Welcome to Year 8 Exam information area.

Dear Parents/Carers,

Year 8 Exams

I am writing to share details of the upcoming year 8 exams that will take place between Monday 31st January and Friday 11th February. Please find below a schedule of the exams.

The aims for the year 8 exams are:

  • To help students to build their revision skills
  • To provide the experience of a period of multiple exams
  • To help teachers understand what students still need to learn.

We have an exam period once per academic year, and our broad aim is for students to feel increasingly able and confident with exams as they progress through the school.  The years 8 exams are in a limited number of subjects, to provide the opportunity to develop revision skills while not being overwhelming for students.

The examinations will be taken in normal lesson slots but under formal examination conditions. Students will have two exams in maths, one exam in English, one exam in science, one exam in their modern foreign language, one in exam in History, Geography and RS.

We have provided full revision material for each exam and further information about the exams in general on our website here:

https://www.brookfield.hants.sch.uk/examsrevision8general.php

Next week, all year 8 students will have an Exam Preparation Lesson during either a Geography or History lesson.  In these lessons the teacher will support students to create a written personalised revision plan covering the next 3 weeks and the two-week exam period.  A blank copy of the revision plan with guidance will also be available on the website so that your son or daughter can complete it at home if they are absent for the lesson. 

We would be grateful if you would ask for your son or daughter to share their revision plan with you when they complete it next week, to help them refine it.  We generally find that year 8 students who practise planning and organising their revision at home fare better in year 9, 10 and 11, and we find that parent support in this process is invaluable.

Exam results will be shared with you prior to the subject evening in March where we look forward to discussing your son or daughter’s results and the upcoming options process.

If you have any questions or issues, please do not hesitate to contact the class teacher or Learning Leader for the subject.

Kind regards

Mr P Pease
Deputy Headteacher
