Things are not quite going to plan. Instead of pushing the kids to hit their targets for this year we’ve decided to ease off.
Frankly, it’d be an uphill struggle that would likely end with bad grades and/or demoralised and overworked kids.
Sabeen, 9, isn’t going to do her A-level Mathematics this year – her little brain is struggling to understand the concepts. So she’ll now be looking to do it next year, possibly with IGCSE Physics and French. It means she’ll have way more time for friends, hobbies, interests over the next few months to a year.
Danyal, 11, is going to have to work hard to do well in his A-level Mathematics and Further Mathematics, but he can do it. After that he’s done with studying completely, as long as his grades are good.
Maryam, 13, will no longer do A-level Further Mathematics – she will instead just go for Mathematics which she should find fairly easy. Like Danyal, after this she’s done with studying, subject to a good grade.
It’s exciting. The two older kids are really looking forward to getting on with their lives and not having to study any more…
