Is this a real exam?


Exam scripts/papers/booklets

What to do:

How many times have you heard the question...
Sir/Miss is this the real exam?
Will this count towards our final mark?

Surely, students should know the answers to these questions! Surely, they should also know EXACTLY what their exam papers are asking them to do.

So, try this. Get an original past paper, preferably last years.
Annotate it. 

Then scan the paper and put it online, on a class blog- here is mine. 

Or simply, photocopy and give this to them. 
Or, then try a walking talking mock?


Get them to create their own examination papers, with typical/expected questions. Check they know the key details. Questioning structures, marks and so on?
