Hi Grades 10 - 12!! I suppose you are thinking we are picky when we grade your work. You are probably correct. However, it gets more challenging when you leave us. Check out this rubric from Kings College in London. It covers oral and written examinations, reports, and essays. Notice that a good student earns 60s! It is not easy out there, and we challenge you so that you will achieve success after your time with us. I have uploaded their rubric as a PDF file. I did not create it nor will I take credit for it in any way. I do admire its merits, and like its structure however. This is why it is important that you practice your writing at every opportunity we give you, and make it count. This is for real, and you can find it at
Happy reading :) Mr. N.
