It’s the time of the year for the first end of topic test. In science, students predict how well they think they will perform and then compare this prediction with their actual grade/mark. Research has shown that students can accurately predict their performance. The comparison of predicted and actual grades forms the basis of a post exam learning conversation and reflection on what the student can do to close the gaps in their knowledge.
The first test will also be used to set their personal best (PB) for the rest of the course, students will track and strive to beat their PB.
By reflecting on their learning and always striving to improve, our students are working towards excellence.
It’s the time of year when grade 12’s are working hard on their internal assessments as the final deadlines draw ever closer.

The featured investigation is on factors affecting the ripening of fruit. It was awarded 22/24.
