mock exam information for staff and students.


The mock exams are held to resemble the real exams as closely as possible; in the setting up of the room, how the students enter and leave the room, and the reading of the instructions. This reduces the students concerns for the final exams, enabling them to understand the process as well as leaving them with no surprises when the final exams take place.

I hold mock exam training sessions with staff and invigilators, and students, two weeks before the mock exams take place. I also email the students’ mock exam pack to their parents.

Mock exams are also explained to parents and students at the start of the year in a parent workshop, with the aim of reassuring them regarding the role of the mock exams in the predicted grades process.
