Exam Preparation

This page provided key learning resources for the content you need to know for the exam paper. It also provides sample exam questions for each section of key learning.

You can print the learning resources and work on them or you can view the questions on screen and write on paper. If I teach you then these are the same resources that are on Google Classroom and which you can type on and submit for marking.

Note that I've written these exam questions but they're closely based on original OCR questions. So they will be similar to those you'll see on real exam papers.
