Students have the option to purchase a revision guide, which will aid them in completing revision activities. Students are encouraged to focus on targeted and individual topics during each revision session and ensure their revision is active. These topics have been identified using “Edexcel’s Gap Analysis” which has been completed on all mock exams. Students will be given an understanding of where they have performed effectively and where they have lost marks in their recent exam practice. Activities, outside the ones directed by teachers, which are assigned on “Show My Homework” are creating mind maps, flash cards, knowledge organisers or exam style question practice. Students should also use their revision workbook, along with accessing past papers or question packs through; allowing students to practice application of the knowledge themselves on the topics they have just revised.

To encourage good revision practice, students are provided with past exam papers, and mathematical worksheets, which will have specific questions assigned each week via “Show My Homework”. Additionally, video links will be provided to support revision prior to lesson, allowing time in class to support development of description and explanation skills. These videos will be viewable through “Show My Homework”.              

Once Mocks are finished, students will be provided with a “PIXL Revisit” booklet, which will allow them to revise a number of key topics alongside an additional timetable that is set out weekly on “Show My Homework”. These tasks encourage students to use a range of skills such as condensing their understanding into a small writing space or creating visualizations of their understanding through diagrams. When students discover revision techniques that work for them, they should be encouraged to use these techniques as part of their general revision.
