Support with examination revision 

Most students try to revise in the wrong ways, ones that are proven to be the least helpful. So, we’ve been working with KS4, and now KS3, at helping students to have a better understanding of how the brain stores information effectively and methods that students might use to help them remember what they need to know for tests and examinations. There are a series of videos that they have had shared with them in form time – but they are also shared here so that students can access them again:

Contingency Day

The awarding bodies have designated Thursday 6th June 2024, Thursday 13th June 2024 and Wednesday 26th June 2024 as ‘contingency days’ for examinations. This is consistent with the qualification regulators’ document Exam system contingency plan: England, Wales and Northern Ireland – gov.uk/government/publications/ exam-system-contingency-plan-england-wales-and-northern-ireland

The designation of a ‘contingency day’ within the common examination timetable is in the event of national or significant local disruption to examinations in the United Kingdom.

It is part of the awarding bodies’ standard contingency planning for examinations. We must therefore remind you that you must remain available until Wednesday 26th June 2024 should an awarding body need to invoke its contingency plan.
