Revision advice and topics

  • All curriculum teams are already working hard to prepare students with revision advice, guidance and lists of the things that they need to revise. Students should listen carefully to this advice and organise their revision in advance. Our teachers are here to help and students are always free to see them outside of lesson time if they have any specific questions.
  • Our curriculum team leaders have put together these two invaluable resources that summarise exactly what is in each of the exam papers in every subject and how students should prepare for them.

General revision advice

  • The document how students learn gives a scientific insight into how we remember things including specific revision strategies that we know work. This is a useful resource for you to go through with your daughter/son. We have also put together a five minute revision techniques video for you to watch.

Help for reading

  • This year, students who are entitled to help will be using a reading pen in all of their examinations. These students have already been trained to use the pen as well as being given the opportunity to loan a reading pen so that they can get confident using it in their lessons and at home. We know that using the pen can be a real help. Please approach our SEN team if you want to know more.
  • Students who are entitled to different coloured paper in exams will this year be given coloured overlays to use on buff paper. This will be of no disadvantage to students whilst also reducing needless stress for students before exams.
