Taking a look at Past Papers is an incredibly valuable way to measure how ready you are for an exam or assessment. By using past examples you can get a sense of what assessors will be asking so you don't get any nasty surprises on the day.

In this lesson, students will be going through a past exam paper for GCSE Sociology on 'Sociology of education' looking at how to answer exam questions

This is a unique chance to get first hand insight into how examiners read and mark exams which can hugely help students consider what is important when they take their exams and when considering how teachers will assess their work.
