Internal Exams

Year 11 Update

Year 11 students will be taking part in Pre-public exams (Mocks) during the week beginning 23rd November. In light of the changing COVID situation it is vital for school to have robust evidence of student capabilities that could be used as evidence for grade predictions if necessary. While we have every expectation at present that Year 11 will be sitting exams next year we need to be prepared so I encourage all students to take these exams seriously, prepare for them thoroughly and give themselves the best chance of success. Staff will be using the lessons in the week prior to the exam period to prepare students and after school revision will be offered but revision needs to be done at home too. Please see below useful websites to aid revision.

In addition, this half term students are being asked to consider what they wish to do next after Year 11 and are being offered opportunities in registration to explore what is available. This will include our 6th form offer here at Benfield, details will be on the school website as soon as possible, as well as information about Apprenticeships and college.

 

Year 13 Update

Year 13 students will be taking part in Pre-public exams (Mocks) during the week beginning 16th November. In light of the changing COVID situation it is vital for school to have robust evidence of student capabilities that could be used as evidence for grade predictions if necessary. While we have every expectation at present that Year 13 will be sitting exams next year we need to be prepared, so I encourage all students to take these exams seriously, prepare for them thoroughly and give themselves the best chance of success.

A revision timetable plan can help with organisation. We would encourage students to use the Pomodoro method to revise, a technique that allows them to maximise their revision and avoid becoming over-tired or stressed. Below is a video link to explain what to do.
