Smart Revise can be used to simulate a real exam, albeit online. As a great alternative to Exam Builder, Exam Pro and other mock exam creation tools, Smart Revise can automatically choose the questions saving time, facilitate administration of the exam, provide online marking, automatic recording of results and soon analytics reports too.
How to use Smart Revise for mock exams
The key to setting a realistic mock exam is the distribution of question types.
Step 1: Set a task
Create a new task with the following settings:
For OCR J277 Computer Science, component one is topics 1.1-1.6. Component two is topics 2.1 to 2.5.
An OCR J277 Computer Science component one includes multiple choice, medium answer and just one extended response 8 mark question. The paper is 1 hour, 30 minutes. Typically you may configure the task as follows:
An OCR J277 Computer Science component two includes multiple choice, medium answer and just one 6 mark algorithm question. The paper is 1 hour, 30 minutes. Although the exact experience cannot be truly replicated, set the number of Advance 8+ mark questions to zero.
Smart Revise will support students having extra time if they are entitled to it, automatically adding this to the time available for the student and saving the setting so that teachers don’t need to remember this for future tasks.
Step 2: Mark the task
As this is a task the teacher will need to mark the task before any data is available for analysis in the mark book.
