Ex­ams are tough test for stu­dents

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your Telegraph -


where it’s due... how many of us would rel­ish the prospect of sit­ting down to do a GCSE exam with only two weeks prepa­ra­tion like our two in­trepid ET journos?

John Baker and Matthew Reville are two of the ET’S finest and they pro­duced very cred­itable passes given the fact that they had very lit­tle prepa­ra­tion.

How­ever, what they also proved is that the ex­ams are no pushover – just the op­po­site.

There is of­ten much me­dia com­ment about ris­ing pass rates and ques­tions about just how dif­fi­cult ex­ams re­ally are.

We can con­firm that the ex­ams are a real test and they are far from easy.

Thou­sands of lo­cal young­sters are sit­ting down to do their ex­ams at this time of year.

The ma­jor­ity have worked very hard in prepa­ra­tion and will work ex­tremely hard over the next few weeks along with their teach­ers and sup­port staff.

We can con­firm the ex­ams are not easy and all our stu­dents de­serve ev­ery­one’s full sup­port at this test­ing time.

And when they get their re­sults they will have earned them and we’ll make sure they get the credit they de­serve.
