Exam Preparation

Preparing for exams can be a daunting task for young people but, as it will considerably improve their chances of success, it is worth considering long before exams are approaching. With the right strategies in place and appropriate support at home and in school, pupils can develop a series of good habits that will make studying and dealing with exams much easier.

To help with preparing and planning for exams, we have provided information about what exam preparation should consist of and useful materials such as revision timetables.


Exam guidance

It is the aim of Parkside Academy to make the examination experience as stress-free and successful as possible for all candidates.
