Progress Exams

Progress exams are an excellent opportunity to demonstrate the knowledge and skills students have developed.
It is an excellent time for students to organise a large section of revision notes ready for the summer exams and to learn key facts/skills needed. This revision and practice will help massively in preparing for May and June, a large percentage of information will be much easier to recall /revise the second time around.

We expect students to revise for a minimum of 1.5 hours each evening at the moment.

Two subjects each evening, 45 minutes on each.  (If they have attended an after-school session this would mean a commitment to only one at home).

Students are advised to use a 4 part rota, so that their revision programme is quick to organise.

FOR EXAMPLE:
Monday: Science-Option 1
Tuesday: English Literature- option 2
Wednesday: RE-option 3
Thursday: Welsh- Science 2
Saturday and Sunday: 1, 2, 3 and 4 minimum

Closer to the exam students should focus more on a subject each night, but they cannot afford to wait until that evening before as there is too much to cram in and practice.
