S4 Prelim arrangements

old exam system
‘OLD’ EXAM SYSTEM:
  • almost all S4 pupils sat prelims and final SQA Standard Grade exams (F/G or G/C) in 8 subjects
  • Important that all learners had study leave to help them maximise their grades in their exams in all subjects
  • Prelims were very important for APPEALS!
new national qualifications
NEW NATIONAL QUALIFICATIONS:
  • new National 4 and 5 courses have replaced Standard Grade
  • some S4 pupils being presented at National 4 in all subject – all internally assessed but SQA verify.
  • Some S4 pupils being presented in a mix of National 4 and National 5 – will have prelim exams for National 5 subjects only
  • Some S4 pupils being presented at National 5 in all subjects ( 8 prelims for most, 6 for Dance School students)
  • APPEALS SYSTEM NO LONGER EXISTS!
s4 prelim support
S4 Prelim Support

NO APPEALS - so why have S4 prelims at all?

  • support staff’s professional judgement
  • provides more evidence for presentation level
  • Gives you practice in exam techniques and experience ‘the exam room’ before you sit any May/June SQA National 5 exams

So why no ‘old style’ S4 Study Leave?

  • Learners studying subjects at National 4 level would lose a lot of important teaching time. Not helpful to learners attainment or staff delivering the courses for the first time!
  • Research shows that young people do better when there is structured support provided – Supported Study and the S4 Prelim Timetable Support
  • To maximise the time for learning and minimise the time for assessment!
