SUMMER 2022 EXAMS

Final exam dates can be found here.

WEBSITE UPDATES

A course progress tracker has been installed for new students.

It records videos watched and online assignments completed. A green assignment is one completed with a score of 80% or more. A yellow assignment is one completed with a score of less than 80%. 

Existing student's online assignments are shown on their tracker, but videos watched are not. Existing students only need to click the video briefly to register it as watched. If you would like me to do this for you let me know via message on your student dashboard (search for tutor). Alternatively, email me at questions@swscienceschool.co.uk.

WHAT HAPPENS IF EXAMS ARE CANCELLED AGAIN?

The government have stated that only unseen and invigilated work will count towards a teacher assessed grade.

A link to their statement can be found here.

Therefore, the tracker and any online assignments will not be accepted by them.

We will be running invigilated online exams (paper 1 and paper 2) as close to the original exam date as possible. These will be 'hidden' Edexcel papers or the Summer 2022 papers if we are asked to use them.

Before Christmas we asked our partner exam centre, Tutors & exams, if they would accept a teacher assessed grade spread over two assessments. One held in March and one in May/June. We have yet to hear back from them. We are willing to offer this if you personally want to and your exam centre will accept. You can try the assessment in March and let us know if you want it to count to your grade or not. It would include past paper questions on the first three terms and incur a fee dependant on the number of people attending.

TIMETABLE

If you are following the two year timetable you now have three weeks to complete the work in the R01 folder. This includes submitting two tests for marking. 

For those following the one year timetable you have until February 20th to complete term 3 (inc. the end of year exam).

Both timetables are just guides.

BOOKING YOUR EXAMS

If you haven't done so already please book your exams with your exam centre. Each of them has their own deadlines.

TUTOR SUPPORT

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

If you want help live with science questions please join the drop in Q&A sessions on Friday between 3 – 5pm. These are on zoom and the meeting ID is 850 803 9897.

 

Please let us know your question / query by noon on the Friday you wish to attend. It makes it easier for the person who runs it who is answering questions from four subjects across almost all levels.
