This presentation will be published in our forthcoming Exam Cafe.  We’ve already blogged a few times about Exam Cafe – the main revision feature within our ActiveTeach discs. Exam Cafe is packed with revision tools and insights, including:

  • Four related presentations explaining AO2 questions to your class, AO3 questions, Functional questions and QWC
  • Videos, showing the marking of a sample question and explaining what examiners are looking for
  • Revise and Improve presentations: targeted practice, so any student can focus on a specific topic at a specific grade
  • Range of other exam tools and tips
