Year 11 GCSE Countdown

With just 45 days until GCSE's our Year 11 students took part in a Chemistry Conference. Experienced teacher of Chemistry and examiner of GCSE Science, Jamie Sinclair from Keynote Educational led the session.


The conference allowed the students to analyse exam question responses and receive top advice and tips ahead of their exams. Students were given the opportunity to ask questions and ended the sessions with a full set of revision notes.


Students stated they found the conference really useful as it was knowledge based, with lots of information that they needed ahead of the exams. They found the sessions engaging with lots of useful revision tips. One student commented that they felt much more confident now.
