Year 11 Mantra "Be selfish for my grade"
Your March mock examinations are your ‘second race’ of the year.
It is the last point before your summer GCSE exams, that we can understand what level you are currently working at – this will be a measurement of the extremely impressive hard work you have been completing this academic year.
Your March mocks will be used to inform predictions (which will be what 6th forms will want to know for your admissions), for any final set changes and allow you to see your progress.
To prepare for your mocks, you should ensure that you have access to the following things:
It is important that you are revision correctly and smartly – this means planning your revision schedule and keeping to it, rather than revising at the last minute.
IT IS NOT ENOUGH TO JUST COMPLETE THE WORK WHICH IS GIVEN TO YOU IN CLASS
You should see your learning as follows:
Those who will achieve higher grades will complete all four waves of classwork, self-quizzing, subject homework and revision.
I hope that Parents/Carers had the opportunity to speak with teachers during Parents’ Evening this week – it is a crucial feedback point, which connects Parents/Carers with teachers and students, to better understand what went well over this first term and what students need to do to improve further. If you have not had the opportunity to discuss progress with teachers and would like to, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org and I will facilitate this for you.
