  41. Engage Enable Empower Thornleigh Salesian College - A Sports College Qualifications for the future Research by The Daily Telegraph found that Imperial College London’s faculty of medicine said applicants needed three As and two Bs in GCSE biology, chemistry, English language, mathematics and physics. Sheffield University’s medical school said students needed six As in GCSEs, while Kent said students needed five passes at C or above, including English, for all its courses. The science facility at St Andrews said students needed the equivalent of B grades in English and maths. Warwick said all applicants needed a C or above in GCSE English language, as well as maths or a science subject, although many courses demanded grades “above this university minimum”. Leeds said students applying for dentistry needed six GCSEs, including Cs in English, maths, chemistry and biology.

  42. Engage Enable Empower Thornleigh Salesian College - A Sports College We seek to ensure that all students leave school with the right portfolio of qualifications which will allow them to progress onto the next step, whatever that might be. For almost all courses, apprenticeships and jobs there is a requirement that students have a functional literacy and numeracy qualification. For those students who cannot achieve this at a GCSE level we seek to provide them with other opportunities and qualifications. We seek your support in ensuring your child makes the most of every opportunity that they are presented with so that they can fulfil their potential

  44. Engage Enable Empower Thornleigh Salesian College - A Sports College Study Support All students should be completing a minimum of 1 ½ hours homework/revision/study per night As we move towards the mock exams this should be increasing, and by February half term should be 2 hours per night, averaged out over the week. Revision of work being done now is an on-going process – revision materials are best created when the topic is fresh. This may be done through summary diagrams, postcard notes, past paper questions, making mp3 files that can be listened to, using study websites such as Sam Learning or MyMaths You can support your child by ‘encouraging’ them to work, setting up routines with them at home, ensuring they have got the right resources and materials, talking to them about their work – if they can explain it they understand it!

  45. Get Organised • Get the stuff you need in the right place • Get revision cards and blank paper Do a Revision timetable but don’t use ridiculous detail. Prioritise your work. Work on the weakest. Plan around dates Leave time for constant review. WORK..TEST…REST Aim to reduce the amount of information. Do 5 Fact lists Condense information onto one side of A4 Revise each subject in short bursts. Review after 24 hrs, after 1 week

  46. Coping with stress • Stress in young people facing exams is very common • It may manifest itself either physically or emotionally
