Dear Candidate

You will be invited to sit a Preliminary Examination (Prelim) for all courses in March - May 2021. This is a controlled assessment which must be attempted in the presence of an Assessment Supervisor.

An Assessment Supervisor can be anyone in a position of authority who agrees to supervise your sitting of the papers. A teacher or lecturer is ideal but a range of other professions is also acceptable. An Assessment Supervisor cannot be someone you are related to or living with. For a list of suitable professions, see the link below.

A form for communicating your arrangement with us will be uploaded to each course page. Please return the completed form(s) to admin@scottishhighersonline.co.uk no later than 26th February.
