What do teachers say about this resource? (7459)

Excellent. A comprehensive pack [that] delivers far more than the title suggests... I particularly liked how teaching strategies that could be delivered across a period of time. It was useful to see different approaches and teaching methods used to enhance the benefits of the Practice Papers... The rationale behind the resource details the vast array of benefits using this document will bring – and it consistently delivers on this promise... The resource is of a very high standard and allows for the students to develop their exam skills in a range of ways. By having three papers, with detailed strategies and mark schemes, there is a host of opportunities for development. The overview of how the resource could be utilised across groups with differing abilities was a great bonus... The layout was very clear and incredibly helpful. The papers mirrored what you would expect to see in a real exam, and the mats were a really useful and colourful resource... Everything was very clear and easy to navigate... It's an excellent fit to the spec... The writer demonstrates considerable insight into the challenge and demand expected of the students and provides numerous strategies on how to succeed.

What do teachers say about this resource? (7433)

A useful and effective resource for use in the classroom or as individual papers for students to complete as homework. The instructions are sufficiently straightforward and clear for students to work through the activities at their own pace, even without the presence of a teacher... The range of reading materials is interesting... The sample answers are very useful for students to understand the progression of skills.

P Adair, Examiner & Peer Reviewer

A good set of resources with helpful sample answers... The text choices are good and the questions are in line with samples from the exam board... A time-saving resource that is a good demonstration of the type of text the board might select for Component 1.
