Mocks & Post Mocks Year 11, 12 & 13

Year 12 and 13 Mock Exams

Sixth Form mocks are fast approaching and will take place from 27th Feb – 10th Mar. Students will sit a variety of papers for all their A-level subjects. These exams will be for all Y13 students as well as students in Year 12 who are following unreformed subjects (Media, Product Design and Maths). Year 12 and 13 students will receive their Mock Exam Timetables via Form Tutors this week or early next week. If they are absent when these are handed out, students need to go to the Exams Office to collect their timetable. Thank you.

Year 11 Post-mock Exams

Year 11s will sit their last formal papers in English Language, Maths, and later on English Literature – these papers will provide a vital picture of all students’ current level and will guide students and staff in addressing weaker areas in the last few weeks before final GCSEs. Students will sit full papers in each subject and English and Maths teachers are already preparing students for these in lessons and as part of Step Up.

The date for the Y11 exams are:

27th Feb: Maths (Paper 1) @ 11:15am
