Exams & revision

The aim of exams is to inform others, as well as you, about the standard of your work. Unless there was some form of recognised standard, qualifications would lose their validity. Formal exams are objective, as the assessors use the same criteria for judging all candidates.

Since exams have to be faced, this guide hopes to help reduce some of the problems they pose by giving you ways to make revision more effective and strategies to employ on the day.
