Benefits of Mock Exams
Many students underperform in mock examinations in schools for a host of reasons: anxiety is often a factor in student performance; being unfamiliar with the exam process can lead to lower grades; potentially, a lack of revision leading up to the mocks highlights gaps in knowledge and learning.
By taking mock exams at home, it is possible to eliminate some of these problems. Instead, they provide additional practice for the student to get them used to sitting and concentrating for the length of time required. Students receive detailed student-friendly feedback that highlights what they’ve done well and areas to develop in their next assessment. By focusing on the feedback given to them, the process is about learning and developing exam skills, not about testing them and making judgments. They are not ranked or compared with anyone else, but students get clarity about what grade they’re currently working at, and how to improve.
