    Is anyone entering students (year10) for the new spec exam this June? How are you going about preparing them?

    Yes - they're doing good old paper one stuff, as they always would have, and we're also doing the Lit poetry exam. We've been following one of AQA's suggested routes (which is a bit of a mess!), and we have mock exams the week after half term.
     
  4. We are WJEC and are doing Unit 1 of the LIt exam in June and the Lang exams in the Jan of Y11 with retake for units that need it in June of Y11. Not currently offering U1 Lit retake opportunity although I suspect someone in SLT might lean on me to do it.
     
  5. Yes, we are entering them all for Unit 1 and Unit 2 in June. The way we are preparing them is by teaching a lit text to reinforce skills of reading and writing. We are building Unit 2 tasks around this too and ensuring they are taught the old paper one skills alongside with different styles of tasks and homeworks. Constant worry though isn't it!
     
  6. We're with WJEC and entering them for Lang Units 1 and 2 and Lit Unit 1 this summer, with resit opportunities in Jan (and next June if they really *** it up). They're doing Lit 2a/b in Jan, with a resit opportunity next June.
    Strange fruit, this new spec.
