Year 11, 12 and 13 mock-exams will be held between the 8th and 22nd of November. This will be an excellent opportunity for the pupils to experience preparing for, and taking exams under formal conditions, something they have not yet had the opportunity to experience.
The timetable has already been shared with the pupils to allow sufficient time for preparation. We have also organized sessions with the company 'Positively Mad' to sharpen pupils' revision skills. By holding the mock exams quite early in the year, we hope to secure enough time to address any deficiencies in pupils' exam skills before they sit external exams in the summer of 2022.
Qualifications Wales confirmed in a statement yesterday that external examinations will take place in 2022, but a contingency plan is in place in case of cancelation based on a similar system to last year.
A copy of the mock exam timetable has been emailed to all parents.
