How are you feeling about Prelims?Watch
When are your prelims, and how are you feeling about them?
My Higher prelims begin shortly after we return in January after Christmas break. Sadly we do not get study leave anymore like we used to which I prefer to revise at home. I'm doing Higher Maths, English, Geography, Design & Manufacture and Geography. I have to confess I have done no revision at all except from some supported study sessions. I feel terrible just like with my National 5's because I feel if I do bad in them the chances of me sitting Higher will be gone.
In terms of worrying about doing badly in them, if you pass the prelim I can't really see any reason why a school wouldn't out you in for the exam. And generally schools and teachers recognise that you can still improve a lot in 4 months, so even if you don't pass it in January, if you work hard, you can do well in the final exam.
Don't place too much value on prelims, but there's always people here willing to help if you need a hand with anything
Our higher prelims are in January next year, think they’ll be alright as long as I keep up with my revision I’m following at the moment, after last year I’m a lot more able to plan my studying and manage time, best of luck with prelims Though I’m apprehensive about not having much time between prelims, going to be intense if it’s the same setup as last year.
The thing about how squished together they all are is never ideal There's always that possibility in the ones in may as well, if you're unfortunate enough. Just make sure you keep being ready well in advance and look after yourself during the exam period, so you are able to do your best in the later ones!
Our National 5 prelims start right after winter break and I haven't really had a chance to start studying because we are currently doing assignments . I take English, Maths, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Geography, Engineering Science and Latin.
I guess the assignments are going well, there's still 2 to go and I plan on aligning my other revision with a revision timetable our chemistry teacher gives us.
Our prelims start in January 2019. We get study leave, I am in S4. I’m doing all National 5’s at the moment, I took (English, Maths) French, Modern Studies, Art & Design ans Graphic Communication. I am drowning in work. I didn’t realise how much time Art would take up and I’m struggling. Prelims are approaching fast so fingers crossed I do well! 😬😂
Art is a pretty time consuming subject! Is it the quantity of work overall, or is it managing your time that you're struggling with, or something else?
Haha, I've been so busy with a healthy mix of course work and procrastination I've not even started revision yet (help) - like most of you mine are in January, so at least I've got the Christmas break!
I really want to do well but I'm not sure how to manage my revision time right now. Anyway I've still got an assignment to do next week so once I've got that out the way I can focus on my prelims.
