Hi there, Following the news that GCSE grades have dropped for the first time, obvious finger pointing has started. Not having children, I have no first hand experience of GCSEs other than being the first year to take them way back when... So, the marking schemes have been changed. Surely this shouldn't matter if the pupils were taught the subject rather than being coached how to pass an exam. If you know the topic, you would get a good grade. If you were taught how to answer according to a known marking scheme, then that isn't learning in my view. Do the teachers have a point about the way the exams have been marked or has their teaching to pass an exam caught them and their pupils out?
