Mr Cowley has launched the revision period for Year 10 GCSEs. Meeting with Maths students in the Weston Theatre, he described what students can expect with a modified test format in preparation for the 'Statistics and Number' exam on 9th November.
Students have purchased a revision guide, workbook, and a set of papers to practice for this hour-long calculator exam which accounts for 26.7 per cent of their total grade. There will be a practice exam after the break and students are reminded to prepare earnestly for this first assessment. Calculators can be purchased for £6 at finance and students are encouraged to have this model of the school's recommended calculator.
