S3 Prelim experience (follow up)

Well done to our S3 pupils today. I think it would be stretching things to say they enjoyed their prelim/exam experience but we hope they took something from it and that it will help them prepare for the next time they sit in that type of room and atmosphere.

They took things seriously, worked quietly, tried their best and lived up to the expectation of an actual exam. Well done all. Now, go and enjoy a well deserved long weekend!

We’ll see everyone again on Thursday 21 Feb.

Professor Brian Cox

On Wednesday 20 Feb, some of our Mathematicians and physicists are going to listen to a lecture by Professor Brian Cox in Aberdeen. We thought we’d let him know we were coming and if we should do some homework in advance. Within 10 mins we had a reply.

We’re all looking forward to the lecture.

S3 Prelims experience

The first time pupils experience the full exam atmosphere is when they sit their S4 prelims. This can often be a stressful time so to help our pupils prepare for this we are using tomorrow as a chance for S3 pupils to sit some course work in the exam experience while the Hall is set up. It’ll also give them the chance to hear why it is so important to be quiet when others are sitting their prelims and exams.

Prelim Day 11

Thursday is the last of our original scheduled Prelims.  However, remember that Business Management had to be moved to Thursday 21 Feb following the snow day last Monday.Prelims 2019 Day 11
