My Deaf and hard of hearing students have their national matriculation exams in a few weeks.
For some of these 11th graders it will be their first matriculation exam, ever.
I felt they needed a reminder of the “do’s and don’ts” of taking such exams. I felt it would be more effective and certainly more interesting to present the advice as ways to do poorly on the exam (or worse!) instead of suggestions and warnings.
Therefore, this slideshow is NOT intended for students to review on their own. It is meant as a way to go over important points with the students before the exam.
As always with my students, I tried to present these points in a visual manner, to enhance clarity.
NOTE: The tip regarding “sections on the exam that you don’t have to do” might not be relevant for teachers of students who do not get accommodations due to their hearing loss.
Wishing all our students the best of luck on their exams!
