    True. At their age I had no idea what half the terms meant
    I mean I've turned out all right academically so it's not really all that necessary
    Sigh the government's trying to beat other countries academically.
    I'm in year 12 with an A in GCSE English and i have no idea what any of the terms mean, you don't need to know the names for GCSE English, maybe for literature but even so, I got an A without using any of them.

    Let's be honest, if you learnt this sort of thing in lessons at school you'd know it and it'd be easier, it's the fact that this knowledge is unneeded and stupid that gets me.

    Yeah. It's mainly because so many children are flying through their SATs so they need it to be unnecessarily harder so they can see the different abilities more clearly. Thank goodness it wasn't like that when I was sitting it.

    Even so, i think this would still be easy if you learnt it in lessons at school like they do, it's not exactly difficult after practise

    I remember subordinate clauses (struggled with them all the time) but never heard of subordinating prepositions or relative clauses etc....

    Let's be realistic who actually needs subordinating prepositions or relative clauses etc? I am in year 11 and never heard of most of the stuff in that quiz got 4/10 and I am predicted an A in GCSE English. I feel all this unnecessary learning just builds up pressure on 10/11-year-olds which is absolutely unnecessary.

    I managed to fail most of them and I am year 11 a grade A student in GCSE English . The sats papers are ridiculously hard for 11-year-old kids.
    Theyre not really because they will be taught about them.

    That said, what a load of sh-it. Subordinating conjuncture refuncture paradonjonial adjectives my arse
