Exam survival Kit list

Exam survival Kit list

I used these with my yr 11s before they sat their exams. I collected together the objects on the list and put them into A5 plastic wallets. A bit of fun really, but the students loved them and they could be easily adapted if needed. Not a completely original idea, but I’ve created these list myself. You can buy kits that are completed with the items already gathered. However, the ones i could find were not great and quite pricey. I also thought it was nice to be able to personalise them if you wanted to. The picture is of one of the kits put together, although you can quite see all the items.
