Supporting our young people during exams
Our pre-lim diet continued today with N5 maths taking place. Over the next few weeks parents and carers will be facing a situation they have never faced before as our senior pupils gear up for these exams. In order to support them at home, staff at Marr College have created the following presentation, which is full of practical advice and help for our parents/carers on how to support and encourage all our young people at home. Everyone at Marr wishes all our senior pupils the best of luck over the coming weeks.
Supported Study 2019
We are delighted to confirm the timetable for supported study for S4, 5 and 6 ahead of the final SQA examination diet which commences 25 April 2019. We would be most grateful if parents would discuss this with your son/daughter and encourage them to attend supported study as often as possible. Please click the image below to view the timetable.
The prelim timetable for January 2019 has now been published on our SQA and Examinations Page.
N5 Hospitality, English, Maths, Numeracy and Hospitality will be examined in Dec 2018 and the timetable for these prelims can also be viewed on the same page.
Good Luck to all our students in their upcoming prelims.
