In the Edexcel course, girls study a range of topics relating to their own life and choices. They learn to cope with increasingly spontaneous dialogues and to discuss relevant issues, expressing their opinions creatively. The weekly conversation classes continue from the previous year and are focused on exam preparations.
Sixth Form pupils have time allocated in their weekly timetable for Physical Education. We appreciate that by this stage, girls often have developed particular interests in certain activities, and they are given a wide range of choice to help them gain maximum benefits from this time. Options available include Swimming, Dance, Team Games, Tennis, Squash, Running, Kickboxing, Climbing, Yoga/Pilates and use of the fitness suite. Externally run workshops are offered throughout the term to expose girls to the many options for physical activities available to them when they leave school.
Through debating girls learn to express their ideas and build constructive arguments, offering rebuttals and presenting relevant points of information. All pupils are able to join either the Junior or Senior Debating Societies which meet weekly to discuss current events and develop debating skills. There are many opportunities for girls to take part in competitions and in the past these have included the Churchill Public Speaking Competition, the Rotary Club’s Youth Speaks Competition, the English Schools Mace and the Oxford Schools Debating Competition.
Topics in the PreU course are based on Chinese current affairs as well as personal reactions to events. The course involves the critical study of a period of history and of a piece of literature. Girls’ oral and research skills become increasingly refined as they develop analytical skills and complete a written essay.
The National Professional Practice Examination (NPPE) is administered by the Engineering Examinations Office of the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta (APEGA) on behalf of Engineers Canada.

You should make liberal use of headlines in your essay to signal the start and end of sections. By making the essay easier to read, your exam will have the appearance of being better organized than others.
First impressions are important. Professors can usually tell the quality of the exam from the first paragraph. There are two different methods for writing the first paragraph:
Don’t quote too much mix citations with your own opinions so that it doesn’t look as though you have to hide behind other people’s words. It’s fine to disagree with a scholar you quote, provided you can give evidence and reasoning for doing so. This shows that you have thought about it and made your own mind up, rather than blindly accepting what that scholar has said this demonstrates strong critical reasoning skills, one of the hallmarks of brilliant students.
My college Prof. once told us that Jack London used to stick new words near his mirror so that he could learn them while shaving, combing, etc. I found it pretty useful and I hope it helps others too.
Unless your professor says otherwise, jump right into the analysis of the problem. Don't recite the facts of the hypothetical as you would for a case memorandum in a legal writing class. It's a common mistake for first year students to apply the techniques of their legal research and writing course to exam writing. It's natural to think that there should be only one way to write in the legal field and to adopt those techniques for the exam. However, the exam tests different skills. The professor doesn't require that you repeat the facts. After all, she wrote up the hypothetical. However, this doesn't mean that you don't mention the facts. Use the facts to prove or disprove the rule. (See below.)
