Please note that pupils are not permitted study leave during prelims. Our arrangements are as follows:

During the prelim exams pupils will be marked present on the day of their exam. If pupils do not have an exam on a particular day and do not attend school they will be marked absent. If for any reason your child is unwell or is unable to sit an exam the school should be contacted as soon as possible.


  • Throughout this week class teachers will be available as normal to offer support with revision.
  • Pupils by now should have a study timetable which will help them to thoroughly prepare for their forthcoming exams.
  • SQA past papers 
  • BBC bitesize websites
  • Scholar also provide useful revision materials.
  • Supported study is available in the majority of subjects.

Seat numbers

It is pupils’ responsibility to find out their seat number for each exam in advance and add the information to their timetables.  Seat numbers for all exams are displayed on the noticeboard across from the Support for Learning base. Principal Teachers will also advise pupils where this information is posted in relation to specific subjects.

Pupils should not go into any exam without knowing their seat numbers.
