How can I be entered into a higher tier exam?Watch
In the summer 2020 exams I was entered in a foundation tier for combined science. I can not get above grade 5 in that, and I wish to get a higher grade. For that I need to be entered as a higher tier student and my school won't do that. They say that if I go to another exam centre, they too may not enter me in the higher tier. How could I enter as a higher tier student?
-PROVE yourself in MOCK examinations!
-PROVE yourself in homework tasks (be extra with them and do them in the best of your ability)
-Get your parents into the school for a meeting with your science teacher and come to an agreement about your tier. Say you’re willing to work hard and prove yourself and have your parents back you up too. *i recommend this*
-Maybe write your teacher a letter! Let them know how you’re feeling and how much you want this.
-Maybe say you want a career in health (even if you don’t want to), your teacher may feel obligated to put you on higher not to limit your dreams.
-The last resort is... Cry. (I cried on the last day of school over all the stress of exams being cancelled and my grades being affected. He caved. And put me on higher). 😭
Try your best and don’t give up on persuading your teacher!
