Preparing for the CE1d, a challenge!
The ce1d is a source of great stress for many of our children. It's true that this external certification exam marks the end of two full years of study. So the stakes are high! How can we help our children to prepare for, and then pass, the ce1d? Let's start with some practical advice.
Start to prepare yourself early. It is important to start preparing yourself early so that you have enough time to understand the requirements of the test and to practice.
Understand the requirements of the test. Make sure you understand the requirements of the test, the skills being assessed, the format of the questions, and the assessment criteria.
Use the resources provided by the school. Use the resources provided by the school, such as textbooks, online courses and exercises to prepare for the test.
Make regular revisions. Revise regularly to consolidate your knowledge and practise solving problems similar to those in the test.
Work as a team. If it is possible, work as a team with your classmates or other schools, it can help motivate and support each other.
Manage your stress. The test can be stressful, so it is important to know how to manage your stress to avoid being upset on the day of the exam.
Take breaks. Take regular breaks to rest and relax. Use these times to walk, exercise, eat a healthy meal or just relax.
Take care of your health. Make sure you eat a healthy diet, exercise regularly and get enough sleep to maintain your physical and mental health.
Be persistent. If you didn't succeed the first time, don't get discouraged and keep practising for the next opportunity.
Preparing for the CE1d: your complete solution. 1/ Identify the gaps
It is important to identify your child's strengths and weaknesses accurately before addressing them. Some may have difficulties in mathematics, while others may have difficulties in French. So we will start by identifying our child's specific needs in order to address them in a targeted and effective manner.
2/ Diagnosis, then reinforcement
A diagnosis carried out by professionals in the field of tutoring will enable us to accurately assess your child's level of preparation for exams in mathematics, science, French and modern languages (phew ;)). This will allow us to identify the subjects that require reinforcement. We will then focus on active reinforcement to actively consolidate their preparation, paying particular attention to the subjects that need it.
