Notes for exams

Here are some documents for setting exam papers which should be of use for teachers and also give students practise at answering questions from the command words.

My thanks to Mr S Farmer and Mr A Bailey for these.

Motivation

  • Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.
  • Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.
  • You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them.
  • It always seems impossible until it’s done.
  • You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.
  • You don’t always get what you wish for; you get what you work for.
  • It’s not about how bad you want it. It’s about how hard you’re willing to work for it.
  • Challenges are what make life interesting. Overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.
  • The pain you feel today is the strength you will feel tomorrow. For every challenge encountered there is opportunity for growth.

Quantity, Symbol, Unit, Unit Symbol

I’ve put together, with Mrs Mac’s help, a document with quantity, symbol, unit and unit symbol so that you know the meaning of the terms in the Relationships Sheet. It is in EXCEL so that you can sort it by course, quantity or symbol.

Quantity, Symbol, Units the excel sheet

Quantity, Symbol, Units a pdf sheet sorted by course and then alphabetical by quantity.

This is the same information in readily available Tablepress form. If you click on the Higher tab at the top it should sort by terms that you need in alphabetical order, or search for a term. Let me know if I’ve missed any.

Revision Plan

28/02/18. If you’re stuck inside- DON’T go on your X-boxes, PS4 or whatever the latest number try doing some timed papers.

To the student’s sister who needs the Quantity, Units, Symbols etc .I’ve uploaded the old pre-CfE version and you can just add the additional few. Check out Int1-AH many are relevant. Missing would be t’, l’ etc.

quantity symbol sheet 

If there is a snow day tomorrow, use the time to look at the EMF material and the test will be as soon as we get back.

This is a ten week revision plan, put together by Mr A Riddell from “up North”. It will give you some ideas on how to break up the daunting task of revision. You don’t have to complete this in the same order, but it does give an indication of how much you need to cover in one week.
