This term all students in years 7-10 will sit formal examinations in the school hall. These examinations will be held for all core subjects: English, Mathematics, Science and HSIE (History/Geography). Results will contribute to final report marks. Other subjects also have assessments that will be scheduled during normal lessons. Task notices outlining all details will be given to students. They will also be available on the school website.
Preparing for exams
It’s important that students start exam preparation early and allocate time to all subjects to help them do their best. Setting aside regular study time for study, practising exam style questions under timed conditions and writing summaries are some ways students can form good routines for study and success.
Knowing what to expect
Knowing the weighting, length and format of the exam will also help students be well prepared. Does the exam have different sections, multiple choice questions, short answers, extended responses, problem solving? How much time should be allocated to each of the different sections of the exam? Is equipment such as a calculator and ruler required?
