Hi guys, :wavey:

Exam Boards have now released the additional assessment material that may be used by teachers in any assessments that you have up and coming. This doesn't seem to have been done in a particularly co-ordinated way, so I thought we would bring it all together in one place so that you can find these questions if you want to.

Additional Assessment Material by Exam Board

  • AQA (All Levels) - Scroll down to 'Get Assessment and Support Materials' select your level and the subject you are looking for and select 'see materials'

  • OCR (All Levels) - Select your level and subject and download the ZIP file provided.

  • Pearson Edexcel (All levels) - Select your level and then subject underneath the header "Summer 2021 assessment materials for students" Then simply open up the tab called 'Summer 2021 assessment materials for students'

  • Eduqas (All levels) - Select your subject, then click the tab resources and finally the Summer 21 Assessment Materials tab that will appear below.

We will try and keep this list updated as we find more.


TSR's Guidance for using the Additional Assessment Material (AAM)

Number 1: The most important bit of advice we can give, do not panic. There is no benefit to downloading every single resource and trying to cram them all in the hope that you may recognise a question in one of your exams (if your teachers even decide to set you one). Teachers have a range of questions to choose from and trying to memorise answers to every possible combination of exam questions and these materials is not an effective way of studying.

Number 2: If you are going to use these as revision resources, make sure you are only looking at topics that you have covered with your teachers. Teachers will not be setting you surprise questions from topics that you have missed due to the pandemic.

Number 3: Take a second and ask yourself, how do I learn best? For some people going through these questions and trying to answer them may be the best thing for them, but for others it may be better to trust your existing revision methods. There's nothing wrong with going back to your mind maps or textbooks.

Number 4: If in doubt, ask your teachers. Your teachers are the ones who will be assessing you this summer, so they are the best placed in supporting and advising you on how to incorporate this material into your revision.

If you have any questions about what the above means to you, please feel free to ask below and we will try and support as much as possible. This is all very new to everyone involved!

In Year 13 and unsure about your uni place this year? Sign up to receive updates on exams and results, so you know what's coming and how to be prepared.

Hmm, it does seem that these questions are behind a wall. I will look into this now, potentially I've linked to the wrong resource!

They're up on this page now for maths, under "Summer 2021 assessment materials for students" (definitely weren't there earlier!) - I'm guessing they're under the same menus for other subjects too

Edit: Yep, just go to the relevant subject page and click on "Teaching and learning materials" and they should be there

Just realised this has just been posted above. I have just tried it again now and it does work. I have been using this since around 10.00 am this morning but I agree it’s not that easy to find.

Yes I've figured it out! Far too complicated for a Monday! Will update instructions accordingly now!

They've just misnamed them - if you download the documents you'll see half of them are actually higher (hence why there seem to be two foundation sets for each unit).

I am unable to download the English language. Do you need downloading on pc rather than phones as it’s a zip file.
