    The grade boundaries should be released for every board by 8am on the Wednesday morning before results day bar WJEC I think who only release them on results day.Although, some boards will release them late Tuesday evening/Wednesday morning.

    My school's awards evening is the worst! I've been a couple of times because it's for the whole school as our form teachers give "form prizes" to one boy and one girl in the form. They aren't based on anything whatsoever, in fact I was told to suggest the next winner after I won it the first time. We got given a pen and a keyring... Yeah, they really know how to please us. Oh and last year, because it was the Olympics, they got a clock! Yeah. A clock. It had a picture of three of our school's "famous" athletes which didn't really seem relevant at all. The only one anyone might have vaguely recognised was Rob Bale, a swimmer who competed in the relay in the Olympics. The people who got them were a bit miffed especially considering the fact most of the awards weren't for sporting achievements.

    As for the GCSE awards, they only give them to the highest achieving boy and girl. So last year, the girl who got the best GCSEs (11 A*s) went to this evening and got a £20 voucher. Could be worse, I guess. OH WAIT, it was worse, because it was a voucher which could only spent in the educational book and stationary section of WHSmith! It's ridiculous.

    We just have to pick up the actual GCSE certificates from our school's main reception desk sometime in September I think. It's incredibly uneventful.

    I've got loads of summer homework:
    questions and an essay for Spanish
    grammar revision for French
    7 pieces of writing for English language
    questions and an essay for history

    I've also been told that I will have at least an hour a day of each French and Spanish homework, regardless if we have a lesson or not, as well as at least 2 essays a week of history - but I haven't been told what I'll get for English.
    This sounds ridiculous, especially when they don't know for certain you are taking them subjects.It sounds as if the Summer Holidays aren't holidays for you because of your college. I've never ever had any summer homework before.People on here have had so much homework after school that they are pretty much doing a 9-5 job.

    That's how ours should work! Instead, the year after I won it, my form teacher said to me, "So I'm struggling to think of who I should give the prize to this year. Who do you recommend?" I ended up recommending someone who I didn't like because nobody likes going to it! And this year two of the quietest people who didn't do anything whatsoever won it. At least I don't have to have that clock though. :P Other teachers just gave them to the same person year after year because they couldn't be bothered choosing anyone else!

    I like my school. But it really doesn't know what it's doing sometimes. Like I was on the "Senior Prefect" team this year and we did nothing at all other than designing the yearbook which anybody could have done. We had no extra privileges and we didn't have council meetings to suggest school improvements (I have a long four page list of improvements I aim to implement ). Even the Head Boy and Girl only ended up going to about two school council meetings!

    Agh. I could rant for days about this.
