Tiring

Just marked the bio section of the fifth form that sat the science exam. Not many did well - about two of them. There were a few that passed, and an awful lot that didn't pass or come anywhere near it.

Was reading the sixth form bio papers, and a student who thinks she would like to be a vet tells me transport is all about how animals get around (in this case it was meant to be about blood circulation), and that fish grow little legs so they can live on the land... and then in case I didn't understand her text, she drew me a picture of fish with little legs, and labelled the legs. I hope she has a plan B if vet school doesn't take her!

Oh lord. At least she didn't write "Darwin" in the middle of the fish.

Oh, and maybe steer her towards a Vetinary Nurse qualification instead...

I paint a pretty grim picture for any wishing to do physio or vetinary. They don't seem to have an idea of the huge amounts of competition for these courses, hence the huge need for them to work harder.
