Year 13 Maths Mock Examinations
Information for Parents of Year 13 regarding the Mathematics Mock Exams
7th December 2012
RE: Mathematics Mock examinations
I would like to thank you for your efforts in supporting your son/daughter in Mathematics this far and am writing to inform you of some forthcoming plans.
As you are aware, your son/daughter is taking a Core Mathematics 3 examination on Friday 25th January 2013. In order to prepare for this, we are holding a mock examination on Thursday 13th December from 3:30-5:00 pm. This will be a complete paper and an excellent opportunity to sit an exam under similar conditions to January.
The three Year 13 Maths classes are all taught at different times and do not all have double lessons to undertake the mock within the school timetable. It is difficult to find a time during the school day when all 64 students are free at the same time. Holding this mock after school also saves two valuable teaching periods which can be utilised for further C3 exam practice.
Mechanics 1 will be taken in the summer so your son/daughter will not be tested on this until February half term.
It is essential your child utilises this valuable opportunity by revising thoroughly and is correctly equipped.
Your son/daughter will be furnished with revision materials for the January examination and also has access to various Mathematics websites the school has subscribed to. Whilst it is important to have a good break, please could you remind your child to make full use of these materials over the Christmas holidays, working hard to prepare fully for any resits they may also be taking.
Please do contact me at the school if there are any queries. On behalf of the Mathematics team, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very good Christmas holiday and a peaceful New Year.
Mrs N Dann
