BREAKING: Have just heard from a pretty reputable source that there has been a change in policy and that no S4-6s should be attending school to complete coursework.

Will share info as I get it

Schools should, however, put measures in place to allow coursework to be completed remotely where possible.

Yep, seems like a good decision - the fact some schools were trying to get large numbers back in for 2nd prelims was (in particular) ridiculous!

Maggie-xx Just wanted to check you've seen this, so you're not revising for extra prelims!

Glad you're able to relax a bit now and can hopefully enjoy the rest of your weekend!

I think they're probably still going to, based on what's been said...But they will need to now take into account that some people/schools won't be finished/allowed to finish...This site might be an alternative, if know (or can get a copy of) what you had on sibelius to be able to use (there's a free trial) https://www.noteflight.com/premium.

Emailing your teacher sounds like a good plan though
