Levels.
If she's in Year 10, the school can pay for a resit if you request it depending on their exam policy.
shes just gone into year 10. Ive made an appointment to speak with her ICT teacher as she had requested assistance many times during the course which was not forthcoming. she is upset at her crap grade and so wants a chance to try and improve on it.
SHe's only doing German GCSE this summer and the rest to follow in year 11.
