|I found this T-shirt in Oxford at Easter and simply HAD TO bring it home for Our Boy...|
Just sending a thought to all those getting ready for exams these days!
Our Boy is preparing for his IGCSE exams which will start 10 May and carry on till 20 June.
It is a different system to how we did our exams back in the days. We used to have full day exams from 9 in the morning till late in the afternoon. Here their exams are rarely more than 2-3 hours and the various component in a subject is divided up, so within a subject like English you will have a grammer component one day and a literature option a second day. All in all he will be having about 20 exams before he is done... So, only a couple of more weeks of school, then the exam period starts and that is the end of the school year...!
We then have two more years of school while he is doing his A-levels and going to University. To be honest, I find it confusing trying to keep up with the changes in the school systems and what the various exams mean and involve.
I am glad it all seems to make sense to Our Boy and he is on top of it...!
