Being a GCSE English Examiner
As a tutor, I extended my repertoire by becoming a GCSE English Examiner in 2019. My time of teaching within schools, gave me the opportunity to move into the examiner arena. It has been an excellent way of further enhancing my knowledge in this subject area, alongside helping me to focus on the aims and objectives as established by the exam board. By my gaining better understanding of the assessment process, I can help my students improve their exam technique. My knowledge of examining will equally assist me in pointing out to my students what the examiners are looking for and what common mistakes to avoid. I am even more aware of how my students should prepare for the English exams.
