At St Albans Girls' School, your child will take exams and assessments as necessary so that we can assess their progress internally, and they can achieve public examination results.
Internal assessments will be taken on a regular basis in class. All year groups (except Years 11 and 13) will take internal End of Year Examinations in order to prepare them for the rigours of public exams in the future. Mock GCSE and A level Exams take place in the November/December before their final public exams in May/June. All these exams are taken under formal exam conditions, in classrooms at Key Stage 3 and in the Sports Hall at Key Stages 4 and 5.
Regular retrieval practice and revision are at the heart of teaching and learning at STAGS. The more students retrieve, the more they remember. More details on revision techniques can be found here.
If you have any queries about exams please contact our Exams Officer.
