  • GCSE History Mock Exam Preparation

    This information sheet is accompanied by 3 other sheets designed to support students in

    their preparation for their mock exams in January.

    We are aware of the very limited time students have to prepare for these exams as they

    continue their programmes of study but the attached Traffic Light Check Lists will help

    them to identify areas where they can focus revision for the greatest impact. If a student

    colour codes the sheet with as much accuracy as possible they will have coloured red the

    topics where they need to focus their revision.

    The page numbers on the sheets refer to a very useful revision guide, the details of which

    are provided at the top of both sheets & can be purchased from Amazon (or any other

    good book retailer!) Please make sure you do get the second edition (for exams from

    2015)

    The final sheet is just a quick reminder of timings and techniques for each exam. History

    teachers will go through these with their classes before the exams in January.

    There are lots of other resources available to support students learning but

    www.gcsepod.com is a resource purchased by the school which provides access to

    podcasts on all GCSE subjects including History and has excellent summaries of all the

    topics we study. All students have a login of their own choosing and it usually works with

    their school password.

    Thank you for your support
