Higher revision classes run most evenings after school. Now that the prelims are completed, which will be returned before the February break, you need to identify your own action plans and focus your revision in a structured manner. Target setting discussions will also be happening in class to help you work out which areas you should be looking at again. We will start straight after prelim leave working towards the second NAB on addition formula and circles, before starting Unit 3 topics
Remember, it is a fast paced course and it’s easier to keep up than catch up!
Any after school revision classes should suppliment your work at home and in lessons. Please start revision early and use www.sqa.org for past paper questions. These also come with marking schemes so you can check your work as you go along. You all should have access to SCHOLAR too so can you please make use of all the materials you have been given in class and via the internet.
The pace will continue to be fast, so be prepared to keep up with your class work and homework exercises.
