exam technique when out of time?

    whilst I consistently encourage my pupils to plan their answers (either mentally or in margins) a few always run out of time...ie-only 5 minutes left to write 12 mark question.

    What advice would you give them in that situation?

    Tell your students to write the word plan, and then list the things they wanted to include, they must not cross this out. With a bit of luck they will pick up a few precious marks.

    In the meantime practise past questions with a strict minutes to marks calculation. Then get the students to work this out quickly for themselves.
