  1. And I am guessing that was the last idea the group came up with (as it is at the bottom of the page). Did you have to eek that point out of the group or did they come up with it, as I find Fear of Failure is a huge obstacle and can contribute to a lot of anxiety around exam times.

  2. Actually, that one I added towards the end of the discussion. It prompted a frank exchange about the nature of their learning at GCSE in comparison with the expectations placed on them at A-Level and beyond.
