    How do all,

    I wonder what the rest of us thought of today's paper? Personally I thought my kids appreciated it.Very clear from the examiners report what the questions would be. Good, too, to see that they had chosen a subject that took something from youth culture, rather than last year's appeal to social-historic cultural capital.

    As with the other poster today, it's frustrating when kids make silly errors; I guess, though, that you hope that the examiner will take into account their entire portfolio. That is, if the same examiner marks all their pieces...?

  2. paper 1 and 2 are marked by different examiners

    For legacy, scripts will still be marked whole by the same examiner. Not so for new spec.

    Wasn't the November paper about skateboarding Australians in Afghanistan? Seems that extreme sports are the current fad in exam papers.
    Most of ours seemed quite pleased with it, in general.
