About this Event

This is a 3.5hr taster session for students to try out the pace and level of the intensive Exam Preparation Bootcamp days in April (tickets for these will be on sale shortly). This trial session also works well as a stand-alone revision event, so there's no obligation for students to attend the April Bookcamp days if they don't want to.

This event is ideally suited to CIE IGCSE students aiming for grades 6-9 or B-A*.

Itinerary for the day:

9:15-9:30am Intros and refreshments

9:30-11am English Language Paper 1 (Reading)

11-1pm English Language Paper 2 (Writing)

What we'll cover:
  • Guided overview of each paper (CIE English Language)
  • Hints and tips for answering each question
  • Advice on timings: reading, planning, writing and checking
  • Guidance on how each paper is marked by CIE examiners
  • Creating revision cards
What students have said about my previous Revision Bootcamps: "The revision bootcamp was very insightful and a great experience. The lectures were absolutely brilliant – they were interactive and helpful. I can definitely say the bootcamp has increased my confidence going into the exam." Student "The girls were very impressed with the revision day. They were literally "buzzing" when they arrived home and it has certainly opened their eyes & minds. A big thank you from me for making them feel so welcome & putting them at ease." Parent "I am really happy that I took this opportunity, despite having to travel quite a way – it was wholly worth it. I now feel more confident going into my last few months before the exams." Student "I came away from the bootcamp not only with new ideas but with a new confidence to express them in writing."
