2 What we will cover this evening? Distribution of mock results Explanation of mock results English and Maths input Key dates in the Year 11 calendar Next steps A chance to collect important information linked to revision Opportunity to talk to subject staff and form tutors

3 What does the mock result sheet contain? A mock % ( % result from the mock exam) A mock grade A predicted grade (the grade teachers feel your daughter will achieve in the summer assuming she works to her full potential) A target grade (the minimum grade we feel she should aim to achieve. Teachers and students will negotiate more ambitious targets in class) % attendance to date Some subjects (e.g. BTEC Science) did not sit a formal mock examination because of the practical nature of the course In some cases, the predicted/mock grade may be higher than the target grade. This means things are going well!

4 Why do mock results matter? An important milestone towards summer exams Helps to focus minds They tell us as teachers where your strengths are and what you need to do to improve Help us to consider the predicted grade in case you miss an examination in the summer
