The Exam

1This week’s book recommendation is from Ms Anderson:

The Exam by Andy Hamilton (Writer of the TV shows Outnumbered and Drop the Dead Donkey)

The Exam is a comedic insight into the pressures put on young people by parents and teachers. Andrew, Chas and Bea are three students of mixed ability who find themselves held up in the same exam hall waiting for their papers to arrive. As the wait lengthens, each has to survive a powerful barrage of self doubt, parental pressure and adult incompetence. They must come to terms with themselves, their peers and parents. An enjoyable read which I’m sure all teachers can relate to and sympathise with.
