MOCK EXAMS 

 

Dear Parents/Carers,

 

We are conducting mock exams this half term to prepare for the GCSE exams in the summer. These exams will also show us where your child needs help so we can give them more targeted support. The aim is for your child to achieve the best possible grade in the actual exams. During the mocks some students will be sitting functional skills. This will allow some students to bank early Maths and English qualifications.

 

We understand that some of our students find exams stressful and cause some anxiety. Teachers are practicing with students in class past papers to minimise the stress level and build confidence.

 

These exams are meant to be supportive and we are happy to support any young person who is finding the process stressful.

 

We will be running these mock exams on:

All students will need to stay in the exam room under controlled exam conditions within the JCQ regulations.

 

  • Phones will be collected at the door
  • Bags will need to be left with the Engagement team upon entry
  • Coats will be collected at the door.
  • Wrist watches need to be handed in

 

During the two days there will be no lessons for year 10 and 11 students as they are required to attend the exams only. They will be free to leave the Academy and return home as soon as their exam is complete. 

 

Revision work will be available for the students via google classroom.

 

Many thanks for your continued support.

 

Kind regards,
