I support students who are not in school for medical reasons, and a number of my year 11 students (from different schools) are taking linear Maths this week and next. This has left me wondering what to do with them after the exam. Presumably students are entered this early with a view to being able to re-take, but what do schools do with students who have already taken the exam, but presumably still attend lessons? We won't know the result for a while. If you carry on with Maths, and it turns out that the students have already got their C, what happens then? These are all Foundation students, so we're not realistically going to spend a few weeks teaching them trigonometry to take the Higher paper in June. And if you know that they aren't going to get the desired grade the first time, why enter them?
