WJEC 2016 SPECIFICATION MOCK EXAM PAPER for PAPER 1 (FULL PAPER THEME 1-3 and MARKSCHEME)

WJEC 2016 SPECIFICATION MOCK EXAM PAPER for PAPER 1 (FULL PAPER THEME 1-3 and MARKSCHEME)

It’s that time of the year again when we prepare our students with mock exams to see how well they know their stuff. In this mock exam pack, I have created a very detailed mark scheme that looks very similar to the real mark schemes that are used by WJEC examiners. In addition to this I have also added grade boundaries to help consistency with the department awarding process, but also I have looked at previous exam grade boundaries and given the best estimate to what they could be like in the summer. The mock paper includes only the first three themes and includes a range of different questions that help to show pupils the different ways that they could ask a question in the exam. Theme 1 uses the additional questions that have been uploaded to the WJEC websites, Theme 2 and 3 uses a range of past paper questions and exam style questions from the revision guide. The paper is set out like what the real exam paper would be set out like, giving students the opportunity to get a feel of what the real paper would be like. NB, I have decided to print my exam paper in booklet form on A3 paper as I feel like this would give pupils more of a feel for the exam, but you don’t have to do that Any feedback would be great!
