Further mathematicians and STEP

Discussion in 'Mathematics' started by stueytunes, Jun 15, 2011.

  1. I might have forgotten something here but does anyone know why the scheduling of upper mathematics examinations is so daft this year? eg for Edexcel combined with a STEP entry
    Monday C4S3 STEP II
    Wed FP1M4 STEP III
    Thu FP2S4
    Fri STEP I FP3 M5
    Clearly I am not suggesting students will sit all of these (but, for instance, one of mine is doing FP2 3 M4 STEP I and II). For the best student this could be a very heavy week even without all the physics etc being sat as well. The FP papers are very bunched. Plus it seems silly to have the STEP papers before the standard ones. A pause for breath before moving up to the STEP challenge surely is the best idea?

    Let's add to the list. Why schedule C4 a week before C3?
     
  3. Wow, that's nuts. Which board? Edexcel is tomorrow for C3 and M3.
