How many times have you had a student who insisted on taking an exam for which they were not fully prepared? Here’s an open leter from TEFLGEEK which addresses the impending failure of one such student, and suggests some of the things which could lead to this situation.
You probably know why I’m writing this letter. You probably know, deep down, what I’m about to tell you. But I’m going to tell you anyway and that’s why I’m writing.
You are going to fail your exam. Sorry.
I mean I hope I’m wrong. I hope that on the day, the gods of language learning smile upon you and every word you need arrives at the front of your brain with the minimum of effort. Or that the invigilator accidentally gives you a PET paper instead of and FCE paper and nobody notices. Or that you have a great day and all that preparation and training pays off. Or that a falling star dips past your window the night before the exam and that you make the right wish.
But in all honesty? I can’t see any other way that you are going to pass.
