How are you feeling about Prelims? Watch
Well, I am doing 5 highers this year: English, Modern Studies, History, Maths and French and the prelims for these subjects are on consecutive days, meaning as soon as I'm back to school after the holidays, the first entire week will be exam after exam for me! In terms of preparation, I've not done much but I'm hoping I won't do drastically bad... Just got to figure how to revise effectively for Modern Studies and History since in total I've done 8 essays for history and 12 for Modern Studies, making that 20 altogether... Oh man
Edit: Thank you for the continued support Labrador, even though I don't post a lot, I do like to read your kind words of encouragement
Thank you so much for your lovely message, you've made my day
At this stage, the fact you've been going to some supported study and have presumably been doing some homework and/or revision for class tests is definitely a good start! There is still time to put in some revisions for prelims, but remember they're not your end goal- the exams in May are.
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
Late reply but thanks for the confidence booster I'm really just focussing on passing them and I'm currently continuing revision in occurdance to my study timetable. Can't wait to get them out of the way as soon as possible.
Hi everyone, how have you all been getting on? And if your prelims are now out of the way, how did they go?
You can do it! So long as you do your best, nobody can ask any more of you. At the end of the day, although it's good practice to be working for them to get a true picture of how you're doing, prelims are just that- a practice. Treat them as a learning opportunity, and if they don't go to plan, that's okay- lots of people improve loads between prelims and real exams!
