We were very pleased with the results of the exams in the summer.
Jacqueline got an A in English Language IGCSE and a B in English Literature IGCSE. This is taking them just as she has turned 15. We were particularly pleased with the English Literature because we have not done that subject before.
Stephanie did well in her AS exams. She got Maths (A), Psychology (A), Chemistry (B), Biology (D) and Anthropology (C).
She was not particularly bothered about Anthropology as the course has not turned out to be as interesting as she had hoped and expected. With the Biology, she had a very poor teacher and spent a lot of the year making posters and playing games!
At the moment she us continuing with 3 A2 subjects in college and taking the fourth one at home, although we are working on getting that changed. After a conversation with the College, she is now taking all 4 subjects in College.
Greg got an A* in his GCSE Chemistry, which he did at night school. That has been a bug bear since he was at school at his school did not offer the facilities for pupils to take both Physics and Chemistry at O-Level, so he choose Physics at the time.
In the LAMDA exams, Jacqueline got another Grade 6 pass and now has 150 UCAS points. Stephanie got 2 x Merits in her Grade 7 LAMDA. In combination with her AS results, she now has 520 UCAS points.
Stephanie is now going into her second year of A-Levels, Jacqueline has another year at home and we will be taking a few more IGCSEs over the next 12 months and then she is off to College.
Well done everyone. We are all really pleased with the results.
We are now back into all the other activities – Brownies, Rainbows, Duke of Edinburgh Award, Rangers, Riding, Speech and Drama and Stephanie has started freestyle disco dancing, as well as going to the gym. Busy times ahead!
