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.

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.
