Prelims update

Because of the snow day on Monday 4 Feb, we’ve had to reschedule the prelims that were timetabled that day.

The changes are as follow:

Nat 5 and Higher Business Management moves to Thursday 21 Feb.  Same times as originally scheduled.  PLEASE NOTE that this is AFTER the February long weekend.

Nat 5 Woodwork to Wednesday 13 Feb.  Same times as originally scheduled.

Adv Higher Geography to Monday 11 Feb.  Same times as originally scheduled.

Nat 5 and Higher Geography to Tuesday 12 Feb.  Same times as originally scheduled though this will cause a clash for a number of pupils for whom alternative arrangements will be put in place.

This will make a change to seating plans for Nat 5 and Higher Geography pupils and pupils sitting Chemistry on 12 Feb.  These will be displayed outside the Hall on the day but if any pupils wants a new timetable to reflect these changes they should see Mr Ross.  Only Geography pupils with Alternative Assessment Arrangements will be issued with a new timetable as these have changed considerably.
