For students in Year 11 and Year 13, mock examinations are an important part of the preparation and build up to the final examinations that will take place in May and June next year; they provide opportunities for students to experience the range of subjects that they are studying in a short space of time and they provide valuable assessment information to teachers, Heads of House and form tutors that will enable effective and targeted intervention to take place in the light of the results. Finally, they give students the opportunity to build on and extend revision that they completed for Year 10 or Year 12 examinations that will aid their final preparation in the new year.
