Revision Guidance for Year 11s
Please take the time to look at the documents below; there is a blank revision timetable to allow you to structure your subject revision more clearly (use different colours for different subjects to make it easier to read), there is also a concise revision guide giving specific information by subject to make sure that you target essential areas in your revision. If you have any questions always speak to your subject teacher - remember there is no such thing as a silly question!
Parents - during the exam period:
Try to ensure that:
- Your daughter/son gets a good night’s sleep before exams.
- They know the start times of every exam that they are taking that day.
They have all the equipment they need:
- a rubber;
- a ruler;
Sometimes they may also need:
- a calculator (GCSE Maths Paper 2, and all science exams allow calculators);
- a protractor;
- a compass;
- coloured pencils.
Pencil cases must be transparent.
Please also note:
Water is allowed in clear bottles with labels removed (no fizzy, no squash).
Sweets are only allowed in clear plastic bags, and without wrappers.
If your daughter/son is too ill to take their exam:
Inform the college immediately by leaving a message with the receptionist for the Exams Officer;
Take your child to their GP, explain that your daughter/son is too ill to take their exam and ask for a certificate or a note.
Ensure that the certificate is sent to the school as soon as possible, addressed to the Exams Officer with a covering note from you.
The school will then apply to the exam board for special consideration. In this way your child may gain a mark for the missed exam. Please note that this is not guaranteed and if granted will be an average assessed on your daughter/son’s previous performance.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch with the college if you would like more help or advice to prepare your son or daughter for their GCSEs.
In the first instance, contact your son or daughter’s form tutor. You can also telephone your son/daughter’s subject teachers, who will be able to answer questions relating to preparation or to levels of entry.
Exams Certificates are issued in the autumn, and due to the value and privacy attached, have to be signed for and collected in person. If you wish to allow a family member to collect these for you, please complete the attached form. WE CANNOT RELEASE CERTIFICATESS UNLESS THIS FORM IS COMPLETED.
We have a large number of uncollected certificates at the college going back several years. In the past we have kept them on the off chance that students will one day remember them and come and collect them. But we are running out of space, and now in accordance with Section 5.15 of the JCQ's General Regulations 2016-2017, we have to destroy those that have remained uncollected for over 12 months.
We will give a deadline of this for February 1st 2017, so please come and collect your certificates before then.
