Year 11 Engineering

Summer Examinations


Unit 1

Understanding the Engineering World

All students have the option to purchase a revision guide of engineering, which will aid them in the creation of revision resources. Students are encouraged to focus on individual topics during each revision session and ensure their revision is active. This means creating revision resources such as mind maps and flash cards.

Students are encouraged to focus on the three main topics:

  • AO1: Recall knowledge and show understanding
  • AO2: Apply knowledge and understanding
  • AO3: Analyse and evaluate knowledge and understanding

It would be advisable for students to use each revision session for a different topic and to firstly complete the relevant end of chapter review exercise (strengths and challenges) from their text book.

This will allow them to identify areas more clearly for further work which they can then use the revision guide and suggested websites to revise.

In addition, students are set exam style question through “Show My Homework”. Students are given page numbers of their text book that might be helpful for them alongside each task

Revision guides

All students have access to a revision resource from the Design Technology department and via the school’s shared area. If your child has lost their PDF version then please see a member of the department staff.
