100% ICT Fails @ H*mphry D*vy Scho*l P*nzance

We recently received our GCSE ICT exam results and were disappointed to find every student, including myself, had failed, 'achieving' E's or below. It could be due to the standard of teaching but the low results are apparently widespread. What's going on at AQA? Is it fair if we have to take those dreadful exams again? Anyone else do as badly?

Any reason for the *'s?
I haven't heard anything particularly wrong with these papers.
There is a problem with ICT teachers in general though, as half of them seem to be incompetant in teaching the subject.

I thought the *s would completely conceil the school in question and therefore not cause any trouble at my end.

The teachers insist the fault is with the exam board. I'm not so sure. What can I do?

If you are sure that you have done better, you can request the papers be remarked.
But if you think the error is with the teaching, you can make a formal complaint to the school.

Well a good idea might be to start a thread here to see who passed. If the majority here passed then its most probably some sort of teaching problem at this school, and you could make a complaint and use the thread here as evidence. Are there any stats released nationaly about module pass rates for GCSE?

i doubt it would be very representative as the majority of people on this site are straight A students.

only *'ing out vowels makes it pretty obvious what school it is

At my college in our first year, the IT teacher was an idiot and didn't teach people enough or even set the right coursework, so everyone failed. Then he had the cheek to try and say the students on the course didn't do enough work, until he was found out as being useless.

It was like this in my first year at college too so we signed a petition organised by myself and we got her transfered to another college. Teaching standards improved dramaticaly after that. There are more dodogy ICT teachers than any other subject I think.
