SQA Higher maths predictionWatch
I failed badly as well and my school aren’t doing a second prelim
Got Ds in both tests and F in the prelim. My school however always make the prelim much harder than the exam and they have told us that. So I hope my prediction is higher than a fail.
Remember that prelims aren't the only thing that will be used for teacher estimates. While they've not confirmed details (therefore this is my personal speculation), I think that the SQA will be putting something in place to make sure that nobody is disadvantaged/advantaged by schools setting harder/easier prelims than what the usual standard of an SQA exam is.
If it comes to it, remember that there's always ways of doing things, and one of the things that the Scottish system does well is allowing you to resit in the following year. I know that won't be much consolation in the difficult situation everyone is in with this, but no matter what letter is on that piece of paper on results day, it will be ok.
