Revision resources:
CGP revision guide:

How to use this resource: Students have been given a CGP revision guide. This can be used to create mind maps or quizzes. This can then be used to check subject knowledge and understanding. There are also some exam questions and quiz questions created at the end of every unit. This is particularly useful for checking and revising subject knowledge.

How to use this resource: This resource is useful for testing the core knowledge, including key terminology for all the units. Students can be quizzed by a peer or an adult at home. The answers are also included. This is particularly important as students will need to understand the language used in the questions and the examiner will be looking for key terminology to be used accurately in the answer.

How to use this resource: This resource is focused on key exam questions for each unit. Students can use this to mind map subject knowledge and to have a go at answering exam questions. This helps to check understanding and application of the subject knowledge. Students can then receive feedback from their teachers. This is particularly useful for revising subject knowledge and checking understanding. As well as applying the knowledge to specific questions.

Seneca Learning

How to use this resource: Seneca learning has all the core content for components 1 and 2, with information to support student learning. Students can answer the questions in order to assess their subject knowledge. Resources can be re-read to ensure that there are no misconceptions. This is particularly useful for checking subject knowledge.

If students do not already have a username and password to log in to Seneca we suggest that they use their school email and a memorable password – perhaps the same as their school log in details.

Past exam question

How to use this resource: This resource contains all the past exam questions. Students can practice and answer these questions. Teachers can read these and provide feedback. This is particularly useful to check understanding and application of subject knowledge.

Audiopi

How to use this resource: Students can listen to the audiopi material and answer the guided exam questions at the end. They can also use some of the school made quizzes to support them as they listen. This is particularly useful for developing subject knowledge. Answering the exam style questions will further check subject knowledge, understanding and application. Every student has a log in username and password for audiopi on their e contact book, however if you are unsure please ask one of the RS teachers.
