About to get moved down a maths test after blanking in an examWatch
The teacher saw this and I will be punished for “cheating”, and there is not much hope in gaining her sympathy because I know I just shouldn’t have responded.
I’m going to be moved down a set in maths, and that means I’ll be put a year behind for the GCSE. The issue is I’m finding the current set completely fine and I just gave way to a really bad day at home combined with a really bad day at school, I really wouldn’t like to be put down a class into a class where the teacher is not very good (I’ve had him before) and the students are disruptive.
I’m so gutted, I studied really hard for this.
What do I do? I emailed the teacher but she won’t respond.
im sorry to hear about what happened with you. unfortunately teachers are not always the most understanding.
speak to either your form teacher, head of year or book a talk with a school counsellor or even if you see the headteacher. explain to someone to who knows you well (I.e the form teacher) and if not then someone of a higher position than your maths teacher or even another teacher in the department.
explain your situation fully and i think face to face is better. email and ask for a 1-1 talk with them so they know you are sincere.
lastly, suggest that you are willing to do a mock exam or trial test or sit a mini test at any time in isolation to prove yourself. explain the consistency in your previous marks too.
hoping this help x
