Administered effectively, past papers are the best way to prepare students for the experience of an examination. You can administer them throughout the school year to measure your learners' progression and development.
They are also a great tool for measuring your students' level of understanding and can identify any weaker subject areas, helping you guide your teaching in line with their needs. Use them alongside the mark schemes to help students become familiar with answering exam questions and meeting the assessment objectives.
They provide valuable evidence for learning and can help to support conversations with students, parents and school leaders, particularly if they are concerned about the effects of time away from school.
