FEATURE – Good exam preparation starts at the beginning of the new school year
It’s never too early to start preparing students for their external assessments.
Start preparing students for their exam from the start of the new school year so that they understand how they are going to be assessed and have plenty of time to learn how to demonstrate their subject knowledge and understanding to get the best results.
Here are 3 things you can do to prepare your students for exam success from the start:
- Explain – describe the format of the exam papers and the assessment objectives and topics that they will be tested on.
- Show – familiarise them with the different types of exam question they will come across and give advice about what the examiner is looking for for each type.
- Test – use practice papers to find out where they are in their learning and which areas they might need to spend more time on.
