    Nah, I dont think it does either...the SQA wouldn't deliberately give an easy paper followed by an extremely hard one...besides, the papers are made up 2-3 years in advance anyway

    I was doing a Biology pretest for the 2008 exam a couple of weeks ago

    Yeah, I disagree with that theory because it just isn't fair.

    However, last years Higher Maths paper was rather easy...

    At my school with all the topic tests and prelims we have 70% is a 1 and 50% is a 2. If it's 75% I really shouldn't be doing Higher physics next year... but now I want to. And I got 93% in the 2nd prelim so who cares?!

    it varies from school to school, and year to year in the final exam...the general boundaries for standard grades are:

    2- 48-52%
    1- 68-72%

    but like i said, it varies...check out the SQA statistics on their website and then compare what you got in the relevant past paper to their cut-offs

    I think that's just so that the school has time to make up new timetables, etc and also to give the higher still candidates a little break

    I believe my school is only on exam leave 'till the 2nd of June. I guess exam leave is not made by the SQA but instead by the schools themselves.

    I actually have an exam on the first of June so I don't get much of a "break!"

    no, study leave isnt compulsary...the school is only obliged to give you the 24 hours before the exam to prepare...so the school gives you a little break at the end just out of the goodness of their heart

    Yeah, its good to keep the momentum going though. I think its a good idea on the schools part means we all get the most input possible before our exams yet we still get one full day before english to prepare.
