OCR. You have to love them. Anyone familiar with their tasks this year and the struggles of pupils and teachers across the land this year, will love today's tes article here: http://www.tes.co.uk/article.aspx?storycode=6092117 And their response: "An OCR spokesperson said: “There is no statistical evidence that the tasks are inappropriately difficult." I wonder what evidence of a statistical nature they were thinking of? The same old ocr, doing the same old thing, just like project 1a and project 2 in the old gcse. Someone needs to explain to them that holding your hands up and saying 'we got it wrong' might be a better way forward than always denying everything, especially when the anecdotal evidence is overwhelming.
