Key Dates and arrangements for the remainder of Year 11
Two weeks left this term……. There are only two weeks left this half term. In this time you will receive the results of your mocks. You will also get feedback from your teachers on WWW and what areas you need to focus on. Its important to use this information……. There is enough time to improve before the ‘real’ exams if you want to and you set aside enough time to work hard. PREP sessions will continue to run for identified students POST PREP sessions are also running. Both of these are vital to support you if you have been asked to attend COURSEWORK deadlines in practical subjects are VERY SOON My favourite Easter eggs are mini eggs or Cadbury’s crème eggs…….
Easter Holidays and Revision We break up for Easter on Friday March 27 th. There will be Easter Revision sessions for invited students taking place in a variety of subjects. Letters will be sent home and parents contacted as well. These sessions are VERY IMPORTANT in helping you do well in your exams. We return to college on Monday April 13 th. There will also be Saturday morning revision for invited students running from the end of Easter into May. Further details will follow.
Practical exams These take place WB April 20 th and April 27 th. These are for: Dance, PE, Art, Photography and Drama. Some of these exams are over 1-2 days so will impact on which lessons you can attend so you need to plan ahead. If you are away for these exams, it will have a MAJOR IMPACT on your final grade as there will be no chance to redo these.
The ‘Real Exams’! Your first is exam is on Tuesday May 5 th (after Star Wars Day). This is English and so is MASSIVELY important. The other exams will take place at different times over the next 6 weeks. You MUST know when your exams take place, where they are, what time they start and your candidate number. The last exam is on Friday June 19 th. There is a list of all exams on the wall outside the ACO office (my office). You will shortly receive an individual timetable which shows each of YOUR exams.
Revision and Intervention Revision and intervention sessions will take place from Easter onwards. Some of these will run during PREP. Others will run after PREP. Some will run during the day and replace other lessons. This will apply particularly when you have completed exams in some subjects – these lessons will then be used to support other subjects with extra lessons or for individual revision. This is all being carefully timetabled to ensure you have the best opportunity to pass your exams. YOU NEED TO ATTEND ALL SESSIONS THAT APPLY TO YOU – ITS YOUR FUTURE!! Details will follow…….
