Last year quite a few of our Year 12 achieved Us at AS, despite monitoring and contacting parents etc. I'm not bothered by pressure from SMT to eradicate any failure, but I do feel anxious that there could have been something else we could have done. I am planning on speaking to those Us to see if there is anything extra we could have done, or done differently. Currently we take all three units in the Summer, so one idea is to take C1 in January. Would this be an early wake up call, or would it just be an exam to resit in the summer? One point that particularly affects us is that we take the GCSE Maths exam in the November of Year 11. We then rattle through GCSE Statistics by the summer. This means that pupils would not have done the algebra bit for nearly a year by the time they start AS.So maybe we should do a course that helps their algebra. I have heard of Additional Maths / FSMQ but I don't know how hard it would be, and would it put off some of the successful pupils, even though it may be excellent preparation for those doing Further Maths. Any hands on feedback would be great. We don't want to start C1 because we have heard that some unis look down upon a 3 year Alevel. And this might also cause some issue with pupils joining from different schools. So in a nutshell. Any ideas to stop U's at AS? Any one got any feedback on Additional Maths (or anything else)? I've got a parents evening and a dentist appt, so I won't be looking at this for a few days, but thanks in advance!
