As we come to the end of the first month of the second semester, students begin to focus on the end-of-the-year examinations. With many schools phasing out the mid-year examinations or just testing certain components, the end-of-the-year exams are a good way to check on how students are faring in school. Most exams begin in October with the oral component being slightly earlier in September. One of the ways that we begin preparing our P3 students is by giving them both Vocabulary and Editing lists to learn. Students may also begin to attempt more challenging grammatical & comprehension exercises.

Below is an example of such a Vocabulary and Editing list. These lists are easy to create at home as well.
