WEBSITE UPDATES

BUTTONS

You may have noticed a few additional buttons. These just give you links to the things we email out. The newsletter, covid updates (exam cancellation issues mainly) and general exam information for when things are normal. There’s also the Edexcel syllabus added to each subject. This is just for those interested. You don’t need to follow it or even open it. You can just follow the swss course. 

NEW (HUMAN) BIOLOGY AND CHEMISTRY VIDEOS

Three new biology videos have been added to support the workbook in term 3 lesson 12 (there previously was no video). This is genetics and I know some of you found this hard so these should help. If you don’t need to watch them just give them a quick click and your tracker will update. Similarly, term 1 lesson 5 video 2 (crystallisation) is also new. Click it to mark as viewed on your tracker.

We are working through other videos improving quality.

WHAT HAPPENS IF EXAMS ARE CANCELLED AGAIN?

If exams are cancelled, you are being offered to spread your predicted grade from SWSS over one or two assessments. The second is compulsory. The first is optional.

 

  1. Online exam covering term 1 and 2.

  2. IGCSE paper 1 and 2.

The benefit of taking the optional assessment is you can practice exam questions in controlled conditions, but only let the grade contribute to your final level if you choose it to.

 

The optional assessments will take place in early April and focus on term 1 and 2 only. Please find more details here
