    Unless loads of schools continue to stay off for a couple more weeks then there isn't much chance of the SQA delaying exams. They can't really, if they delay exams then that delays the result dates, and hense its a chain reaction as then universities wouldn't have time to prepare etc/make decisions.

    It really is going to come down to your own personal effort. You need to attend after school supported study etc and ask for extra work.

    Out of interest, what subjects are you doing? i might be able to provide some materials ?
    Thanks for the advice. I am doing higher maths, english, modern studies, french and biology. Any materials would be greatly appreciated?

    I am doing Maths, english , french,geography physics, so i can help with those.

    French: Read a french newspaper for reading practice. Read a sentence, try to understand it, note down any words/phrases you dont know; translate them , then full understand the sentence.

    Listening is difficult to work on, im still trying searching for the best way to work on it, i'll message you when i get something good. I am going to see if i can develop some kind of system using youtube news videos in french. At the moment perhaps use the " MA France " videos on the BBC website, using the subtitles in french.

    MAths: What topic are you on?

    Read through notes on HSN: http://www.hsn.uk.net/resources/Hmath/notes

    What textbook do you use? If its the heineman higher maths one then it gives you examples..... After reading notes/examples try some questions... Depending on the topic your on i can provide help

    Have you been given access so Scholar yet? http://scholar.hw.ac.uk/ it might help you with maths and perhaps biology. French too.


    English:

    Again it depends on what your doing. If you have already done a novel, then draw mindmaps on this, branching off things like setting, characters etc, you get what i mean.

    DO the same for you poems or play. Basically get yourself very familiar with your studies ( novel/play/poems ), so that you know exactly whats happening, analysing what different things mean etc.

    Dont forget to work on close reading. Look at good quality newspapers such as the times and analayse it. Why has he said this? what does it mean? why has the sentence been structured like this? etc. Alternatively i can send you a copy of a sheet which you can stick to for analysing them?

    You could always try a couple past papers from the SQA website; http://www.sqa.org.uk/pastpapers/findpastpaper.htm

    I hope i have helped, please quote me when replying

    french is probably the hardest one to revise for just change dvd languages and things i like to do that

    the rest are just sort of grind down and revise types but it wont be that bad don't worry and things will be better
