my son is in year 11 at a grammar school with GCSEs coming up soon. How do I get him to understand the importance of these exams? Hes doing OK but is now having to attend "catch up" sessions as hes not achieving his full potential. Am a bit annoyed that although in certain subjects I have been flagging this for the past couple of years, something is only being done now to make sure he doesnt "spoil" their results (98%) Dont get me wrong hes not some awful kid whio doesnt give a toss but I dont think he appreciates the importance and wonder if you have any tips or advice. Thanks.
