You know, I never had to take the OSCE exams (I moved back to America for high school), but this post was just so interesting! Thanks for writing out so much detail. :)


I had no idea. I'm exhausted just having read that post. Thanks for the insider's peek.

This is fascinating stuff - thanks for the insight. Eldest will be embarking on GCSE courses in Sept, so this is all useful to know!

So you'll be missing my son's outpourings on The Lord of the Flies.....

That was fascinating. Thank you.

Interesting post. In the end, I wish we had a similar system over here in California. Our testing has just gotten ridiculous lately. Ridiculous and not very useful.

I hoped, Jane and Juliet, it might be reassuring for parents to read this. As to the differences between here and the US Eva and CB I am not saying our exam system is great over here, not at all, but that the marking for this exam is really quite well run, when, knowing British bureaucracy, this might not necessarily have been the case!

Sorry to wear you out Raych! Welcome to Juxtabook!
