The first full examinations involving large cohorts of our Year 11 and Sixth Form students have begun. All the ‘hard yards’ have been completed in preparing for these tests and it remains for those involved to stay resolute and strong through the busy next few weeks. Good study organisation with ‘down time’, a good sleep pattern (at least an hour before midnight is important), a pattern of moderate exercise and regular meals that help sustain energy will sustain you through your exam schedule. Although examinations carry no guarantees hard work and commitment over time usually pay off. The very best of luck to you all!
