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!
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.
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.
Aberdeen Medical School would like to invite S5 pupils thinking about Medicine or Medical Sciences to their upcoming Medical Conference event.
The event will take place at the Suttie Centre, Foresterhill Campus on Tuesday 26th March 2019. The event will run from 10am-3.30pm.
Pupils will have the opportunity to hear from Doctors working across hospital and community settings. Current Medical students at Aberdeen will give pupils an insight as to what it is really like to study Medicine. We will also have sessions on the UCAT, Medical Ethics and Admissions to Medicine.
