Liebe ist fur alle da , nicht fur mich
Apart from the apparently random rammstein lyrics , I've got higher prelims in two weeks. Talk about unprepared.
For all of you that don't know of the scottish education system ( and probably english as well I'd assume) , you go through 4 phases when doing exams.
The first phase is the prelim , an exam , usually of slightly higher difficultly than the actual exam. Prelims will not only give the pupil , myself , an idea of what grade they'll get in the exam , but can also be used as evidence to increase your grade if you fuck up in the exam. If you balls-up your prelim , or if you haven't actually covered the whole course when you get the prelim , you'll do a post prelim. It's exactly the same as prelim , but just done later on.
After those two stages , you are set with the actual exam. The final stage is appeals , if you are absent from the exam because you are sick / injured / dead , your teachers will put forward an appeal based on your prelim / post prelim results. The better you do in your prelims , the higher the chance that your score will be upgraded.
And since the prelims are the "all-cure" , I don't think i'm going to do too well in them. We've done fuck all preparation past-paper wise in english , and haven't finished the course in music or in physics.
