I forgot to say, because I’m so excited, that he got 98% in Chemistry and 100% in Biology!

    Fantastic! I thought those percentage results were mythical!

    So what did he do wrong in the Chemistry? (only kidding – those results are splendiferous)

      Thanks. I also forgot to mention that these were the higher tier exams.

      I daren’t write another PS – even I don’t boast that much about my children 🙂

    Now hang on… NO ONE gets 100%! Which one of you knew the examiner? 😉

    seriously – that’s incredible. What a star!

    Hi Tilly, Somehow, I got tangled up and had a bad link to your blog, so I lost a few good ones. Sigh. I am finally back and catching up. Congratulations on the super bright boy. Is your 10th grade comparable to 10th grade in the States? He looks like he did not want his photo taken. How typical. Have a good day.

    PS, I think I am connected now!!

      Hooray! Glad you made it 🙂

      I think it might be ninth. Spud is 15; next year he will take more GCSEs and then can leave school if he wants to, or stay on into the Sixth form and do A levels over two years, which he will need to enter university at eighteen.

    I don’t understand about your GCSE’s, Sixth forms, A levels, etc. What I do know is that those are terrific marks and he sounds like a dedicated student. Congrats to him and you and the hub!

      Thanks, Big Al 🙂

      Last 2-4 years of school (last two optional):

      Year 10 (Age 15) – some GCSE modules (count towards final GCSE grades the following year)
      Year 11 (16) – most GCSEs, about ten subjects, at least two papers for each
      Year 12 (Age 17, Sixth Form, because high school used to be years 1 – 5) – AS Levels, count towards final A Level grades the following year, or stand alone
      Year (18, not sure what they call it now; used to be Upper Sixth) – A Levels

      Clear now?

      😀 😀 😀


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
