    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

    It is possible to get moved up a set. Just ask your teacher and see if she thinks you're ready/good enough, and see what he/she says.

    It took me up to year 9 to finally get moved up.

    Hmm, it probably just depends on your school... we had Maths sets since Year 7, English, science & language sets since Year 8.

    I was very good at maths but i never got moved up because of behaviour in lessons, maybe that could be the reason?

    Well you have to show the teacher you are interested,for exaple always be enthusiastic to raise your hand when a teacher asks a question. Another thing is that your behaviour has to be good in order to move up.

    The only way is to get top marks in your set in your exams. I started out year 9 in maths set 3 out of 4. By year 11 I moved up to set 1 and beat the average there so it’s not that hard, although I kinda missed intellectually destroying the rest of the class back in the set 3 days lol

    Sorry, I should have realised. It was on the home page so I assumed it was a new thread, I guess I should have checked the dates of the posts, won’t happen again

    Just work hard and ace your exams, at my school the sets were decided purely from test results so not sure about how your school does it but just work hard and stay determined to move up, I’m sure you’ll get there

    Tbh sets don’t matter, I was in the third set and I got an A* so it doesn’t determine what you’re actually capable of, just how consistently you work throughout the year.
