Letter regarding Mock Examinations
As an outstanding school, Saint Edmund’s aims to constantly refine and improve the procedures in place for students preparing for examinations. We want our students to achieve the best possible results for themselves and continue the culture of success prevalent in the school. The Mathematics department has therefore introduced an additional mock GCSE to be taken during the week before Easter. There are several benefits to this additional exam; it will provide a key target to work towards during the run up to Easter and will then allow revision to be targeted towards specific weaknesses over the Easter holidays. The result of the mock is very important - this will be the grade given to colleges, when requested, and used to decide which course a candidate is suitable for. Please note that the result of the mock will also be used to decide the final tier of entry; whether a student should sit the Higher or Foundation tier. The examinations will take place on Monday 26th March, Tuesday 27th March and Wednesday 28th March. Each paper is 1 hour 30 minutes long and will begin at 1:35pm, finishing near 3:10pm. For the papers on Tuesday and Wednesday a calculator will be required.
