I prefer to have mine on a Saturday instead of having to go straight from school to an exam with no practice!

Well its the only sitting in the year when it is on a Saturday so I guess it is to give those of us late starters who work full time and anyone else who can't get time off in the week an opportunity to sit it at least once a year

The theory exam is always on a Saturday this term. It means anyone doing GCSEs AS & A levels can also do a theory exam (if they haven't enough to do!!) without it clashing with their other exams.

My teacher told me that in all exams (theory or practical) the examiners are not allowed to give a mark that is on the verge of a pass, merit or distinction i.e. 65, 79 or 89. They supposedly have to mark you up or down but never give a mark that's only 1 away from a P, M or D. This must not be true then....huh.gif

Well I'm glad the theory exam was on a Saturday, it meant I didn't have to take a day off work to sit it !

It's mostly true in practical exams (although a mark ending in 9 can happen very occasionally) but in theory exams it's more of a case that the answer is either right or wrong so they can't really do that so much (except maybe on the composition questions, but generally it's not as important as the marking structure is much more rigid, rather than does this person deserve a merit?).
