Prelim finally here...Things are never as bad as they seem

I know that some of my s4 will finally be thinking about the prelim exam on Thursday- one of the perils of being the last prelim is that it can be easy to put off studying while you concentrate on your other subjects. I would say a few things which will hopefully settle the nerves. First of all, we have practised a lot of past paper questions in class, so you should have a reasonable idea of what to expect in terms of the wording of questions, the breakdown of marks etc. Secondly, after looking over the prelim checklist, I was pretty pleased with how many of you answered on the topics verbally - just make sure you get all the same points down when writing! Finally, remember to come see myself, Miss Green or Miss McGill if you have any last minute issues, or simply use the wiki to pose a question. Please look over your notes, your completed past papers and any other resources. Don't go into the exam feeling that you could have done more in preparation- anyone can have a bad day, but give yourself the best chance to get your best mark. It could be important later. The BBC Learning Zone Clips may come in handy, along with other sites already highlighted over the last few weeks. If I don't see you before Thursday, stay calm and the very best of luck :-)
