SUMMER 2022 EXAMS

After yet another summer of fantastic results we prepare for the January and Summer 2022 exams. o be

As exam dates are released we provide them here.

BOOKING YOUR EXAMS

Start contacting exam centres now. They will each have their own deadlines. It can feel odd booking without knowing the exact exam dates, but your centre should be able to guide you. It's very rare that exams clash and if they do your centre can advise how you can still take them all. 

It's worth discussing with them their process in the event exams are cancelled or adapted. Each centre has different expectations. We always work with willing exam centres to ensure you obtain your grade.

END OF YEAR 1 EXAM

If you're following our timetable you should now have handed in your end of year exam (or be very close to). The results so far are phenomenal! You should be so proud. If you didn't achieve as high as you hoped don't worry! These are learning exercises, not final grades. You've been provided feedback to improve.

If your completing the course over a shorter time you can take the exam when you reach it. We aim to mark at least every fortnight. At busy times it might take a little longer.

PHYSICISTS ...

We know some existing students struggled with momentum and momentums from term 1.

 We have updated our lessons to hopefully improve your understanding. If you need to work on these please try lesson 11, 12 and 13. You won’t be tested on these until your second real exam so you have time.

ONLINE ASSIGNMENTS

As you know we have been adding online assignments to lessons that previously did not have any. This is ongoing. Don't feel you need to move backwards 'filling them in'. We will be scheduling revision time for this.

TUTOR SUPPORT

We are streamlining our communication ports to be more inclusive to all students and guardians. We are moving all communication to email and the website. If you are in a Facebook group already you can still use this, but you’re welcome to use the new features below if you prefer. 

MESSAGE AND EMAIL

WHAT HAPPENS IF EXAMS ARE CANCELLED AGAIN?

In the event exams are cancelled and a predicted grade is required, we will be running a live online invigilated exam (similar to what we did this year). Please prepare for an exam regardless of what happens with covid.
