examination’s purpose is to help learners practice examination skills needed to
ensure success. The examinations are set up similarly to those the learners
will write in their final sitting and thus allow the learner to build skills
such as the following: learning effective examination time management;
developing clarity in how to answer questions to get the highest marks;
learning to avoid making mistakes; overcoming any exams anxiety and fears;
learning to identify key words in questions; paying attention to mark
allocations; learning to develop a quick plan on how to approach different
types of questions and many more examination skills specific to each individual
examination results are indicative of many different pointers that can help the
learners improve their preparedness for their final examinations. Pointers
include any gaps in basic knowledge or any lack in confidence shown in the way
a learner responds. A further pointer could include gaps in how a learner has
engaged with the material. These gaps can then be filled in before the final
examinations thus improving the final outcome.
