IFS Exam: GCSE Resources (Full Name: IFS Level 2 Certificate in Financial Education)
Copy of powerpoint resources for Unit 1, 2, 3:
Past/sample papers can be found at :
PAPER 1 MODERN FICTION
o Prepare by reading a wide range of modern fiction texts: short stories in particular. Maybe
o Write creatively. Maybe try exercises such as these:
o Use the Mr Bruff videos:
PAPER 2 WRITERS’ VIEWPOINTS
o Prepare by reading opinion and lifestyle pieces online in broadsheet papers with free web
access: The Independent, Huffington Post, Guardian, Telegraph, Mail. For example:
o Write opinion pieces. Watch debate shows such as Question Time, or the Youth Parliament
debates on YouTube.
o Use the Mr Bruff videos:
PAPER 1 SHAKESPEARE and 19th CENTURY NOVEL
Romeo and Juliet
Jekyll and Hyde (or A Christmas Carol)
Read, reread and read again.
o Listen along to the audiobook for a different reading experience:
J and H: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3Rh4AlRzuc&t=220s
R and J: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4kt8EzPxNeA (once in Act 1, you will find the
links to all acts up to 5)
And quick recap vids such as this:
o Watch adaptations of scenes from R and J such as those in the link below. Attend
performances if they come up.
Obviously for those students studying a Christmas Carol, the run up to the mocks provides
plenty of opportunity to watch adaptations!
o Watch Mr Bruff and Francis Gilbert (YouTube)
o Use the revision workbooks- a couple of pages a day will be very useful
PAPER 2 MODERN TEXTS AND POETRY
An Inspector Calls
Power and Conflict Poetry
Again, there is no substitute for re reading the texts! But some other strategies to add are:
o Listen to the poems to help to memorise the poems- some decent readings (at times with
useful commentary also) are:
o Watch Mr Bruff
Or look at model answers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rClIkf8SPKA
o Revise poetic techniques using the Power and Conflict knowledge organiser
o Revise the context for An Inspector Calls with this programme:
