Excel At The SA1: Secondary Revision Guide

Posted by Denise Lee on April 13, 2017

As the SA1s approach, consolidating content knowledge and reviewing exam techniques will prove essential to maximising your child’s performance. 

Reading and Revising

Examinations are part and parcel of academic life, but they are still a major stressor in secondary school life. Students are required to learn, retain and apply vast amounts of knowledge across a wide range of academic subjects — this can be a daunting task. One way your child can  make revision time more manageable is by reading through his or her past work — that includes completed work, as well as corrections. Analysing past mistakes and reviewing effective techniques for question analysis is a good way to engage in reflective learning and become more mindful about avoiding careless errors.

Planning and Preparing

Sound exam preparation starts with having a comprehensive plan. Even as your child works more independently now that he or she is in secondary school, you’ve always emphasised the importance of having a systematic approach to revising for the exams. You’re absolutely right! Allocating blocks of time to each subject with scheduled breaks in-between periods of revision helps your child stay focused. Remind your child about the benefits of having healthful meals and exercising during this period of exam preparation. Additionally, getting adequate rest will also aid your child in getting ready to perform at his or her best during the SA1 papers.
