    I like how in the space of 21 hours you've gone from "not nervous because I'm better at that" to "so nervous ". You've got it covered. Chiiilll.

    So, seemingly just to mess with me, the teacher decided to make the second insane.

    I'm in the top set for maths and in the first prelim many people got 100 % ( not me I got 90 % ) so he still needed to decide who would get the maths prize. So he told us that this was going to be really hard to determine who would get it. It was. So difficult, had many aspects from the higher course.

    Anyway not that a big a deal now though as it's made actual past papers much easier, so less nervous about the real exam now, even though I think I failed this

    Last day before my study leave begins. Had a very emotional last period of Geography yesterday, as next year will be the first year I've never ended up getting the teacher I've got. I'm picking it back up for S6 so it's alright. Feeling good for computing on Friday after doing all the past papers, but nervous for chemistry next week. Minor celebration as its my last period of French first

    I'm on holiday on the 1 June so I miss a week of school... Ahaha! But we start 5th year that week and induction is some point during it must be the Monday I imagine. I can't remember when the p7s are over its for 3 days anyway, I guided them last year but its a real pain when the classes are divided into 2/3 groups all with different subjects so you have to split up and then make sure you collect the right people at the end of the lesson ahahaha other than that I actually enjoyed it

    Ahahaha excuse me! I retort ahahaha no it was in all seriousness quite fun you get out of classes early so it was fun back then well my class that I guided was 20 - 30 pupils changed depending on which subjects but there was someone who came with me until another guide group "could not be bothered" which led me and two other people to manage 60 pupils like a flock of sheep ahahah! I also had a tutor group I guided and it was the same one I'm in W2 for first years obviously ahaha

    Last week, I was volunteering at a neuroscience workshop for P7s: led them around; told them about, and showed them, all this cool stuff. It was brilliant. Kids are amazing and a lot of fun at that age. Just be enthusiastic and excited and eccentric. Your good vibes will bounce off of them and it'll be more fun for all of you.

    Thanks for the advice! I'll definitely keep that in mind (if I don't go insane from these exams first). I had my General and Credit Computing exam 2 hours ago. it was one of those rare occasions where the general test was harder than the credit.

    Every one of my friends and myself also thought the General was harder than the Credit. Odd one...

    Exactly, not to mention revising only credit level concepts worsened the problem.

    Has anyone got any tips for Standard Grade English Writing? As most of you will know the exam is on Monday :eek:
    I'm pretty chill about Close reading because its not incredibly hard but the Writing I struggle with a lot and is harder to revise. I think I am either doing reflective writing or discursive writing.

    Look at the link I posted on the standard grade english thread, it shows you examples of grade 2s and grade 1s so you can compare the difference.
    It helps alot

    Never do Discursive. My teacher has always said that because you will have just not researched enough on the random topic to get a 1. I recommend either personal/reflective or imaginative but I find personal/reflective much easier.
