Whatever your motivation is, the brutal truth is the exams aren’t going away - so you might as well tackle them head on...and win! You can do this. You really can. Everyone at school and at home will support you. But you need to take on this challenge now! Use our revision booklet to help you get started, make a plan and finish with a successful exam result.

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.
