    The thing you said about state schools and Cs is so true. As long as people get 5 As-Cs they dont seem to really care.
    The amount of help people who are in danger of not getting the 5 GCSEs get so much more help and resources than the rest of us.
    True, and what they don't realise is that we're up against people with about 10+ GCSE's at B<. Its annoying to see them get help from teachers and then treat them like absolute ****

    That is so true! They're taken on trips and kept happy, taken on residentials just so they commit to getting a C. :/ but thankfully, we also have streaming in our school so the top set classes are allowed access to A-A* content.

    I don't really have a problem with sets because everyone has similar abilities, but when it comes to classes with mixed abilities such as history we only really focus on getting Cs, the teacher doesn't push us to get A - A*s.

    Not being rude to my friends, but those who are C grade in my class don't ever pay attention so our amazing teacher teaches us ... And when we're set a task, he goes over to them. You should talk to your teacher if you feel you're not being given access to higher level content.

    That's what happened to the science and History department last year. We lost *counts* .. 6 or 7 amazing science teachers last year... Science department is now poopy and consists of newly graduated teachers.
