TO THE FINAL EXAMS!

DAY 231
Issue 3

Dear Y11s, yet again we wish to say thank you for your hard work since the last edition of
‘The Final Countdown‘. This week we are going to talk to you about revision for exams.
Most of you will be taking either the English exam or Maths and Science re-sits in No-
vember and it is now extremely important that you are revising regularly.

What exactly do we mean by revision? It is not just reading your exercise or text book.
If learning was as easy as that we would just give you a textbook at the start of Y10 and
say ‗get on with it‘ and we would all be out of a job! Just stop a minute and think about all
the different activities you do in lessons to help you learn. When have you ever had a
lesson where you just read the information? The rule is: never revise without a pen in
your hand. For all your subjects you should be taking notes, doing practice questions,
talking to people about what you have learnt. It is imperative that you actively engage in
your revision. To help you we have provided you with a free gift of a highlighter in this
week‘s edition.

We are also providing you with extra revision sessions after school and for those doing
the English exam there is coursework catch up every night until the exam to make sure
you get the best possible grade. There is also Maths Watch, My Maths and SAM learning
for you to access from home. Good luck!
