AQA Chief Examiner Mr. David Redfern was at St Ninian’s High School last Saturday to deliver two exam workshops for Y12 and Y13 geographers from all of the island’s secondary schools. The two and half hour longsessions were well attended, with the lecture theatre full during both. The presentations were based on the forthcoming Geog 1 and Geog 3 papers, providing information about the exam structure and expectations. It was useful for students to see examples of real exam scripts from past exams, to see how marks had been allocated, and how that translated to grades.
Many thanks to Mr. Redfern for his time, and the geography staff and students from all the schools for their participation.
Good luck everyone for the forthcoming exams and don’t forget the Y12 drop in session on Monday 21st May.
