Just fed up. Love A level teaching, kids usually love my lessons. So, so tired of what seems like yearly battles over marks with exam boards and gambling large chunks of a miniscule budget on questioning thier decisons, tired of syllabuses that cram so much in that all the joy of the content is gone. Lower school is more tiring on a day to day basis and yes, I've had the same grade battles at GCSE with more than one board... but... GCSE doesn't keep me awake at night. Much as I want everyone to do well lives are not massively impacted by not getting a predicted grade at GCSE in the same way as they are at A level. As we all are I'm fed up with endless bloody target setting but ultimately I don't give a **** about CVA and the SLT view of it - I care about individual kids and when I see them potentially losing university places because in my course they have not gained their grades I am up at 5am worrying about it, normal? Don't know. Do know I don't want to go through another year of this. Seriously wondering about looking for job in 11-16 where this isn't an issue. Anyone else been there and done that would be most interested to hear.
