Cor bring back the good old O Level i say ! DD and i are really struggling and have both asked how humanities and science works and we are still at a loss . Would love to chat to someone if your in the know for Wales ? Cheers.
Not sure. In Wales they take exams in year 10. In yr 10 dd CHOSE to do Geography,but for some reason then did history for a year.She got a d in her history exam which she can retake to a c grade.She got an A * in her history coursework.This year she is doing modules on geog rs and american history-i think it makes up 4 modules which might eventually give her a gcse in humanities . I just cant believe she spent a whole year studing history for what sounds like the possibility of a quater of a gcse.
I really need to understand it because she is struggling with history re and geo coursework x 4 and 4 exams all for 1 gcse. She did get an A star in all her course works because she is really good at course work and cant do exams.
Should she go through the stress of retaking her history for a c because when she studies she really studies-hours and hours, and she has so much else to revise in so short a time.
