Exam Revision Guides
Revision guides have been produced to provide specific, directed help to parents and students. The guides cover the examinations, both internal and external, that students take during the course of their HeadStart educational journey.
Examination Preparation for Term 1
In November students begin to revise for the upcoming exams. Preparation begins with revision in class. Students should also begin to revise at home. This will culminate in exam week which starts at the end of November.
Year 2 will be examined in the core subjects of English and Maths; Years 3, 4 and 5 will be examined in the core subjects of English, Maths and Science. The other subject areas are all assessed through on-going teacher assessment. The results will be reported back to parents at the end of term 1 through the reports and the parent conferences which take place in December.
Progression Test Revision Packs for Term 3
At the end of each academic year, students in Years 2, 3, 4 and 5 have an end of year test (Year 2) or a Cambridge Progression Test (Years 3, 4 and 5) in the Core Subjects of English, Mathematics and Science. At the start of Term 3, Year 6 take a Cambridge Checkpoint Test which is a series of diagnostic tests in English, Mathematics and Science. The papers are marked by Cambridge and the results are known towards the end of Term 3.
Parents and students should carefully read the revision guides and the sample questions as this will provide a solid foundation prior to, and during, a student’s revision schedule.
