Personalised Learning Feedback Sheets

35 Mathematics GCSE Exam - Key Information
Personalised Learning Feedback Sheets These sheets are designed to inform the students, classroom teacher, after school teacher and parents which topics the students have a good understanding of and most importantly which topics the student requires further support. The most effective way to use the Personalised Learning Feedback Sheets is for the student to ‘RAG’ rate the topics. (Full marks GREEN, more than half mark AMBER, less than half RED). Then watch the Maths Watch Clip (MWC) referenced against each question and attempt the question again. Classroom teacher, after school teacher and parents together can easily see areas the students is finding difficult and help accordingly. There is room at the bottom for teachers, students and parents to communicate effectively regarding the paper and student progress.

43 English GCSE – Key Information
Course Information The course consists of TWO separate GCSEs: - English Language (IGCSE syllabus) - English Literature (AQA Syllabus)

44 English GCSE – Key Information
IGCSE IGCSE is the Language component of GCSE English. It comprises of 3 pieces of Coursework, a Speaking and Listening assignment and a terminal examination.

45 English GCSE – Key Information
IGCSE Coursework Assignment 1: informative, analytical and/or argumentative. Assignment 2: imaginative, descriptive and/or narrative. Assignment 3: a response to a text or texts chosen by the Centre. The text(s) should contain facts, opinions and arguments. Candidates respond to the text(s) by selecting, analysing and evaluating points from the material (reading objectives R1–R3). They may write in any appropriate form they wish. Speaking and Listening: prepare and deliver a 4 minute presentation on a topic of their choice, to be delivered with minimal assisting materials. After the presentation, candidates will be expected to respond to questions from their assessor for a minimum of 6 minutes – this will be recorded and sent to the examination board. The coursework and speaking elements of the course account for 60% of the total marks for students’ Language GCSE.

46 IGCSE Examinations Students will sit a terminal examination in the 2015 June exam series. The examination is 2 hours in length and will form the final 40% of the GCSE Language grade. During the exam, candidates will answer 3 questions based on 2 passages from texts. Passage A will consist of words, Passage B will consist of words.

47 English GCSE – Key Information
GCSE Literature The second of the GCSEs for which candidates will study is English Literature, where we follow the AQA specification. This will be assessed through 1 piece of controlled assessment and 2 separate examinations. The Controlled Assessment (done over 4 hours under controlled conditions) should have been completed by all students, however they do have the option to re-sit this in the autumn term should they wish to do so. The examinations will assess the students’ understanding and knowledge of the ‘Sunlight on the Grass’ collection, Of Mice and Men, Conflict poetry and an unseen poem. These exams are scheduled as follows: Literature Paper 1 – Monday 18th May 2015 Literature Paper 2 – Friday 22nd May 2015
