How parents and carers can best support their child

  1. Ensure your child has created and is following a revision timetable.

  2. Buy revision guide(s) and/or flashcards.

  3. Encourage the use of the TGS Google Student Support Classrooms (GCSE Biology Student Support,GCSE Chemistry Student Support & GCSE Physics Student Support).  These Classrooms contain in depth resources to help support the learning, the revision and the practice of application questions on all the content in GCSE Science for both Combined Science and Triple Science students.

  4. Ensure your child completes practice exam papers that are supplied and creates a list of topics they need to revise.
