PLEASE NOTE - Summer 2019 Exam Certificates are available for collection from the school exam office. They must be collected before 31 March 2020. Any uncollected certificates will then be returned to the examination board or destroyed.
Exams can be a very challenging and difficult time for your child and helping them through the stress of revision and providing general support can have a very positive impact on their learning.
Assisting with revision tasks
work out a revision timetable for each subject and agree a time for each task
break the revision time is small chunks, with short breaks after each session
go through the notes they’ve made at school and ask specific question to test their understanding
use highlighters and postcards to emphasize to essential information
ensure your child has all the books and equipment necessary
time their attempts at practice papers
provide your child with a quiet place to study and try to maintain a pleasant general atmosphere at home
ensure your child gets enough sleep – particularly the night before the exam – and try to provide healthy and nutritional foods and snack during the revision period;
ensure they have enough breaks during the day and suggest a short walk in the park, even during a busy revision day, to help clear the mind before the next session
