This page aims to support the information that will be sent home via class teachers about the exam specifications that students are following - and teachers do provide a wealth of information to students about revision, the format of the exam, tackling exam questions and detail about the specification being taught.
Sometimes there are published revision guides which have been produced and tailored especially for the specification of a particular exam board. Sometimes there are only generic revision guides available. Subject teachers will advise students about this in class. For some subjects (Maths and D&T subjects) the school buys in revision guides for students to purchase or borrow. In those cases that Department will write to parents offering them the opportunity to purchase the guides.
