How are you feeling about them?
Just finished ours at my school - all went well apart from maths where I got a C, but I got an A in everything else. Definitely nice to have more time to do assignments though.
My first prelim is higher english tomorrow and I have never been more nervous in my life. I cannot write fast at all and am struggling to memorise any quotes
On writing fast, this was something I can remember being really worried about...In the exam situation though, many people surprise themselves with how much they're able to write, so don't stress too much about that side of things. In general, it's also a case of quality over quantity
With the quotes, you don't need masses of them-just a couple per paragraph is plenty! Even if you can't remember the exact wording it's okay- a quote is great, but a reference to the text is also more than fine!
I felt the exact same before higher English, so I know this is much easier said than done, but remember it's a prelim, not the real thing...Lots of people improve loads, particularly in English, between prelims and the exam, so the worst that can happen is that you learn which areas of the course you need to concentrate on.
Make sure you get a decent rest tonight and just do your best tomorrow- that's all anyone can ask of you. You've got this
