What if I told you… you are allowed internet access during your exam?

As the title asks… what would you say? Well, believe it or not this may very well become a reality, at least according to OCR exam board chief Mark Dawe based on his comments on a BBC Radio 4 programme – http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-32531820.

SATs… GCSEs… do they really matter?

The age old question of whether these ‘earlier’ examinations really do have an influence on the outcome is one I’m still not sure I have an answer to.

Side effects of stress

I admittedly suffer badly from stress & anxiety. My friends always tell me that they always try to stay away from me when they notice I’m angry & under pressure (which tends to happen a lot when deadlines are lurking). However, It’s not something I like to hear. I laugh and smile about it and […]
