Reduce/Simplify... Explode back... TEST!

We encourage students to strive for 45-minute revision block before a break.
2x45 minutes each school evening
4-6 blocks of 45 minutes each weekend or non-school day

Flashcards:
Some people love using flashcards to revise. Either write them out and organise like the image to the left or there are even digital options available to download now - like Anki.

Exam Support

Exams can be a challenging time for many young people.
It can be difficult to know what to do if your child is feeling worried or stressed about exams, but there are lots of ways you can help support them. The leaflet above offers some information about how to spot your child may be struggling, and some practical tips on how to support them during their exams.

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

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
Tuesday: English Literature
Wednesday: RE
Thursday: Welsh
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.
