    Hello Everyone!

    Ok now this sounds really stupid but its playing on my mind quite badly. Do teachers check over the exam papers before they are sent to the exam board? You no - to check everyone has put there candidate numbers on and names e.t.c. Random question really...

    i doubt teachers will but i'm sure your examination co-ordinator has to check they are in the correct order to be sent off and theyll prob notice if something is missing when they do that

    I think they check if people have put candidate numbers on. My school does it via computer.

    I think they look through to make sure all the papers are there in alphabetical ordeer. Im slightly worried because the first name which I use is very different to my actuall first name but I wrote the nicname on the exams. I dont think itll matter (everything else is the same) but Im slightly worried.

    youd better get out of that habit, as you may end up not recieveing any results at all, if you do not put your full name of your exam paper.
    not to scare you or anything

    I agree - its more of a challenge to get A*s and As from a regular school, universities and employers will recognise that - everyone at private school does well, so its not specialto get As and A*s - my parents gave me the choice, so i stayed at my nice mixed sex normal school with not-so-good reputation, its more of a challenge and I don't end up socially stunted because I haven't had any contact with girls...

    I disagree with you. Background education has minimal effect on your intelligence and ability (or inability) to effectively prepare for exams. Yes, private schools (on average) have better results, but IMO it is because the students want to do well, more so than most state school pupils. Just my opinion, bash it all you want.

    I don't think it really matters about not putting your actual real name on the paper because you're putting your candidate number on as well which gives the information about you to the exam board anyway. It just means more time spent for them!

    I don't think universities really care where you went as long as you get good grades. With private education, you generally get better teachers, smaller classes, better resources and stuff like that. I must admit some of the dead expensive 10 grand a year schools are a bit ridculous, but most people would say normal independent schools provide a better education. I'm not saying anything bad against state schools here - and most state schools do get very good grades and a lot of my friends go to state schools. Oh and btw - most private schools are mixed now, so we are not all 'socially stunted' or whatever!

    I think background education does have an effect to some extent on your ability to get good results; private schools generally have better resources and certainly the ones near me have significantly smaller classes....but i think that the difference in education primarily affects those who wouldn't be motivated enough to work to achieve C grades or above without extra input and better facilities.....those who are achieving As and A*s are generally motivated enough to do well on their own initiative, and therefore i would agree that private schooling is not fundamental in enabling you to prepare for exams......personally, i think that, as a generalisation, it is the amount of parental input that defines someone's ability to do well...having done a case study in my own home!
