    Hi there,

    as at school I am finding many of my science classes easy and getting high levels then may I ask how and is it possible to be moved up a set ?

    Also, is there a thing that teachers do before moving up a set ?

    Thanks for any info

    I'm guessing you need to achieve consistantly high grades (better than everyone else in your class) and you should probably ask the teacher if they think you should go up a set.

    Don't say "i want to go up a set", ask them nicely whether they think you could move up a set, and if not what you could do in order to do so.

    I don't actually have any experiance though, i never moved sets.

    I'm sure this will vary greatly from school to school. I don't know your situation, but it's possible your teachers feel that although you can cope well with what you're doing now, moving up to the next set would just be a bit much for you. Like I said, I don't know, but thats a possible explanation for why you havent been moved up.

    It depends on exactly how good you are doing right now. Are you getting way higher than most of the people in the class? In any case, I think you should ask your teacher directly - not in an obnoxious way, just asking whether the next set up would be too much for you or not.

    yes but the thing is that it is a intervention class ( for people who should have got higher grades than predicted ) so does that change anything ? :rolleyes:

    Also, the teacher is very strick so im not sure about asking :eek:

    No idea sorry, my teachers asked or told me that I was being moved up. They don't tell you if you are moved down at the end of year you just end up there

    I'm not entirely sure how intervention classes work as I've never heard of them, but even though your teacher is strict, he/she should be more than willing to discuss your progress with you if you ask nicely. Just explain that you're finding a lot of the work quite easy and feel you would benefit from the challenge of going up a set; that way, even if you don't get moved upm your teacher might be able to arrange some extension work for you so you don't get bored.

    Teachers generally like students who take initiative and interest in the work. Just don't say, "Oh, I'm brilliant and everyone else in my set is stupid."

    also, the thing is that they put us into the Intervention class to get back on track so would this affect chances of moving sets. There are very intelligent people who didnt do as good as predicted in yr7 sats but there are also not as intelligent people.

    There isn't much of a difference between sets. Apparently the higher sets move through work quicker; whether this is true or not I couldn't comment on.

    i dont no if this helps but i was in set 1 for maths, in year 7 & 8 then i got moved down to set 2 for year 9 and 10, i was constantly getting way above what every1 else got in tests and i was able to talk all thru the lesson and still know what was going on. my teacher noticed but didnt really do anything about it, in the end i just said look miss i really want to move up and then i moved up in the begining of year 11 and was in the top 5 in set 1.. so if you think your doing better than every1 i would just say something. if they dont move you up then fair enough but if they do it will be worth the asking.

    Start talking to your teachers more about the work you've been covering. Better yet, spark up conversations with them about extra work you've been doing in your free-time. Basically just show you're capable and willing to progress with the work.

    Work very hard, get top of the class in all tests etc., keep your head down and don't mess about, be really nice to the teacher.
    And I think it's really sweet that people worry about sets....ah, I remember them....
