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!!!
