    Thanks for all your responses.

    I am really concerned that the school expect the children to take this exam early.
    Ds is thinking I'd a career in haematology and I believe that he should be taught the curriculum fully before any exams take place.
    The school has been a farce from day one. They push the kids through, he took Spanish gcse at the end of yr 9 got a D, apparently was a few marks away from a C, the teacher talked him into re doing it the following year although he wasn't have Spanish lessons but the teacher did offer an after school club after school on a Monday.
    History was taken in June (yr 10) along with the Spansish, English lit (that no one knew was being taken til the exam list came through!) science foundation level.
    The history grade was a D again a few points away from the C, the teacher wanted ds to retake but we said no, teacher was not happy at all. I said tough! If he wants to do haematology then he needs to concentrate on his sciences, English and maths, without the pressure of another exam.
    The Spansih he did was a 2 year course that was condensed into 1 year which actually turned into 9 months as the exam was early may!

    My husband and I have been talking and I am going to speak to the head teacher tomorrow about ds not taking the exam early as like the general opinion we believe it's more damaging than helpful.

    Again thank you for taking the time to respond x
