Please note, there is no change to the structure of papers for the Summer 2022 exams. There will be the same number of questions and mark allocations as in previous papers.

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 should then use their revision workbook, as well as accessing past papers through the Corby Technical School website to test themselves on the subject they have just revised.

To encourage good practice student should use their cue cards to test their factual knowledge alongside creating more detailed revision notes/mind maps for each of the topics shown in the revision guides.
