Well I think this is going to cause alot of debate between teaching unions and Mr.Gove. I'm kinda glad im doing my GCSE's now I think i prefer what im doing.

I'm glad, even thoough it doesn't effect me, i thought it was stupid to change everyhitn like that, gcse's are fine as they are

do you know if the a level changes are still going ahead?

I think it is. I looked it up and it still seems to be happening, but i suppose they could always change their minds as they have done with the GCSEs.

I would like them to change to summer only exams for alevel, cause i hate january exams, but i'd like to still be able to resit if i need it.

i don't mind january exams cause it gets some out of the way, but definately still keep resits.

Yeah i like knowing that i have a resit as a back up in case the exam didn't go so well. the government forget that not everyone has a good day everyday - and it might be that you have a bad day on an exam day, and then you don't get a second chance. that's unfair. if you feel ill or something then you should get the chance to resit. it's our future that they're messing with and they don't seem to consider us when making decisions.

I Know its always like that with desicions involving us, if you feel ill you can't help it and you should get a chance to resit

Exactly, then later in life you sit in a job interview with grades you hate because you weren't having a great day although I suppose it makes sence because everbody else would tell them what was coming up in the exam and i suppose thay would find it difficult to organise another date for it but ye i see what you mean it can be really fustrating.
