ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
This webinar is the fourth in a series of four GCSE focused webinars which aim to introduce students to the level at which they will have to work to achieve the highest grades. Although this is part of a series it can also be attended as a standalone session. Students will gain an understanding of how they will be assessed in the exams on the practical apparatus and techniques in the GCSE. They will take away a working knowledge of the details of the experiments that they will need to memorise and what they will be expected to do with that knowledge in the exams. They will also be introduced to strategies to ensure that they don’t miss a mark on the challenging analysis and evaluation questions on the required practicals in the GCSE.
BENEFITS OF THIS WEBINAR
- Apparatus and techniques audit sheet
- A methodology for approaching GCSE required practicals questions
- Detailed revision notes for each required practical
- Evaluation practice sheets
PROGRAMME (4.30 – 5.30pm)
4.30pm: Welcome and Introduction
- Technical check
- Some considerations for the class of 2021, especially considering the likely inability to conduct each practical.
- Accompanying materials
4:35 pm: Apparatus and techniques audit.
- How to use the audit and what to do with the outcomes of it.
- Priority strategy. You cannot leave it to chance.
- Self-quizzing is crucial, it builds recall. You then need to do exam practice to develop problem solving skills.
4:50pm: Understanding and memorising each practical
- In the absence of conducting the practicals, how to use demos, videos and simulations to understand the process of each practical.
- The scientific method applied to exams.
- An easy to digest revision resource with notes on each practical.
5:00pm: Practical skills questions examples
- Practical Question Command Words
- 6 mark describe questions
- Analysis questions
- Evaluation questions
