What are Mock Examinations
In Years 10 and 11, scholars sit Mock Examinations. These are internal examinations, completed under the same conditions as the official external GCSEs and are designed to provide a realistic experience and prepare scholars for approaching examination seasons.
Mock examinations are a replication of the Official Public GCSE assessments. These are an important indication of how scholars are getting on in all of their subjects ahead of their final GCSE’s.
In order to accurately intervene and support scholars in the most appropriate way, their teachers need an accurate picture of where they are in their knowledge, skills and understanding. This is why we really encourage our scholars and their parents/carers, to take Mock exams seriously.
