Trial Examinations - Supporting Your Child

As we approach the period of trial examinations, it is vitally important for students to settle into regular and structured home revision to give them the best possible chance of examination success.

Below are some tips for parents, guardians and carers on how to help your child with home revision:

• Provide them with a comfortable, quiet and well-lit area to work in
• Keep siblings occupied at revision times
• Ensure they are properly hydrated and are eating well
• Ensure they have adequate sleep
• Help them to put a home revision schedule together
• Break revision times into small 15 to 20 minute periods
• Ensure they have the books and equipment they need to properly revise
• Encourage them to adopt revision techniques such as writing brief notes to act as prompts

• Keep positive; create a ‘can do’ attitude
