Exam preparation and revision

To prepare for exams, students should:

  • effectively organise their time between now and the end of the examination period and adopt a comprehensive revision programme for study at home
  • highlight on their mock examination timetable the examinations which they will be taking to avoid the possibility of missing one and keep it in a prominent place at home
  • revise at home or quietly in the school library, or one of the allocated revision rooms (a list of which will be posted daily on the library door) when not in an exam
  • attend any revision sessions being offered by the school
  • use revision techniques covered during study skills workshops to make their learning and revision more effective
