NESCOL Short Courses – Exam Preparation

NESCOL have provided us with the information below. If a pupil has any queries or questions about the following, please see Mrs Cruickshank.

We are pleased to make you aware of short courses which are on offer at NESCOL to assist candidates in preparing for end of year exams in Higher Sciences and Maths. All sessions are at Aberdeen City Campus, but physics is also available at Fraserburgh Campus.

Over seven evening sessions in the weeks leading up to the final exam, learners will work in small groups with other candidates to practice exam-style questions. Coaching during the class will help them improve the way they approach a range of questions. We will also cover aspects of the curriculum that have been identified as poorly answered in previous exams.

In previous years these sessions have been oversubscribed, so we would encourage early booking form any interested individuals.
