Now that S4s have become S5s, old S3s are now S4s. It can be a pretty daunting time going into your first year of SQA exams!

So, new S5s, what advice would you give to this year's S4s?

Most important: REVISE EARLIER! especially if you have a teacher that doesn't teach, revising from textbook will be really rewarding .

Take assignments seriously, they matter more than you may think, and they may be the difference between a good or a bad grade if you don’t do too well on the exam. Most (if not all) subjects you cannot pass without the assignment, and if you don’t take it seriously it sets a bad impression to the examiner.

Study past papers - they will prepare you for the SQA paper format, and will benefit you in both your prelims and in your exams as you will know what you’re up against.

Don’t waste time complaining about bad teachers. If the teaching is particularly lacking, use online resources such as Scholar and Bitesize.

Most importantly, enjoy your courses. On the whole, Nat 5s were a good experience, and make a good stepping stone to prepare you for Highers.
