I suggest you wait til a parents evening and bring it up with a teacher then. That's assuming that you attend your parents evenings along with your parents (which is how my school worked)

yeh, if they give you a good reason as to why you can't be in the top set then don't get demoralised, concentrate on what they've said and then try to get to top set next year (year 10 right?) which is when GCSE's will start for you. And it's important you're in the right set then.

ok, well if this is really getting to you, perhaps you can arrange a meeting with your parents to see a teacher? or get your parents to write a kind-worded letter about it? saying you don't feel as if you're being pushed to your potential.

But presumably not Set 2 for English?

Onlywee's method is not the only solution. Personally, I would prefer to get on working quietly. I'd have nothing to prove in set 6, but I would have everything to gain by working hard and producing results.

Only when you start producing results comparable to set 2 can you make a valid claim to join it. (That is if you're not producing the results already).

i agree. i was just assuming that she was acheiving the grades required by the top set, and felt hard done by. Niomi, if you aren't getting the marks you need, take tek's advice, and just keep at it. In the end streaming is for everyone's good.

If you're refering to But presumably not Set 2 for English? then you should know it's a rhetorical question.

You said i could of been in set 2 [for Science] and I joked that you could not be in set 2 for English owing to your use of the word 'of' when you should have used the verb 'have'.

Hey, people have to learn these things.

As a confessed pedant, I find the misuse of language quite shocking :eek:
