Year 11 Exams 2018

Revision Classes and Information

A well-organised home revision schedule is essential at this stage of the year. This booklet contains sample revision timetables and copies of these will be available to pick up in the foyer. Find a format that works for you and display it in a prominent place (on the fridge?) so that everyone can help you stick to it. Your teachers can suggest revision activities and there will be a wide range of revision classes offered in school.

Where there are several classes on at the same time you will need to prioritise and mix and match classes from week to week.

Science GCSE Revision classes

Science revision will be available after-school on the following days. Attendance is voluntary, but there will be little time to revise in lessons, so this is a great opportunity.

Do not limit your revision to these sessions. They are there to support the revision you are doing at home. Make sure that you keep a note of any part of the topic that you do not understand and speak to a Science teacher to get help. You also have Kerboodle, GCSEpod, your revision guide, your notes and your parents and carers. Use them!

School term-time revision planner

This may help you to plan ahead and structure your revision. Make a plan which includes all of the subjects you will be examined in. Alter the times as necessary to suit your routine and fit in with clubs and after-school activities. You are allowed a night off!

Tips:

  • Remember to take regular breaks during your revision (20 minutes on, followed by a 10 minute break works well).
  • Make mind-maps/ posters / revision cards. This will ensure your revision is active and productive and you will be able to re-use them for the summer exams. Don’t forget to fill in your revision record so you remember which areas to request help with.
  • Do something to keep your brain / body active during your break (walk the dog, phone a friend, chat to a parent, play a game of cards etc. Don’t watch TV or use electronic devices which allow you to be passive and may tempt you to delay getting back to work.
  • Factor in mealtimes, sleep time and time for relaxing. If you are not well rested, well-nourished and happy you will not achieve your best.
