Prelims & Stress


Prelims & Stress

Ex Stronsay School Pupil Ocean Miller (currently studying at The University of Stirling) visited the school in order to observe teaching and gain some experience of working with pupils.  
On Thursday 07/01/16 Ocean visited the S4 Health and Wellbeing lesson with Mrs Brown and gave a very useful presentation to the S4 class about exams and stress.  Ocean offered advice on organisation, revision and progression to KGS and University, reflecting on her own recent experience.  This gave pupils a realistic insight into the process of preparing for and sitting exams, which will be invaluable for the approaching prelims and the SQA exams.

The SQA website also offers a helpful study guide section accessible to pupils and parents at:
http://www.sqa.org.uk/sqa/41319.html

This features links to past papers, tips for studying, help to combat stress and more.  
Pupils are also reminded that they can speak to any subject teacher with concerns or questions regarding exams and revision and that Mrs Brown is also always available for general guidance and support.
