  1. Thank you to everyone for your feedback. It's been a great help to me. For the time being, I think I will continue with free work and not enter any candidates for exams. I haven't given the results to my students yet. I wanted to reflect on the situation and get some feedback from other teachers first. However, I will leave it to each student if they wish to have a result enquiry. On a final note the whole thing has left a very bad taste in my mouth....
  2. Anna C thank you for your message. As a teacher you know roughly where each student falls (distinction, high merit, low merit, pass etc). I don't compare theses students with previous ones. Based on the amount of work (2.5 years, 3 hours a week plus a lot of extra coaching) we did for this exam and yes, taking into consideration they are doing a vocational exam and not a grade, I believe they should have come out with higher marks. I do think it is very important to be objective and reasonable as a teacher. As I mentioned in a previous comment above, I wasn
  3. Thank you everyone for your replies. It's much appreciated. LaCamargo thank you for letting me know. I was watching videos of my students when we did Zoom lessons and then going over every section of their marking, thinking 'am I going crazy here?' Again, under no circumstances I was expecting high distinctions. But after 2.5 years of hard work (they studied three hours a week plus exam coaching) such low merits came as quite a shock! I haven't decided yet either.
  4. Thank you very much for your replies DD Driver. I really appreciate it. Yes, I have seen this video, it's lovey and so inspiring. The exam took place at Headquarters and my students were the 2nd group of the day, so the examiner had seen only one group before them. Unfortunately, as you say mostly likely I will not get another result and the whole process will take so long it will be pointless. I was just wondering if anyone had a similar experience. I think it's very difficult to give an accurate description of the students over the internet. But we spen
  5. Hello dance teachers, I have just received the results from the RAD for a group of Inter. F I entered back in November. Naturally, live classes cannot be replaced by Zoom but I have to say I was very disappointed. I wasn't expecting all students to get high distinctions (especially given the circumstances) but they had 3 zoom classes per week plus all the work we had done before lockdown. I felt they were very well prepared as they were going to do this exam back in March but we went into the first lockdown and they missed it. The results were three low merits and one high merit.
