Your end of term exams are coming, so here is some advice about how to revise effectively.
Every class has the same exam:
Part 1 – Listening – you will listen to the CD and write the answers on your exam paper.
Part 2 – Vocabulary – you will be tested on 60 words that come from vocab lists 1-11
Part 3 – ICD – you will do exercises on every ICD we have done, for most classes this is ICD 4-11.
Part 4 – Expression – you will write about a subject studied in class, ex. presentations, descriptions, hobbies, films, depending on your class.
You have a lot of exams so it is important to be organised and DON’T PANIC!!
* Revise 30 minutes the take a break for 2-5 minutes.
*Reread your lessons and vocab lists.
*Ask if there is anything you don’t understand.
*Do the checklist at the end of the chapter in the workbook – if you can do this you can pass the exam easily.
*Do the exercises in the book, at the end of the chapter and in the grammar bank.
*Ask for revision exercises if you want more.
*Draw a spidergram of what you have learnt.
*Write your vocab on cards with the translation on the back.
*Draw a picture of every word you don’t know.
* Use mnemonics to remember – SANV = sans anglais, NUL VICTOIRE!
* Do exercises & games on the internet, ex. anglaisfacile.com.
* Download apps to revise, ex. Grammar in Use.
*Get plenty of sleep.
* Do lots of sport.
* Eat healthy food, not junk food.
* Explain to someone what you have learnt and revised every day.
*Buy some chocolate for Mrs Harris! – This might not improve your result but at least we will have something nice to eat while I help you revise!
