Our mock exam results on Higher Tier AQA for English are really disappointing. My class only had about 6/34 getting C or above. I can see what several of the problem areas are and I don't think we should be entering so many for the higher tier but I am really worrying about the amount of U grades we are looking at. Even with CAs quite a few would be E/F/Gs. Having said that, pupils haven't attempted questions (or sections), haven't written in paragraphs and haven't planned responses. They have clearly not done any revision out of lessons and even then haven't followed the advice or methods we went over in class. It's so frustrating. I just feel like a rubbish teacher. I guess I'm just wondering what other people have done when they have bad mock results (I suspect there are a lot of us out there). The Foundation results are more promising but from lower groups (and when put with current CA marks would go down to D/E/F).
