2023 EXAMS

Whether you are a new or existing student with us you don't have to think about exams just yet! Here are some updates that may be of interest to existing students.

EXISTING STUDENTS

Don't forget to hand in work as you reach it. Human biologists have a graphs test in term 3 lesson 1 and all subjects have an end of year exam in the end of term 3 folder, 2 practical tests (R01 folder) and a full mock exam (R07 folder).

We aim to mark at least fortnightly. Although, there may be some slight delays at very busy times. Please be patient. I am marking by myself (Jo).

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

Contact a tutor via message on your account.  Click the speech bubble in the top right hand corner and search for ‘Tutor – Ask me a question!’. You can also email questions@swscienceschool.co.uk.

LIVE DROP IN SESSIONS

If you want help live with science questions please join these sessions on Friday between 2.45 – 4.45pm. These are on zoom and the meeting ID is 850 803 9897 

ADMIN & IT SUPPORT

Contact via info@swscienceschool.co.uk

If you wish to report an issue with the course, for example a video appears to run slowly for you or you believe there is an error you can use the report an issue button above your lesson folders.  

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.
