Advice for Years 7 – 10

If your teachers have not been able to set you work, relevant to recent lessons, you may be asked to complete the work provided in these folders. Many tasks may have been emailed directly home but you can print these off from source (School Server / Website / email). If you know a Bandh has been called, make sure you take home your text books and exercise books.

Advice for Years 11 – 13

You are advised to undertake a systematic review of completed topics. To do this, first review your own notes to make sure they are in chronological order and material is collated in appropriate sections.

  1. Use the syllabus to ensure you have an overview of each section and that your notes are complete.
  2. Use your text books to complete missing parts.
  3. Begin your review by deciding how best you learn and revise: pictures, diagrams, notes, mind-maps, post-its, flashcards etc.
  4. Produce a plan of the syllabus and work methodically through each topic, creating summaries of key facts and principles.
    1. Avoid getting bogged down with fine detail
    2. Concentrate on the ideas and illustrative material
    3. Test yourself as you go, using the text book or even set up a text-test group with colleagues from the same subject! If you have access to a computer and internet use appropriate websites or set up a subject Facebook page to liaise with friends over progress.
    4. Use past papers carefully: revise a topic and pick questions, reviewing the mark scheme. DON’T do whole papers until you have revised everything otherwise you could reinforce errors!

If you know a Bandh has been called, make sure you take home your text books and exercise books.
