Dear Year 13 – please remember that everyone in the country sat the same paper as you and that you are up against everyone else’s performance, you are not up against the paper.
I haven’t seen it yet but as everyone thought it was hard (nationally) the grade boundaries will be suitably low.
Mr Rice and I have every confidence in you. You have been a fantastic year 13 group and I am not expecting any surprises in the Summer ESPECIALLY not as a result of one bad paper.
Take care, enjoy the Summer and if you haven’t returned your text book yet – DO IT NOW!!!
YEAR 13 – Please return your textbook TO MR THOMPSON as soon as your last exam is over. You must be crossed off a list so don’t give it to anyone else or leave it anywhere.
Year 12 – you may keep hold of your book in order to help complete the terminal velocity project but the above applies to you before the end of term. If you are leaving before the end of the year for any reason, then return your book TO MR THOMPSON before you go.
On the morning of an exam you do not have to attend your timetabled lessons so ALL year 12 can join me in A22 for periods 1 and 2 if you wish.
I will then be unavailable for the rest of the day.
Mr Rice will be available period 3.
Regards, Mr T
