These are very important for your daughter. Not only
will they help her understand where she is at with her
learning for NCEA exams, but they also are necessary
if there is a reason she cannot sit end of year exams.
They will decide her grades if she misses an exam from
illness or family catastrophe. Please encourage your
daughter to set a study timetable and help her to
stick with it. Ensure she has a place to study which
is quiet, cell phone, iPod, computer free...and
remind her that study is not reading over notes.
She needs to be making notes, diagrams, pictures from her school notes.
Ask if you can help by listening to or testing her.
For help in study techniques your daughter can see her tutor teacher, her YLC or her subject teachers. She can also access old exam papers and exemplars online.
Again get her to ask her teachers if she doesn't know how.
“There are no secrets to success.
It is the result of preparation,hard work, learning from failure”. ~ General Colin Powell
