Grading confusion Grades are awarded on a 9-1 scale (2 = E, 4 = C, 7 = A) BUT Grade 5 is now the new good pass

9 to 1 explained Responsibility Students must take responsibility for their own learning Are they being the best they can be? What can they do to improve?

Resilience Students must persevere until they have a good understanding or have found a solution to that problem Giving up does not equal success Thinking skills must be developed How you can help

Consolidation every day 10 minutes using something like the following with instant feedback; Revision Times guides

table practice Websites like bbcbitesize or mymaths.co.uk

How you can help DIY revision guide Help your child turn their old exercise books into a revision guide using post-it notes or index tabs for key methods or formula How you can help

Check your childs book regularly with them Ask them about the work they are doing to help them think about their own understanding Have they corrected mistakes to help make faster progress

When is a tutor an option? When they want to learn When they need a bit of extra confidence When is a tutor not a good idea? When their lack of progress stems from a lack of responsibility
