Preparing effectively for mock examinations 

These mock examinations take place at an important juncture in Key Stage 4. They will support both teachers and pupils to precisely identify areas of strength and key development areas. In addition, it will support pupils to reflect on how effective their revision has been. Teachers have started to prepare pupils for these mock examinations by providing them with materials to revise from and a clear schedule of revision. This may include access to some of the online platforms that the school has purchased for pupils to access; details of these are below. It is therefore important that pupils are supported to revise as effectively as possible at home. Each Thursday in their form times, pupils will be supported to develop revision techniques. The materials that have been used will be shared with parents/carers below.

Below are some suggestions about how you can best support your child to revise effectively:

  • Ask them to show you the revision timetable that they have produced in their form times. Support them to identify a space in which they will revise which is free from distraction. Make sure that they are hydrated and have healthy snacks available.
  • Encourage them to talk to you about what they have revised.
  • Make sure that leisure activities are planned in the week to avoid an overload of revision. Support them to establish and keep a strong routine of sleep with the very least of eight hours a night.
