Coping With Exam Pressure

Ofqual have also produced here a guide for students to help them cope with exam pressures.

GCSE Students (Year 11)

  • Some subjects (English Literature, History and Geography) will have optional topics from the exam papers. Teachers will choose these and all Cheam students will do the same options in these subjects.
  • In all of the other subjects, we have now been told some of the topics that will and will not come up in the summer exams to help with revision - please click here.
  • In Art related subjects, students will be assessed on their portfolio only, not by exam.  
  • In Maths, Physics and Combined Science students will be allowed a formulae sheet. Students will practise using these in lessons.
  • In Science subjects students will watch some practicals being demonstrated and others they will complete themselves. This doesn’t change how they will be assessed and is not different from a ‘normal’ exam period.

The results day for Year 11 will be 25th August 2022.

AS/A Level Students (Year 13)

  • In all subjects we have now been told some of the topics that will and will not come up in the summer exams to help with revision - please click here.
  • In Art related subjects, students will be assessed on their portfolio only, not by exam.  

The results day for Year 13 will be 18th August 2022.
