15 year old has exams in may-nightmare to get him to study! would rather be out on his bmx or on the xbox. Have offered him an iphone if he gets A or B passes for them all-bribery is the only thing that works with him!

mine is already way past 16, one of the older ones, so she a bit more mature, she knows what she wants and knows the extra hard work will get her the results she wants, but it dont stop her being continually knackered, she already has some behind her now, so seeing the light at the end of the tunnel so to speak, she cant wait to leave school

I guess they cant all be the same sassie-Our oldest(25 now) got 6 A passes in his highers and a masters degree in engineering,with no prompting or pushing from us-he just decided one day to get his head down and do it.

17 year old hated school,left after gcses and went to college to do software development and is thriving in the college environment whereas he was a walking disaster at school.

15 year old is very clever,but doesnt want to study-thinks he can just sit the exams and pass without revising which will be a disaster for him.

13 year old girl-flies through all her school exams at 90 percent plus with NO studying,no revising etc.

I did not do well at school,absolutely hated it,but still turned out ok in the end-as long as they are happy and healthy,thats the most important thing-with 5 children,I know they arent all gonna be rocket scientists,but its hard not to worry about their future if they dont do well.

that is my daughter, or shall i say was, the last year she has realised they are really important for her and she wants to do well in life, well she always wanted that, but i mean she realised without a bit of extra work she may not come out with what she wants, she is already sitting one part of an exam she took last year so she can come out with an A instead of a B

yes, i think my daughter is going to as well, she is going on to do A levels and have tried to tell her that A level is so much harder and alot more work than GCSE, but its what she wants to do, i just hope she will stick it

aarrgghh sore subject in our house.have a 14 yr old son in yr 9.he sat 1 gcse last year and has got 9 more in 2 weeks.he needs to be surgically removed from his xbox,and its caused no end of arguments.if i leave it in his room he plays on it all the time.if i take it away he says he wont revise.
he thinks he can just coast through coz hes naturally bright,but doesnt realize the importance of getting the best grades he can.the trouble is in sitting some age 14 is that he knows he will have the option to retake any when hes 16.he reckons he doesnt need 20 gcses so whats the point
on the flip side though he is only 14 so should he really be sitting exams now instead of out playing(coz hes obviously not mentally mature enough to deal with them.)
phew rant over

Yes I have a stroppy 16 year old daughter who is stuying hard - think she's now realising its a bit more harder in 5th year than previous years hence the stroppiness.

another shed load more gcses or nvq or btec,depends if he can decide what he wants to do.
at his school they start the brighter ones off early(i suppose its only to boost the overall grades of the school) at the end of year 9 he will have 10 gcses already.

wish they had done that at my daughters, although i thought there was only a ccertain amount they could take in mainstream, as for subjects being taught, is yours at a private school

no its not private.he is sitting a lot of higher papers too so a lot of pressure.trouble is i cant expect him to show an interest when i find it hard to understand myself !!! i suppose the thought is that instead of some of the children failing certain exams they could have time to have another shot at it.it gives the children a chance to specialize too if they know what they want to do.
my boy doesnt see the point yet coz he has no clue what he wants to do,and he knows hes not going to need 20 gcses.thats why the system has gone wrong for him,coz he reckons he can fail a few and it doesnt matter.(hope he doesnt tho)

yes i can totally understand that, i think 14 is very young to know what you want to do, mine is 16 and a half and only really just decided what she wants to do

Well done to your son, he must be bright for them to allow him to do them so soon.
That happened when i was at school, the brigher ones did theirs in year (only a couple though) however it was the ones who wanted to learn. Maybe they have pushed your son too hard?

Like someone else has said though, their son is getting a big big treat if he passes. Could you do that? Obviously i don't know your financial circumstances but if something could be waiting at the other end would that help him?

Its his future and although he doesn't see it now i am sure they will do him well in the future.
