Got a D in an economics mock. This is going to be used to make my predicted grade. I got AA in my other subjects. I don’t know what to do, because i know my predicted is going to be low. Will I need to take a gap year?

Hey Anita, I hope this finds you well. Mock exams are a part of a holistic whole when teachers are formulating your predicted grades. If you feel that your mock grades are not reflective of what you are capable of, as are the cases in mocks more often than not, I would encourage you to have a conversation with your teachers. Be proactive in showing that you are seeking to improve and will be abl... more

The relationship between assessment, teaching, and learning

Assessment also takes place after lessons where you assess how the lesson went and perhaps factors of the lesson that you need to change. Also, you use assessment to inform future lessons, where the results of a test for example could highlight whe... more

Given equation for the circle to be X²+Y²=25 find the contact points given the slope of tangent to be ¾

So we have our equation x^2 +y^2 =25. We want to find the points of intersection with tangents of slope 3/4. These will be given by lines of the equation: y=3/4 x + C. We first need to find possible values of C. As a tangent will only intersect with the circle at 1 point, when we substitute the equation of our tangent into that of our circle we know the discriminant must equal 0. Substituting in w... more

Transfer of learning among learner

Transfer of learning occurs when the student is motivated by the topic, motivated to learn, has previous knowledge on the subject, and knows how to connect new information to existing information. The learner must then be able to retrieve this information and apply it to new learning. A lot of breaks can happen in this chain, but if we model this formula in our teaching and make it a conscious pro... more

Is a GCSE in art required for studying architecture and engineering? What A levels would be needed?

Hi Sarah! I am currently studying architecture and did not take Art at GCSE or A-level so there is no need to worry if you haven't. It varies between universities and specialised degrees, however the general consensus is mathematics is a good foundation to lead with. However, I would recommend that you develop an independent portfolio of your works to show your basic artistic abilities. The requir... more

Strengths and weaknesses of rubrics as assessment tool

Stenghts: -Measure learning outcomes based on clear metrics -Ensures all evaluators use the same criteria -It can be very comprehensive Weaknesses: -Unflexible -If evaluating transferable skills, it might be dependant on the evaluator's judgement -If not well designed, it might miss important aspects to evaluate of the student

Asked by AJZ

If I have past experience in a subject (for example GCSE level) but I don't do that subject during my A levels can I something related to that subject in university or will I be too inexperienced?

What is your subject and target? Should not be an issue although you have to look and analyse holistically and long term....
