GCSE Results Day 2017
I wish you all the best of luck on results day. Be pleased (but not too pleased) if you’ve done better than you expected and don’t be too disappointed if the reverse is true. GCSE grades are important in determining the next stages of your education but do remember that in 5 years time, no-one will ever again be interested in your news from today….
I think the most important thing to think about today is this. From around the beginning of April until the end of your final GCSE exam, you have been working independently, working things out for yourself, making notes and using web resources to improve your learning and understanding. You have decided what to study and how best to achieve your learning goals. And these are exactly the skills that will be needed to make a success of the next stage of your education! So the question is “can you keep up these high levels of motivation/determination/organisation when you start your A level courses in September?”
But I hope you will find time for some celebrations before the serious stuff starts again in September! Enjoy the rest of your summer.
Hello! I just wanted to say that by some miracle I got an A* in my iGCSE Biology today. I had been getting Bs and high Cs in my mocks leading up to the actual thing, but I genuinely believe PMG Biology made that difference. It allowed me to consolidate and enhance my understanding of key concepts – helping me to pad my exam answers with that extra bit of precise detail to more gain marks. As I mentioned before in a previous post, I found these blogs really late on (in the few weeks before paper 1); but they clearly helped enormously in the short time I began to follow them. So I wanted to say a huge thank you for taking the time to make such an immensely valuable resource, and I hope that many others will benefit from it also!
All the best,
Many thanks – I’m delighted for you! Well done on your A*!
