I am wondering what CATS and 11+ means and what it says about your ability...
I did extremely well on the 11+ (3 away from full marks) and I did CATs in Year 7 and Year 10 which must have been good as I am target all A's and A*'s for GCSE..
Some teachers rely heavily on these - two grades below your target grade you have to resit; whereas a few say to ignore them. I am wondering what do they show about your intelligence?
I did no work through GCSE e.g. science I get D's on topic tests from no revision, whereas others who do less revision than me still get A*.
I do have learning problems which makes me extremely disorganised and unfocused.. so I am wondering if I applied myself, did my homework and revised would it ever be possible to achieve these grades? I am so unmotivated from all my fail grades.
