Exam preparation workshops

examThe Wernham West Centre for Learning (CFL) offers support throughout the year for boys to develop their “tool kit” for learning.

In order to support students through our exam preparation and process, our approach is to link how to best study and prepare for tests. Therefore, much of the exam preparation helps the boys develop study habits and strategies that will be helpful day to day.

As exams approach, we’re available to support boys with:

  • prioritizing areas where they may need to seek extra help (i.e. a concept in math);
  • developing a study plan;
  • developing subject-specific study strategies;
  • and providing additional support in other areas, such as how to stay motivated and focused, answer multiple choice questions, write short essay answers, and how to manage feelings of anxiousness.

Students will receive an email from the CFL inviting them to sign up for one the following exam prep sessions.
