Getting Ready for Exams

Well done to all those Year 11 pupils who have been attending English revision after school on Mondays. This year pupils will be sitting the new English exams (graded 9-1) and there is a lot to revise including four set texts.

Don’t let your child tell you that you can’t revise for English – you can!

Here are some methods:

  • Produce a character/theme mind-map for a set text
  • Produce a set of revision cards for your set text
  • Draw a plot diagram for your set text
  • Learn quotations from your set text
  • Revise the techniques for different styles of writing
  • Complete timed answers – submit them to your teacher
  • Read online newspaper articles
  • Watch some of the Mr Bruff revision tutorials available on line
  • Attend Easter revision classes at school
  • Revise rules for structure of stories
  • Use GCSEPod to revise punctuation rules
  • Plan a writing response – content and technique
