As teachers we know how stressful it can be watching students go through exam season but we also know that stress is more often than not vented at home rather than in the classroom. It is difficult to know what to do especially as you don't know the syllabus requirements or the best way to revise or when the exams are.
This post is aimed at supporting parents in helping their students prepare for the English exams at home.
This year all Year 11 will have exams on Tuesday May the 5th. This is a reading exam.
Some but not all Year 11 students will have a writing exam on Friday 8th May.
All Year 10s and some Year 11 students will have Literature exams on Monday 18th and Friday 22nd of May.
The best way students can revise at this stage is by carrying out practice questions which all students have had set as homework.
There are a number of posts on this blog with guides on developing exam answers and there are links to a range of revision videos.
If you have any questions about the examination period or supporting your child's revision, you can post a comment below.
