End of Prelim Run

by Emma Davie -

Well done to everyone who attempted one or more of the prelim exams over the past three weeks. You should receive your results by next Friday (21st). We will use these results to submit 'estimates' to the SQA as an indication of how you are likely to do in the exams.

For anyone who was unable to attend a scheduled prelim sitting, I will offer two 'mop up' sessions (morning and evening) on Wednesday 26th April. Although the results of these sittings cannot be used to provide estimates to the SQA, they will provide you with an opportunity to practise for the exam(s) and receive valuable feedback from your tutor(s).

Please let me know which which prelim you would like to attempt and which session is most convenient by emailing me by 24th April. This will allow me to plan more effectively.

Prepare for Prelims

by Emma Davie -

Thank you to everyone who attended the practice sessions earlier this week. I hope you found the advice and demonstration helpful in understanding how to prepare for your remote assessment. Written guidance is also available on each of the course pages to ensure the sittings run as smoothly as possible.

I have selected the recording from session 5 to share with you: partly because it is the shortest of the six and partly because it is post long-overdue haircut ;-) See link below:

Prelim Practice 5.mp4

Prelim papers will be uploaded to the course pages over the next two days but you will not be able to access them until 6pm on the day of your prelim. A Zoom link will be emailed to you the day before your prelim sitting(s). You should join this meeting on a mobile device at 5.45pm.

I'll see you all soon!
