It is essential that your child attempts these tests with the aim of achieving the best possible results they can.
Topics that will be tested
B1 Cell-level systems; B2.1 Supplying the cell; B4 Community level systems (as far as taught in lessons)
C1 Particles; C2.2 Bonding; C3.3 Types of chemical reactions; C4 Predicting and identifying reactions and products
P2 Forces; P3.1 Static and charge; P3.3 Magnets and magnetic fields (P4 for separate); P4.1 Wave behaviour; P4.2 the electromagnetic spectrum (P5.1 and 5.2 for separate)
All students have been given Revision Guides with Workbooks that the Science Departments have purchased for students to use to prepare for examinations. Revision resources can be found on Frog which include past paper questions, board works quizzes and mindmaps. Students also have access to the online textbook and further practice questions at https://www.kerboodle.com.
