External Examination Preparation


Scroll down to register - but please do read this information

Schools should register each teacher who will be using the materials. 

Acting on feedback from last year, we will be making the materials available earlier this year.

We will be running the External Examination Preparation as one package with more flexibility for schools in using these materials with students.

The program will consist of three segments:

  • Writing the analytical essay: three fully revised/new recorded materials for teachers available from 23 July
  • For students and teachers - four sessions of new videos on Writing the Analytical Essay and pre-recorded text webinars: based on the EA texts from the Prescribed Text List  available from Wednesday 27 July
  • C. Live discussions in 30-minute blocks for teachers and students. These Zoom sessions will primarily relate to Writing the Analytical Essay, but students will be free to ask questions about their selected texts. These discussions will not be recorded. These sessions will be on Wednesday 7 at 4, 4:30, and 5pm and Saturday 10 September at 9. 9:30 and 10am. 

Note: An individual student may register and pay independently for the student segment if his/her school is not registering a teacher.
