Children’s Mental Health Week- Exam Preparation & Resources for Teaching Staff
Published: Friday February 11 2022 by Melanie Crewe
The focus on vital curriculum catch-up in readiness for exams will undoubtedly add pressure to our already struggling young learners. 'Advance Content' has been released to help mitigate the impact of the pandemic on education and provide the early intervention required to lessen stress and anxiety.
The advance content for the 2022 summer exam series has recently been released whereby students will have access to some of the exam content, texts, topics and sub-topics, themes and skills due to be assessed for the majority of GCSE and all AS and A level subjects.
This has been released for students with the aim to help mitigate the impact of the pandemic on education and to focus their revision for their exams in summer. This is a really positive move, as we know that revising for exams in the latter few weeks can be an anxious enough time for both students and teachers alike.
To mark the start of Children's Mental Health Week and to celebrate the theme of 'growing together', we wanted to highlight resources and support available to support those who may be struggling:
- JCQ have developed an Advance Information Student Guide. You can find this information here: Download an accessible version
- Access subject by subject support for GCSE, AS and A level students in 2022 from Ofqual.
- Read an article on the Education Hub on how to help students prepare for exams this summer.
