Revision videos

These model answer revision videos explain how to address exam questions in different subjects. They mostly focus on questions that have higher marks for being able to explain/analyse/evaluate.   They can be used in the classroom by teachers, at home by students and even in departments as part of CPD. 


It is also worth noting that the main purpose of these videos is to focus on structure. For any issues regarding content/depth, teachers (who are the subject experts) can clarify this with their students.  This section will be updated over time and I will include as many exam boards as I can as sometimes they can differ from what they look for.  For example, Business Studies Edexcel/AQA have different approaches as to how to structure an answer for some questions.



I strongly advise different departments in the school to collaborate together in terms of teaching students how to write in their subjects. For example, Biology, Chemistry and Physics teachers could take the same approach so that the students receive consistency when it comes to developing those crucial literacy skills that will help improve their grades. The same applies to other areas of the school where, for example, History and Geography can work together as well as Business Studies and Economics.
