General Discussion / GCSE national average?
« Last post by Evlinda on August 25, 2016, 04:24:24 PM »
Hi
Hope everyone's results were ok!
Does anyone have the national average for girls for GCSE? I can only find the overall.

Thanks!

Map the new specs to your current one and see which has the most overlaps. As a one person department this will reduce planning and increase tweaking of existing content. Easier to deal with! Unless you hated your existing specs content!
We went with AQA because we liked the content and it suited our girls to have a pre-release and skills paper. We've historically done well on those.

Indeed, I remember many of these SLN names and best of luck on a personal level.

But I also recall how many of the same people denigrated the 'Waugh-isation' of geography with chunky big expensive textbooks ( that soon turn into weighty fossils but remain in use because of their expense so holding back innovation) and saw the SLN 'community' as something of a grassroots antidote to the sort of establishment geography typified by content-heavy textbooks which most schools, in any case, can't afford.

I hope that it is still permissible to post provocatively here - I feel that Chris Durbin would have thought so back in the early 2000s.

Nothing much has changed. Those years ago calling for radical change now have the jobs and status that they perhaps always wanted all the time. But best of luck all the same.
