What can I do to help me with the exams?

 

For English exams:

  • Go through your folder and the strategies we have learnt.  Look through your MOCK papers and use the feedback to help.
  • Complete past papers (see Mrs Elvin for past papers or look online).  Mrs Elvin is happy to mark them and give you support to improve your answers.

 

 

On the day of the exam…

The ESC will be providing breakfast. Make sure you have something to eat and drink.

Research shows that pupils and students who eat breakfast perform better in exams.
