Thanks so much for your ideas!! I shall be using that very soon. Just trying to get the timid ones out of their shell and speak out. Sometimes they speak out loads in class but once they're in the exam that's it they freeze. Unfortunately I would love to say that I am so dedicated to the job but no... I didn't wake up in the middle of the night to write that!! I live in Singapore so hence the time difference!! Hope you're having a great Easter holiday!! We use edexcel and being able to answer the "easily guessable questions" plays a big part in their results from what I've been told (maybe they don't lose all their marks but they lose a lot for not being able to answer). I used to work with AQA and it sounds great that the students aren't penalised for not answering the unpredictables. Clocking out at 11.03am!
