Exam support bookmark

We are outlining the idea of an exam support bookmark which is a bookmark for GCSE students to use whilst completing assessments in their assessment books. This double sided bookmark is laminated to last and the bookmark is student friendly and outlines some of the key command words and writing tips to support students in their exam technique and help them succeed in their exam style answers.

The bookmark covers:

  • BUG the Q!
  • Command words
  • Exam levels and criteria
  • Examples of connectives/developments
  • Example statements connected to different levels

In Geography students are provided with one at the start of their studies and are encouraged to return them at the end of their course in order to be re-used again. If you’d like to create your own version of this bookmark for your exam groups you can download the Geography department’s version here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/aqa-gcse-geography-exam-support-bookmark-11511918.
