GCSE Revision Guides
In order to support GCSE students in their preparation for Summer exams, we have created a detailed study and revision guide. This guide offers general advice as well as links to subject specific websites. Students should use this guide, and the relevant websites, in conjunction with their class notes and subject textbooks. Please also visit individual subject pages for specific guidance where available. Please click the icon to the right to view the Revision Guide.
Year 11 Easter Revision Guide
The purpose of this booklet is to offer you additional support during the Easter holiday, which is the crucial period for intensive revision before your public examinations begin. We return to school after a three week break and there is no doubt that your final grade in August will depend on the effort you have made during this time.
This booklet contains important information from all the various subject areas and should be used as a starting point for your revision preparation. Each Department has explained what they require of you over the holidays and where you can find important information regarding your upcoming exams. There is also information about where to find past paper material, as well as mark schemes and examiner reports. All of these things are essential to create a strong foundation upon which to base your revision.
Students should also endeavour to follow a clearly established revision timetable to ensure success in their exams. Gordon's advises students to approach the Easter holidays as if they were still at school and run their revision timetable the same as their school timetable, including using evening prep time for testing and re-capping. This will allow for regular breaks but help to keep students focused on study. It will also help ensure that all subjects are covered effectively, not just their favourites.
