    What always surprised me is that here in Poland. State schools are a lot better than the ones you have to pay for. And I mean A LOT! In my state school in Warsaw, Poland. 10 people got offer for Oxbridge and even more more for Edinburgh, Bristol, LSE etc.

    Maybe with such a ban you could repair the state education in UK :O But it's just my opinion

    No. You should know at 8am on Results Day. Definitely not before.

    So I've managed to keep my mind off of results by keeping busy for the last few weeks, but now I have an empty week... any ideas to stop me spiralling into a bottomless pit of despair?

    Watch a TV show called 'Versailles'. It's very good, though a bit OTT on the raunchiness

    Why not first fix the laughable state of comprehensive schools, and then make schools for people lucky enough to get into them?

    They should also fix Ofsted criteria - teachers who are outstanding in my school were given 'good' ratings because of silly things like the quality of their marking, which is insignificant in subjects like maths anyway :-/ As a result, my school spent more time concentrating on us doing things like PSHE and responding to teachers' comments instead of using the time to revise, just to please Ofsted.

    On a serious note I think reports can affect a schools funding(?) or can cause an Academy to lose its status, so it makes sense that they brown nose them for a bit

    Yeah they seem to prioritise relatively insignificant criteria when lots of subjects require many different skills. All students shouldn't be lumped under one style of learning either :-/
