As parents, we all want our children to succeed academically. However, sometimes we may overlook the importance of understanding the assessment objectives in the mark scheme. The results from our recent GCSE English quiz showed that only 25% of participants believed their child had a good grasp of these objectives.
This is a concerning statistic, as the assessment objectives outline the skills and knowledge that students need to demonstrate in order to achieve a good grade in their literature exams. Without a thorough understanding of these objectives, students may struggle to effectively answer exam questions and showcase their abilities.
It is important for parents to take an active role in their child’s education and ensure that they are familiar with the mark scheme. This can involve reviewing past exam papers together, discussing the assessment objectives, and seeking additional support if necessary.
By taking the time to understand the mark scheme, parents can provide their child with the tools and knowledge needed to excel in their literature exams. So, if you haven’t already, we encourage you to take our GCSE English Quiz and see how well your child understands the assessment objectives. Your child’s academic success may depend on it.
